Coming off of our highly successful Young Eagles Rally in April and looking forward to Oshkosh in just a few months and our own Fly-In shortly after, our May 21st Chapter Meeting will be dedicated to “Volunteerism in Aviation.”
The incredible history of aviation has always depended on the dedication and commitment of ordinary people doing what are extraordinary things. Its continued success is now more than ever dependent upon each of us doing our part. Our chapter is committed to aviation’s growth and volunteerism is clearly the primary way that each of us can make that happen.
So, in order to learn about what others are doing and hopefully to inspire more of us to get involved, we have “volunteered” several interesting speakers this month. Bill and Sophia Shay regularly commit their time volunteering at Oshkosh and will share their experiences with us. And Tony and Robbie DeVergillo are going to share their experience volunteering to help restore and maintain Warbirds. But, these speakers are also extra special in that each of them are also new EAA Chapter 643 members having just joining our Chapter earlier this year.
In addition to a recap on our incredible Young Eagles Rally from Frederick Slapa, we are also going to hear and learn about flying into and out of high altitude airports from Adam Silverstein, fresh off his fascinating trip to Nepal.
Remember, food and social time begins at 6pm, meeting at 7pm at the SkyManor Airport Meeting Room. New members are always welcome.
Our June meeting is planned for the lower hangers at Sky Manor, where we will hopefully bask in sunshine & warm weather and get back to grilling hamburgers.
This month we plan on learning about wheels and tires from our EAA643 Chapter VP Bruce Windom as we head into the summer flying season. So come with your questions and insights into this particularly important topic for all pilots.
We will also be covering other topics including builder updates from some of our newer chapter members.
