Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter (EAA284) met at a new shop of one of our members today for our May meeting. We had a chance to both work on projects for our chapters ‘rentable kitchen’ and to learn a bit about welding. We enjoyed a beautiful day in Waynesville, Ohio while discussing the summer flying season (and events) in Dick Elliot’s new outbuilding. He has equipment that would be the envy of most experimental airplane builders and the skills to go along with them (lacking for yours truly).
The May meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will take place at 2 PM on Sunday, May 17, 2009 at Dick Elliot’s new workshop on South 4th Street in Waynseville Ohio. Besides working in grill stands for our kitchen equipment, we will be discussion chapter business issues such as Hanger Rent, Dayton Airshow support, Oshkosh/Airventure, Dayton Oshkosh Air-race and Young Eagles will also be discussed. (Directions below and info below)
Just a reminder athe EAA Chapter 48 will host its 53rd Funday Sunday Pancake breakfast and Fly In on Sunday May 3rd 8 AM – 2 PM at Moraine Airpark. Help support Chapter 48.
EAA Chapter 284 will hold its monthly meeting on Sunday April 19, 2009, 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield. No one has come forth with a program for the meeting so we’ll be having a general discussions, show & tell or what ever.
An EAA member pointed out the exhibition and interactive website “America by Air” which is part of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s site and its a good way to spend an hour or two learning some aviation history. In the above photo, the de Havilland DH-4 WWI planes and pilots transported a 400 pound U.S. Mail payload in 13 segments across the country in 28 hours. It must have been an exciting time to be flying taildraggers by the seat of your pants. If you ‘really like grassroots aviation,’ check out the America by Air Exhibition.
EAA 284 meets the second Sunday of every month at 2 pm.
