Ron Angerman's easy going manner and likeable personality are known by everyone at the airpark. Ron served as association Vice-President in 2007.
Ron is a hard worker too who is constantly "taking care of business". He is an electrical contractor who owns his own business. He's wired hundreds of houses. He combines his business, home, and hobbies all in this huge 80' x 100' hangar (the road side above).
Here is a frequent sight around Gilbert Airpark ... Ron and his great looking Hawk sport plane. Above left, Ron waves bye as he breaks ground while attending a local flying event. Above center, Ron in his plane. At top right, another one as he circles back overhead after takeoff. Is that your jet stream, Ron?
At top left, a photo of Ron with his very nice Harley Davidson motorcycle. At top right is Ron's latest aircraft, a Piper PA-17 Vagabond. Ron is now training in the Vagabond and plans to work towards his private pilot license in coming months.
Even when Ron is not out working on his regular job, you will usually find him working on some project inside his hangar. He has recently been working on the massive doors for his hangar. Above, Ron is shown at the back of his hangar (the runway side) with door frame in place. He hopes to put the "skins" on the door soon and get it operational. He has also recently installed a fireplace inside.
Ron set 62 trusses in place above the first floor on Sunday, December 23rd and Sunday, December 30th, 2007. That's roughly 2/3's of the trusses he eventually plans to install. Keith (Ron's business assistant), Jimmy, and Randy assisted. Whew ... what a job!
