Chapter Meetings

Chapter meetings are usually held at 7:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month in the main downstairs conference room at the Henderson Executive Airport. Meetings are open to the public.

We also usually enjoy an informal dinner at 5:30 p.m. for anyone who wishes to join us. The location is the Black Mountain Grill, 11021 S. Eastern Ave in Henderson.

May Meeting BBQ

The meeting on Wednesday, May 11 will be a barbecue at the home of Robert and Kathleen Jones (4140 Badura Ave, Las Vegas, NV, 89118).

It is near Warm Springs and Valley View (three blocks north of Warm Springs).

The gathering starts at 5:30 pm. We start barbecuing at 6:00 pm.

The chapter will provide hamburgers and hotdogs and, if you're vegetarian, Portabella mushrooms. (We have two members that we know of that are vegetarian, so if you are vegetarian please let us know and we'll make sure we have plenty of mushrooms.)

We will also have potato salad, fruit salad, deviled eggs, chips, and a veggie tray to munch on before the hamburgers are done.

Water, iced tea and soft drinks will also be provided. (If there's anything else that you would like to drink, you're welcome to bring it along.)

We have some chairs, but it would be great if people brought some camping chairs.

If it rains or it's too windy, we have plenty of room and tables to eat inside.

Robert's project is an RV-10 in our bigger garage which is heated and air-conditioned. He now has the canopy on the airplane and has been trying to work on getting the doors and windows done.

See you at the barbecue!

One more reminder. This meeting (as with all of our meetings) is open to the public. You don't need to be a member to attend!

Young Eagles Day 2016 Flying Rides

Again this year, EAA Chapter 1300 will be providing airplane rides for all young persons of ages 8 to 17 years old. Currently we have three dates on our flying schedule:
  • April 9th at the Henderson airport.
    (Here and here are some maps on where to go to register.)
  • June 11th at the Henderson airport.
    (Here and here are some maps on where to go to register.)
  • October 8th at the Pahrump airport.

The rides are being provided by our chapter pilots as a method of introducing young minds to the wonders of aircraft flight. It’s our effort to broaden these youngsters to the future that is there for them in the aeronautical field. A parent or guardian must accompany the future pilot to sign the necessary permission forms. The cost for the ride is nothing. The pilots are offering their time, fuel, and aircraft free of any charges. Normally, each ride will last about 15 to 20 minutes. Providing mother nature cooperates, it will be a nice day for all involved. Start time for rider check-in will be 8:00 AM, and will finalize by 12:00 noon. We hope you'll be able to join us!

Interesting Guest Speaker for March Meeting

This week EAA chapter 1300 has a GREAT Speaker. Our guest speaker this month is the survivor of a mid-air collision on October 23rd 2015. Both planes survived the collision, but landed in different states. Come hear the details of this incredible tale from Bob Henderson. He formerly flew experimental aircraft, but bought a Cessna 310 for multi-engine training. The mid-air collision was between a Cessna 310 and a Piper Arrow. The Arrow landed on a dry lake bed near Primm CA, so the Los Angeles FSDO investigated the incident with the Arrow. The 310 made it back to the Henderson airport so the Las Vegas FSDO investigated the incident with the 310. The operator of the 310 will be our speaker this month. He will have pictures and quite a tale to tell. Come and enjoy his story!

February Meeting Not at Normal Location!

Wednesday's Meeting (February 10th) will be at the home of Chad Hesterman's project, an RV-7A that he is building in his dad's Garage. The address is 896 Moonstone Drive, Boulder City, NV 89005. If you get lost to Chad's dad's house, Chad's phone number is 612-730-9347. The meeting will be at the normal time (7:30pm), and dessert and soft drinks will be provided.

For those who like to gather for dinner before the meeting, we've picked the Boulder Dam Brewing Company at 453 Nevada Hwy, Boulder City, NV 89005. Here is a link to their menu: http://www.boulderdambrewing.com/#!menu/c1q1j We told the restaurant that there will be 15 to 20 of us arriving between 5:00pm and 5:30pm.
