of our facility. Our driveway is located on the right just before
the "hammer head" turn-around at the west end of Eisenhauer Drive.
Join us for dinner before the meeting.
At this time
we are not sure what our main dish will be for the dinner before the
May meeting. If you would like to volunteer to provide a main dish
for one of our monthly meetings, please
Contact Phil. Expenses incurred in providing the main dish are
reimbursed by the Chapter.
Members are asked to please bring a complimentary
dish to pass such as a side dish, salad, dessert or whatever!
dinner typically costs only $5 which includes one beverage, your
meal and a healthy dose of hangar flying and other nonsense. It is a
nice way to get to know more about our members.
Bring your friends.
May 19th Program:
Our guest speaker this
Earl Luce who as one of Chapter 44's Technical Counselors is a very
respected aircraft homebuilder, is often featured giving builder
tips on the EAA's website, received the EAA's 2009 Tony Bingelis
Award and can often be heard speaking at one of AirVenture's
seminars. This month Earl will be sharing with us the
software program that has become so popular among pilots on their
iPads, iPhones and iPods. It is not available on Android devices.
He'll also detail its many features as well as how it works with the
Stratus 2 device which allows the display of real time
weather and traffic information. Corporate pilots often prefer to
use this program over the supposedly more sophisticated equipment in
their panels. While aircraft still make use of the old steam gauges,
programs like this can make flying a lot safer and more enjoyable.
