Discover Aviation Day 2019
It was a great day!
Wonderful turnout, and the weather did nothing but improve.
Over 100 Young Eagles flown.
Thank you to all our volunteers, and thanks to all who shared these photos.
Our January 2019 meeting featured guest speaker Radek Wyrzykowski,
EAA's Manager, Flight Proficiency
Radek gave an excellent presentation on the global success of the VMC/IMC Club which he founded in 2010. It was interesting to learn how these clubs work and how to form one. Our chapter is now working to form a club locally. These IMC/VMC clubs are designed to help pilots improve their proficiency by working through real-world IMC/VMC scenarios.
IMC = Instrument Meteorological Conditions - Flying on instruments alone.
VMC = Visual Meteorological Conditions - Flying looking out the window.
Our September 2018 - Flyro Gyro
The event was a great success.
The weather was beautiful and we were able to fly around 70 Young Eagles.
Thanks to all our pilots and volunteers who helped to make this a great day at our local airport.
Lots of smiling faces!
Our September 2018 meeting featured Tony Hurst (CFII / DPE)
