ALL PILOTS MUST READ!
GDPR REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS
Due to the new GDPR Regulations, (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), now in force, we will not be sending this message out via Bulk Mail. As we cannot be sure that we have your or any members permission to send out what is now regarded as unsolicited mail.
What does this mean?
It basically means that if you do not read this message, and follow the explicit instructions below, we will eventually have no choice but to remove you from the MacAir members list by July 21st at the latest. If you are not reading this, then it will effectively remove your involvement with MacAir when we begin to fully enforce the new regulation at that time.
We are unfortunately 'forced' to do this to comply with the new regulations. If we don't, we could face fines at best, and a complete closure of MacAir at worst. I will not allow that to happen as I'm sure you understand.
We assume that we will lose a good many members, but our hopes are that this move encourages our core members and new members to be involved, interested, and active on the MacAir Forum. It also means, that 'if you are not reading this' you will be surprised that your account will have been made dormant, and will only be reactivated if you have the energy to seek out reinstatement. And even then, you will be required to come to the Forum and read this message, before reinstatement is considered.
If you do wish reinstatement, it will require that you give your permission for us to hold your E-Mail address, your basic name and age details, (for safety sake in only having adults within the group). And that anyone not giving this permission, will not be able to successfully apply and fly for MacAir.
More information will be forthcoming - until then, can we ask that those of you who read this, place your name below, to say that you have read it, that you are happy for your details to be held, for the present and the future. And that you are content that we have your 'present' up-to-date E-Mail address currently in your profile, (send via PM if it is not the one that we presently hold), for use under the new GDPR Regulations.
If you do not read this message? It will come as a surprise when you are eventually removed from the MacAir Roster and Forums, and then you seek reactivation - for that will require that you have to reregister and start from scratch AND that you use the Forum to again agree to this regulation. As the forums are where everything MacAir has to offer will exist beginning July 15th. The Main Site will not be a function of information giving or sharing.
You will still not be 'required' to converse in the forums, but as always we sincerely hope that you do. It is the 'life' of MacAir and there are lots of great folks on there.
We have nothing but the hope that you will continue to support MacAir, in whichever way suits your future requirements. It will be your choice and we of course hope sincerely that everyone will see this and choose to continue their membership with us.
I had hoped that these new regulations wouldn't affect MacAir but unfortunately they do.

JULY DESTINATION OF THE MONTH - MACKINAC ISLAND AIRPORT
This month, you'll be flying to the lovely little resort town of Mackinac Island, Michigan, located on Mackinac Island in Michigan. Note that it's pronounced "Mack-in-awe", if you ask tower for "Mack-in-Nack" they might be pretty confused (although, there's no manned tower at Mackinac, only UNICOM). The island itself is about 3.8 square miles, located in lake Huron at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac which divide the state into (colloqually) 'the mitten' and 'The U.P.' The original native settlers of the area thought the island resembled a turtle, so they named it "Mitchimakinak" (mishimikinaak in Ojibwe) meaning "Big Turtle". The French then spelled it as "Michilimackinac", which was shortend by the Brittish to "Mackinac".
The town of Mackinac Island covers approzimately 18,84 square miles- encompassing all of Mackinac Island, as well as Round Island to the south, plus 14.49 square miles of water. 82 percent of this, however, is owned by the state, with the City itself only having jurisdiction over 18 percent of the island.
While you are on the island, you can stay at the famous Grand Hotel, and tour some of the many fudge shops. Another thing you will note as you walk around the island is that there are no motor vehicles- cars and trucks are generally banned on the island, with the major exception being emergency response vehicles.
Since this is classified as a general aviation facility, you will need to use the brand new Charter Division to complete this DotM! I have already set up a flight from CYQT- Thunder Bay, in Canada, although you may feel free to set up one of your own! It is a 3,500 foot runway, although there is no FBO, so no refueling will be possible- you'll need to bring along enough fuel to get you off the island!
Brought to you by Ken C. - DoTM Manager
We wish you safe flights and above all...have fun!
