EAA284 Meeting April 11 2010

The April 2010 meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be held on 2 PM Sunday, April 11, 2010 at Red Stewart Airfield (40I), Waynesville, OH. This meeting was originally scheduled as Fly Out/Drive Out meeting at the Champaign Aviation Museum at Grimes Field in Urbana. Because most of our members have elected to go to Grimes Field to assist with the B-25 gathering on April 16-19 it made little sense to make two trips to Urbana in the period of one week. At our meeting on Sunday we will discuss our possible participation in International Learn To Fly Day on Saturday, May 15, 2010. Hopefully we can work with the Stewarts to have members available to talk about flying, building and give Young Eagle Rides.

EAA284 meeting: Brian Cooper aircraft designing

eaa284_brian_cooper100110Brian Cooper, one of our chapter members is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s Aerospace Engineering program and spent a couple hours with his Powerpoint display and CAD drawings discussing his new aerobatic airplane design.  The design utilizes advance composite technology to achieve the goal of reducing weight and increasing strength to enhance the performance of a bi-wing aerobatic aircraft. The three areas where his design differs from most of the current biplanes is in the engineering and construction of the “D” wing leading edge, lack of strut supports as well as firewall forward weight reduction based on a relatively new lightweight engine choice. eaa284_briancooper2_100110His currently CAD based project is based on research and testing during hands-on projects during his years at  UC, but is being constructed as a one off project in is shop. During the next few years, we’ll hopefully have the opportunity to see his design under construction and perhaps even be in on some flight testing. Thank you Brian for enlightening  us.

Several inches of snow are forecast for Thursday, so perhaps the Cub will be on skis.
