EAA Chapter 284 will hold its August 2016 meeting on Sunday August 14 at 2:30 PM at Red Stewart Airfield (40I). For those who went to AirVenture please be prepared to give reports on your experiences and any workshops or forums that you attended.
I do have some information on the new medical standards that will take effect after the rules are written. In some cases maintaining a Third class certificate for some special issuances will still be necessary.
I attended an interesting workshop on USB charging issues. It seems the Apple and Android devices use different charging protocols for rapid charging. One charger may not work in rapid charge mode for all devices. I picked up a booklet that kind of explains the issues.
Our Taildragger Fly In and Pancake Breakfast will be held on Sunday, September 4, 2016. As small chapter we need all the help we can muster. Ivan recently had shoulder surgery and won’t be able to cook for us this year.
Weather permitting, we are planning on flying Young Eagles again this year. If you haven’t yet confirmed your plans to fly Young Eagles please let me know either by email or at the next meeting.
A flyer for the Fly In is attached. Please share it with all of your friends.
