DECEMBER 17, 2022 Event will be at EAA 175 CEC.


  • The meeting of EAA chapter 175 on December 17th will feature a VMC club session.  This is a long-standing program run by EAA, which uses scenarios and case studies as the basis for open discussion about aviation and safe and proficient piloting (the scenarios are chosen so that there's never just one possible answer).  It’s also a good excuse to swap flying stories with each other!

    The December 17th session will focus on approaches to landing.  How do we ensure we are in harmony with all other traffic that is en route to the same airfield?  We'll take a look at scenarios which test our decision-making skills for this vital phase of flight, including sharing airspace with large jets, approaching non-towered airfields and landing at night.
    Bring your iPad with Foreflight (or other favorite resource) and your pilot brain along to the session and let’s see how much we can learn from each other.



  •   After the main event we will discuss  chapter business matters with discussions of Aerolite sales status, Chapter annual dinner, Upgrades on CEC workshop bldg. 1300, Calendar schedule of the events for 2023 and any other topics that chapter members wanted to discuss.
