George also asks if you know any young eagles 8-17 that would like to fly that they contact him, Buddy, or Jimmy well before the fly-in.
If you have not seen the meeting room in the last month: You need to see it. Thanks so much to Francie & Ralph, Homer, and so many others for all the fine work they have done in the hanger.
A reminder:If you can please contribute to the building fund to help cover costs.
The Bamboo Bomber should be here:http://www.cessnat50.org/
It will also be a Young Eagles event so we need to be set up by 8am. Sponsors are needed. Contact George for more info.
There will be a painting party after the February meeting. BYOB (Bring your own brush). Ralph will need help removing old ceiling tiles and insulation, if you can help please call him.
Congratulations to Nate and Leah for receiving the 2012 Spirit of Haughton award. They will be leaving us after February as Nate is becoming a Spirit/Beak/B-2 pilot.
Our march meeting might be held in Hugh H’s hanger, more on this next month.
We had 31 members and 3 visitors this month, a great showing!
Please see this link for details and pictures. Contact Walter Cook.
George asks anyone who ordered a t-shirt to please buy it. The chapter has a lot of t-shirts left from the spring fly-in.
Bob Knighton and Hugo Holland showed their RV-9A they have been building the past 5 years. Along with Dave Fortuna, Todd Mallory, and Carlos Brown and a few helpers, they put in over 2200 hrs finishing the partially built plane. Over 1000 hrs was put in to painting the aircraft. The glass cockpit has a Dyen pfd along with 2 GPS’s and a ham radio-APRS (automatic pos. reporting) so anyone can track the AC anytime it flies. Primary flight testing showed a top speed of 200 mph IAS and Hugo says she flies like a dream.
