THE MAY 21 MONTHLY MEETING WILL BE AT  EAA 175 CHAPTER EDUCATIONAL CENTER AND THE MAIN EVENT WILL BE HOSTED BY RYAN MCKEON .

  The meeting of EAA chapter 175 on May 21st 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 May 21st session will test our stick-and-rudder skills, as well as our decision-making.  In the first case study, we'll discuss what happens when the throttle is unreliable and controlling our speed when coming in for landing becomes a problem.  In the second case study ... bird strike!  What options are available to us during this situation, when we have to consider our own safety and the safety of people around and below us.

  That WINGS credit is available for this attendance.  

  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.

  Regards,
  Ryan
