Van’s Aircraft debuts new design at AirVenture 2022

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.


EAA284 Chapter Meeting May 8 2022

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.
