February 18th Program:
The program for our February
meeting will be presented by EAA Chapter 44 member Kyle Mullen. It
is titled, "BOGEY DOPE, lessons from behind the radar scope."
Kyle Mullen spent over 20 years in the US Air Force as an Air Battle
Manager controlling military aircraft and conducting Air Defense
missions, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. After attending a
workshop presented by NORAD at Air Venture 2019, he realized there
is a lot of information General Aviation and Sport Aviation
enthusiasts may not understand about flying in and around Special
Use Airspace and FAA-directed Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR)
areas. In addition to ground based radar assignments, he has over
2,500 hours in the E-3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS)
aircraft encompassing work with nearly all FAA sectors in the United
States. His final operational duty was in Washington DC, where he
served as a Tactical Coordinator in the Joint Air Defense Operations
Center, integrating aerospace control and warning actions in the TFR
around the nation's capital. He will share his experiences and
lessons learned on how to be aware of military airspace and, more
important, how to avoid being intercepted by NORAD and/or Law
This is a great chance to meet and get to know Kyle who recently
joined Chapter 44.
