Next Chapter Meeting - February 16, 2020 - Gilbert Airpark - 1:00-3:00pm

      Our February chapter meeting will be held on Sunday, February 16th, 2020 in Ron Angerman's hangar at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) beginning with lunch at 1:00pm. The theme for lunch will be "Soups & Valentines Desserts", so we request that you bring your favorite soup and dessert recipes to share with others. Planned food items will be listed below. If you can bring something, please let Randy know, and he will post it below, along with your name.

     We'll be discussing our recent BRONZE level chapter award from EAA for 2019 and the 10 point criteria which EAA has established for earning points towards awards, which are at the bronze, silver, and gold levels. We're also hoping to discuss the chapter surveys that you sent in towards the end of 2019, if they are available by then. We also purchased a Pilot Workshops course titled the "Airmanship Series" recently, so we'll likely be showing one of the videos from that series as a safety presentation, which we estimate will take 15 minutes or less. We again thank Bud Coward for his recent donations to our chapter, which contributed substantially to our chapter treasury. In addition, we'll be covering any significant recent happenings. Remember that the Sun-N-Fun Fly-in is scheduled earlier this year than usual from March 31st - April 5th, so it's not too early to begin making your plans. If you are interested in sharing a campsite in a travel trailer or pop-up camper at that event, get in touch with Randy.

     We had planned to have an ADS/B presentation by a local FAA representative at this February meeting. However, he was unable to attend this month due to other commitments. However, Don Schmotzer has made arrangements with him to come to our March meeting, make a presentation, and answer your ADS/B questions, so plan to attend that upcoming important presentation..

     The chapter VMC meeting will be held immediately after the regular chapter meeting. VMC Coordinator, Larry Philbin, Larry will be sending out an email regarding that meeting soon.


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.
