Innovation in Flight

Four Chapter Members (Jim Kahle, Bruce Windom, Craig Johnson & Brent Connelly) have been approved to fly to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (Smithsonian) at the Dulles Airport and to put their aircraft on public display on the ramp beside the Museum on Saturday June 16th.  This is one of the premium aviation museums in the world and weather permitting, this should be an incredible day.

Interest was expressed to arrange group transportation for other Chapter members to also visit the Museum for the event, by small bus or other suitable ground transport. Anyone interesting in participating should contact chapter member Joseph Saiia (or call 609-203-6343).  Joe has agreed to help coordinate this effort, so thanks to him for stepping up to do that.  The costs will be shared by all those who participate.

Next Meeting

For our June 18th Chapter Meeting, we will meet at Jerry Cotter's home workshop.  As you’ve heard before, Jerry has an incredible basement workshop and he has graciously agreed to host our chapter on a local field trip for a tour and hopefully some interesting demonstrations.  

Click here and here for video links to give you a flavor of what to expect.

We will meet beginning at 6pm for food & "hangar flying" on Jerry’s backyard patio, before the formal meeting starts at 7pm.  Before moving to Jerry’s workshop, we will also be nominating & voting on our new Chapter Vice-President.

Parking:  If weather is dry, ample parking should be available near his home on the grass.  If wet/raining, there are a few places to park on the left side of the house, but otherwise we’ll ask everyone to park on the road at the bottom of the driveway. 


The event is open to all current chapter members.  New members/visitors are also invited, but I would appreciate being contacted in advance for planning purposes if someone plans to attend for the first time.

This should be a really fun and informative event – we look forward to seeing a great turnout.

Remember, food and social time begins at 6pm, meeting at 7pm.
