EAA Chapter 284 will hold its August 2014 Chapter Meeting on Sunday, August 10, 2014 at 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield. Our agenda will include reports from those who attended AirVenture.
We will also need to finalize plans for our Tail Dragger Fly In and Pancake Breakfast. It will be held on August 31st, Cleaning up the hanger will take place on Saturday, August 30th. We are a small chapter and need all members to participate in order to make this a successful event.
For active pilots please consider flying Young Eagles. The kids look forward to the YE flights and I would hate to disappoint them. Remember that if you are current in the 172 you can fly 3 kids at a time so the cost per YE is actually less than for the Cub or Champ. Frank Boensch from Chapter 382 usually comes down and flies for us in the Champ.
See everybody on Sunday.

The April Meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be held on Sunday April 13, 2014 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield (40I) Waynesville OH.
Brian Cooper will be presenting a demonstration and discussion of practical aircraft fuel alternatives to 100LL. Technical, economic and legal fuel characteristics specific to aviation will be discussed, along with the logistics of on and off airport alternatives to 100LL. Live demonstrations of fuel testing, water contamination, fuel system corrosion and damage will be performed. Whether a 100LL alternative is appropriate for your aircraft or not, you will come away knowing more about your fuel of choice, and the live demonstrations should be entertaining.
Brian has also found a large “hobby shop” near Cincinnati called the Manufactory. Some members may find what they have to offer, such as a 10 ft. break, useful for their projects. Check out their web site at http://www.theManufactory.us/. The Manufactory is located at 12055 Mosteller Rd, Cincinnati, OH. This is just a short distance north of I-275.
