EAA CHAPTER 12 GATHERING CALENDAR

We will have our September Monthly Gathering on Thursday the 10th from 7-8:30 PM at the Lone Star Flight Museum. Please use the entrance on the NW Side of the Building. We will be practicing social distancing and wearing masks. If you do not feel well or feel at risk, we look forward to seeing you at a later Gathering. This month's program will be EAA news, a presentation by LD Stevenson on the impact of High Density Altitude on our aircraft, and the VMC Club discussion topic. See you there.

Although we mostly meet at Lone Star Flight Museum (LSFM) at Ellington Airport, but sometimes we meet at other locations to provide a more diverse hands-on experience, so please watch the notices carefully.  The Chapter will also have occasional technical and social events on the weekends and other nights.  Feel free to recommend, give or host meetings or events.

Immediately following our General Meeting is our monthly VMC Club discussion.

Looking forward to seeing you again and talking about aviation next Thursday or in a future meeting.

NEXT YOUNG EAGLES RALLY

INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT of NEXT YOUNG EAGLE'S RALLY. The next Young Eagle's Rally at the Lone Star Flight Museum (LSFM) had been indefinitely postponed. This decision was based on concern for our participants, volunteers and pilots as well as the current National and State guidelines.

Future Meetings:

The October meeting will be on October 8th from 7-8:30 pm at the Lone Star Flight Museum and our Virtual Guest Speaker will be Brad Dement founder of eMagAir.  He will discuss their breakthrough Electronic Ignition that is widely used in experimental aircraft. (When Lycoming is willing to install your Electronic Ignition on their Thunderbolt Line of custom engines at the factory -- that's a breakthrough.)

November 12th our Guest Speaker will be Lance Little of the Houston FAAST (FAA Safety Team).

Please contact us if you have an idea for a topic and or a location!

VMC/IMC Clubs

The VMC club meeting will be immediately after the chapter meeting. Please feel free to join us as I am sure we will have another lively discussion around this month's video topic.

Upcoming “Local” Events

The Lone Star Flight Museum has reopened as a part of Texas' phased approach with periodic cleaning/sanitizing and the hands-on experiences and exhibits will not be available. Full details are listed on their website.
