We will meet at Red Stewart Airfield at 2PM August 9th and will be planing for our annual Tail-Dragger Fly-In which will be held Sunday September 6th. Bob Luken will also be bringing the trailer for the kitchen equipment to develop a loading plan. This will enable the chapter to rent the entire kitchen as a means of making money.
Hopefully we can get cooperation from other chapters to conduct a Young Eagle Rally. We will need to look at the sound system requirement for the open house and air show on Saturday as well as Fly In on Sunday. I believe that we have a renter for the hanger. If this works out it will improve our finances.
We are a small chapter so participation by all is necessary to make the Fly In a success. Aviation enthusiast from the are regard the Tail Dragger fly in as one of the best events in the region.
The next meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be Sunday June 14, 2009 at 2 PM. (Location Red Stewart Airfield) Bob Luken will continue his talk about the Stewart Finishing System. He is planning on having several practice panels with. His intent is to have on panel covered through primer and one panel with the fabric just glues and shrunk. Bob is also trying to get a plane owner who recently finished his aircraft with the Stewart System to bring his plane and offer insight on the Stewart System.
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).
