EAA284 Meeting Sunday August 14 2011

EAA Chapter 284 will meet Sunday August 14, 2011 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield (40I)

We will need to spend part of the time checking our inventory of supplies for the Taildragger Fly-In scheduled for September 4, 2011. I would also like to spend some time talking about Young Eagles opportunities.

We usually schedule Young Eagle flight in conjunction with the Fly-In and that is the plan for this year. For each Young Eagle that we fly we receive a $5 credit to be used towards purchasing some item that can be used in our YE program. In the past we have purchased both tables and chairs. This year we still have $115.00. I am going to suggest a straight leg pop-up canopy. One note, in order to be eligible for the $5 credit the pilot needs to fly 10 Young Eagles. So if one pilot flies 10 and two pilots fly 5 each we will only receive credit for the 10 flown by the one pilot. So far this year I have flown 21 Young Eagles.

For this year’s TDFI Young Eagle rally I hope that all of our pilots who are currently flying will take some time to fly kids this year. I know that some pilots only fly either the Cub or the Champ. If you can fly either the 150 or the 172 consider renting that for the Young Eagle rally. Of course, if you have your own plane please consider fly on Sunday. The Young Eagle rally will be scheduled from 10 AM – 2 PM. Although this is a 4 hour period you will actually fly about 2 hours or less during this time period. I would like to bring my plane down to use, but I have a logistical problem in getting both my plane and food and things to the airport. I would like to fly down a few days early and leave my plane at Waynesville. I will need someone to drive me back to Dayton to get my car. Anytime a few days early will work for me. Continue reading
