August regular/breakfast meeting -- Thanks so much to friend-of-the-Chapter Tim Haley of the Greensboro FAASTeam for joining us. The aircraft maintenance-related presentation was well received. And thanks to the breakfast crew and other volunteers for setting up, providing breakfast, and tearing down. Volunteers make our wonderful organization function.

July regular/breakfast meeting -- Thanks so much to Iris Yang for a wonderful presentation on the Flying Tigers, and for sharing her inspiration for writing three fictionalized books on the topic, as well as her personal story on living in and leaving China during a dark time in history.

Thanks to all the pilots and other volunteers who made the YE event at KTTA on 6/3 a success -- Saturday was a beautiful day for aviation, and our YE event flew over a hundred kids! 

We're returning to breakfast at 8am -- During the winter as we returned to more consistent in-person meetings for our "regular" meeting on the third Saturday of each month, we were meeting a little later. With spring here, and with more organized programs, it's time to get back to earlier meetings. Breakfast will be served at 8am, and the meeting program with start around 9am. Please join us!

Final YE Rally for 2022 -- Thanks to Rick Mestler and a fine crew of volunteers for making the final Young Eagles Rally for the year a success. Weather turned in our favor after a visit from TS Nichole, and we were able to fly 75 happy kids at the Henderson-Oxford Airport (KHNZ).

Many thanks to Tim Misegades and the fine folks at the GE jet engines plant in Durham - 30ish members of the Chapter had a great tour of the plant on Aug 20th. It's absolutely amazing to see how the most sophisticated jet engines on the planet are built!

Thanks to those who participated in the Young Eagles rally on June 25th at Raleigh Exec. 68 kids flown!

We had a great turnout for our Saturday March 19th and April 16th meetings at the Cox Aerodrome, thanks to all who came out to get the band back together, and thanks specifically to the various aircraft builders who presented photos and current state of their project. Vans, Rans, Just, Pitts, and even the Ryan Co. were well represented. We're looking forward to hearing from other Chapter builders in the future!
