October Meeting BBQ
It's that time of year again when we have the Chapter 1300 barbecue at the Henderson Executive airport.
The barbecue will be at Terry Frazier's hanger (E-3).
You can bring whatever you would like to barbecue, whether be it a steak, hamburger or chicken.
We also ask that everyone bring a side dish (or dessert) to share.
Family and friends are welcome.
We also ask that you bring chairs, since we do not have enough.
The club will provide mustard, ketchup, and relish, as well as water and pop.
At the end of the barbecue we need volunteers to help us put away the tables and clean up the hanger and get Terry's and Randy's airplanes back in the hanger.
See everybody October 12th at hanger E-3.
People will be able to start opening the gates about 530pm.
Barbecue grill should be going by 545pm.
If you don't have a gate pass, please contact one of the Chapter officers when you arrive, and someone should be able to let you in.
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!
