From Our Chapter President:Hello Everyone,
This past Saturday our Chapter hosted a Young Eagles day and our first ever Young Eagles Workshop. The turnout was truly impressive, with over 100 people in attendance. I want to thank all of the volunteers and pilots who helped make this one of our best Chapter events yet. The Young Eagles Workshop events will be held throughout the year with the next one being scheduled in celebration of International Young Eagles day on June 10th.
This month our Chapter activities will continue as we host a pancake breakfast and Chapter presentation on the third Saturday of the month. We also have a Chapter Flyout to Borrego Valley Airport planned for the 4th Saturday.
Our Chapter will be having a special event on the 5th Saturday of the month. We will host a free Chapter member appreciation lunch. Why not take this opportunity to come down to the Chapter?
I would like to remind everyone that Chapter applications for the 2023 Ray Aviation scholarship will continue throughout this month. I encourage our Chapter members to consider nominating a young person for the scholarship.
Next month our Chapter will participate in the inaugural EAA Learn to Fly week May 15th to the 20th. This program aims to educate and inspire adults to learn to fly. It also includes an Eagle flight. We will be hosting the Flying Start event at the Chapter on May 20th.
We are working on beginning a monthly builder's workshop program at the Chapter. We need volunteers with aircraft building skills to make presentations about their experiences in building aircraft. Passing along knowledge and experience to fellow members and new builders is truly what the EAA is intended to be. To help make people comfortable, the presentations will be informal and I encourage everyone to participate.
Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our Chapter.
We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.
We hold monthly membership meetings on the third Saturday each month at 10:00AM.
On meeting days, we serve breakfast in the hangar from 8:00 to 9:30AM, waffles or pancakes, eggs and sausage for $4.00
Meetings start at 10:00AM with a brief discussion of chapter business, followed by a guest speaker. Most programs are eligible for WINGS credit.
We hold monthly Young Eagle Rallies on the second Saturday each month at 9:00AM.
