Next Chapter Meeting - February 16, 2020 - Gilbert Airpark (SC45) - 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. In celebration of Valentine's Day weekend, the theme for lunch will be "Hearty Soups & Lovely Desserts", so we request that you bring your favorite soup and/or dessert (especially Valentine themed) 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 bronze, silver, and gold level awards. We have several money matters which we need to discuss relating to this year's upcoming fall fly-in. We also purchased a Pilot Workshops course titled the "Airmanship Series" recently, from which we may select and show one or more videos in the future and 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. Prior to the business meeting, we plan to show the EAA chapter video for February, 2020, which is only about 11 minutes long, and has some interesting tidbits on the EAA chapter awards, the latest Rotax engine, and a "single wire" safety wiring tip.

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

     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.
