Marie asks Dave for a treasurer’s report, which he provides.
Tom updates the Zing project - the engine’s been started but it needs work. The engine’s been removed and sold. Jim DuFriend has the wings and is going to be making repairs to the wings to get them airworthy.
Oshkosh - Tom is flying his Bonanza to OSH. Colin Perry is coming along. Ken Rice is flying his Lancair there. John Trautschold is driving there.
John did a quick presentation on his Velocity construction project and answered a few questions. Will answer more questions after the meeting. John's construction website is http://trautschold-velocity-xl.com.
Steve Vaught takes over to discuss Young Eagles and starts with an brief history of his flying career. Some of his former YE’s have become pilots and are now flying commercially.
Steve wonders if we’ve gotten too big - trying to do smaller events and even one-on-one events throughout the year. Also, the EAA has been experimenting with pre-registration. People get a time and aircraft to fly. This EAA software is available to all Chapters. People just sign up and get a booking.
There is a new EAA website just for YE - youngeagle.org. We’re looking at doing the event on June 9th which is the 2018 International Young Eagle Day. Would like to keep registration around 50.
One choke point is photos - instead of us doing the photos we just let the parents or even the kids take their own selfies.
Meeting ends at 8:00 pm.
EAA Chapter 810 Secretary
To say that our latest fly out was a success would be an understatement! We had a total of 16 people attend yesterday's luncheon at Deer Valley Airport (KDVT). We had beautiful weather for the trip with a total of six airplanes trekking over to Deer Valley. A great time was had by all! We hope that you'll consider joining us again next month for another trip. More details to come, but plan on the first Wednesday of May most likely for breakfast. See the attached photos!
