Many other flight school club members had other adventures, such as enjoying the Jersey Shore, flights to New England, sharing flights with their friend and family, touring the McGuire AFB control tour, attending the Atlantic City – Thunder Over the Boardwalk Airshow, flying around to different places building time, checking out in a different aircraft, or just working on one of their flight ratings.
