President's Message:


Hi everyone

As I write this message at the end of November, we are under a month away from Christmas, and I am two days away from retirement. You can guess what has me more excited; maybe I can FINALLY finish my Bearhawk now, I was afraid that I might surpass our own Phil Johnson's Cozy build time...

Life in the chapter continues. We had our elections last month and now have a new face in charge of Operations: Chris Hepburn volunteered to take it on from John Montgomery who has toiled for many years in that position and for which we all thank him. Chris has temporarily winterized all the chapter lounge windows by fixing/replacing the sills and caulking to stop the water from getting in, but that is only going to get us through until spring. Expect a plea for help to do window work.

Mark C. took on the challenge of getting WiFi to the chapter hangar. He coordinated with the airport's IT consultant, sourced the components, did all of the nerd-work to configure them, and then last Sunday got it all installed and working. We have been trying to do this for YEARS so I'm grateful to Mark for making it happen.

As I said at the last meeting (where we had excellent photo shows of Oshkosh 2022 from a bunch of people) the aviation museum is, in all likelihood, going to invite us back. However, they don't know when. They are short staffed right now so can't predict when they will be able to open up to the public for evening/weekend meetings. I keep in contact with them every so often so I will let you know as soon as we get a thumbs up.

I think that is enough blathering for now. I do wish you and all of your families a very safe, happy, and aviation filled holiday season.

Take care, 



Next General Meeting will be NRC Electric Cessna 337 and will be delivered on Thursday 16th February 2023 at 1900hrs by Zoom.  You should receive an invitation from Mark Richardson prior to the even if you are a Chapter member.

If you are not a chapter member but wish to join in, please contact Mark here.
