Next Planned Chapter Meeting - April 19, 2020 - Gilbert Airpark (SC45) - 1:00-4:00pm

      Our next chapter meeting is planned for Sunday, April 19th, 2020 in Ron Angerman's hangar at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) beginning with lunch at 1:00pm. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unsure at this point whether we'll be having a meeting in April, or any other upcoming month, until the crisis has subsided. Thus, we have not decided on the lunch menu yet. Check below about a week before the meeting for further details. We'll be following EAA guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, which you can find by CLICKING HERE.

     If we have an April meeting, we plan to have the ADS/B presentation first by FAAst representative, Mr. Tony Burgess, which we had planned for the March 15th meeting. Tony flies a Gulfsteam corporate jet, and he had been called by his boss to fly the weekend of March 15th, so he would not have been able to make the presentation anyway. However, Tony notified me that he has requested a "firm date" off for this April 19th weekend, so hopefully he can make it this time, as we hope we all can. As most of you already know, Sun-N-Fun has been postponed until May 5th through 10th, 2020, if it can even be held then.

     We wish to especially acknowledge and thank Al Strickland for his generous donation to our chapter of a very nice Sharp Aquos 65" TV, a new remote control device, and 25' cable with various attachments. Ron and Randy just finished installing it, and it looks and sounds great. Also, thanks to Dave Hardy for donating a ROKU HD device, which combined with Ron's in-hangar WIFI setup, gives us an "internet streaming" capability and essentially turns the TV into a "smart TV". So, now it's ready for Tony's ADS/B presentation. See a photo of the installation in the NEWS section of this website.

     We'll hold our business meeting immediately after Tony's presentation. We invite all members and guests to attend our business meeting, but we realize that some of you may not be interested in attending, so if you choose to leave after lunch, we'll understand. We'll cover minutes of the February meeting, a financial report, and other pertinent chapter business. We may have some good news about rstarting our Young Eagles program. If we have enough times, we may also show the March edition of EAA video magazine, which is about 15 minutes long.

     VMC coordinator, Larry Philbin, has notified me that the chapter VMC meeting will be held immediately after the chapter business meeting ends.

NOTE: We've now finished reviewing all 7 DVDs of the "Sporty's Instrument Rating Course" in the terminal building at 6J0. If you wish, you may check out the "backup copies" of the course, which are in the individual plastic cases. The originals are in a plastic magazine in the lockbox too. but we ask that you not remove those from the terminal building. You may view them in the terminal building as often as you like. However, that's our only copy, so if one goes missing or is damaged, we no longer have a viable course.  For a complete description of the course, click here.
