President's Message:

EAAWell, the Christmas trees are down, the lights stowed in a box, and the dead of winter is upon us. In fact, as of this writing (mid-January 2022) there is an extreme cold warning in effect for the Ottawa area and surrounds. Tell me again why I live here ?

Like many, I hang up my headset at the beginning of winter and don't pull it out again until at least most of the snow is gone. The main reason is that I don't have skis for my Maule and I keep the airplane at my short home strip (although I can't say I really enjoy freezing my nether regions off in the cockpit either.) That being said, I look up in envy at those of you who brave the cold and snow and go out to enjoy both the clear air and enhanced performance you get this time of year. In fact, I have decided to make/buy skis for my scratch built Bearhawk 4place when it is done and join you. One of the major motivators for that is Mo's Flyin on the Ottawa River in Feb. I have always threatened to go because it looks like fun (well, that and I like chili....) I also look forward to keeping my flying skills, if not sharp, then not degraded. I'm always a bit tentative on those first couple of flights in the spring dusting off the cobwebs.

EAA

In the meantime, I'll labour away on my Bearhawk so I can schedule a pre-cover inspection this summer. Next winter will be spent covering the fuselage and control surfaces, with paint to follow in warmer times. I won't get to eat Mo's famous chili this year or next, but I sure hope I will the one after that.
