EAA Chapter 284 will hold its February 2022 chapter meeting on Sunday, February 13, 2022, at 2:30 PM. The meeting will be held in the office at Red Stewart Airfield (40I), Waynesville, OH. The weather for Sunday is currently forecast to be sunny with temperatures to be in the upper 20’s. Should the weather turn out to be worse than forecast, an email message will be sent by 11 AM.
Pedal Plane Update.
Mike reports that he receive the J3 kit from PedalPlanes a few days ago. He will be bringing the kit to the meeting for our inspection. This of course would be the ideal time to make a plan for assembling and painting the kit. We will need to discuss how to raise money with the finished kit. Raffle, outright sale or something else.
Tim and I have rough cut a second Pedal Plane project. It took us roughly 2 hours. Now it needs to be trimmed to the finished dimensions on a router table. We would need a warm place to set up the router table and do the final trimming. I would anticipate that this might take another 2 hours.
We approved a committee to plan this project. We need to actually form the committee, select a date, do the logistics and plan for additional activities. We do our pancake breakfast in conjunction with our Fly-In and the Stewart’s open house.
I would suggest that we do the spaghetti dinner on Saturday, May 21, 2022. This is EAA’s learn to fly day. We might try Young Eagles flights in the morning. Perhaps the Stewarts will be willing to provide introductory flights in the afternoon. Maybe they would also offer flights in their Stearman. The goal would be to get a bit of publicity and activity at the airport. The dinner would then be in the late afternoon.
Sunday, May 21, 2022 is EAA’s Learn TO Fly Day. EAA has announced that any chapter that hosts a Flying Start event on May 21, or any day during the month of May, will receive two free weekly passes for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022!
