The 2022 Taildragger Fly In is almost here.
EAA 284 TDFI Preparation
Date: September 3 & 4, 2022
Place: Red Stewart Airfield (40I)
The fly-in will be held on Sunday, September 4th with set-up on Saturday the 3rd as is our usual practice.
Tim and I have purchased the non-perishable food items. We have a new banner promoting the Pancake Breakfast.
For set up on Saturday please try to arrive by 10 am so that we can get the work done and out of the way. The Stewarts will have their annual Air Show at 5 PM and there will be a concert with the Repeating Arms at 7 PM. There will be food trucks on the field in the afternoon and evening.
When Van’s Aircraft announced its first high-wing model, the RV-15, at AirVenture 2021, many in the experimental aircraft community were understandably shocked. The company had traditionally designed low-wing models only. On Monday, July 25, 2022, Van’s brought the aircraft out for public display at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.

REMINDER! Social time before the chapter meeting!
If you would like, feel free to bring snacks or drinks to share.
The next chapter meeting will be on Sunday, June 12th at 2:30 pm. As the weather will be warm we will meet at the hanger.
- Completion of the PedalPlane project. I have proposed moving the project to my hanger at Moraine Airpark. Plenty of space, electricity and tools.
- Speakers for future meetings. Several possible speakers have been suggested in previous emails.
Additional items of interest.
The next chapter meeting will be on Sunday, May 8th at 2:30 pm. If the weather is favorable we will meet at the hanger. I know that in May, we usually meet on the 3rd Sunday so that members can enjoy Mother’s Day with family. I hope this change does not inconvenience anyone too severely.
With our Learn to Fly Day coming on the 21st, I think that the extra week will be needed. We have several banners to put up and discuss the logistics of the day. I have contacted several other organizations for participation. There is interest but no firm commitments. I have registered the event with EAA as a Learn to Fly and Young Eagles event and obtained the necessary insurance coverage. I also have also obtained EAA material relative to both events.
