December Meeting

There will not be a regular December meeting. Instead we will have a Christmas party on the first Wednesday of the month, 12/7/2022. It will be at the Las Vegas National Golf Club at 1911 Desert Inn Rd. Tickets will be $48 for members and their wives/dates and $50 for anyone else that would like to come.

  • A scale for weighing aircraft
  • A TIG Welder
  • A 30 inch, 3 in 1 shear, brake and roller
  • A Dyna Vibe for Dynamic Balancing a prop

October BBQ

Instead of the regular meeting for October we will be having a barbecue at Carlton Bailey's Hanger (G4) at Henderson Executive Airport starting at 5:00pm on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 instead of the usual 7:00pm. Since gate 15 has been broken for at least a month, access will have to be at the south ramp just past Maverick Helicopters. For those without a Henderson Ramp pass you can call 702-496-8314 or 702-521-1840 when you get to the gate to have someone open it for you. To get to the gate in question, turn off Raiders Way onto Executive Terminal Drive. Then turn right at on to Jet Stream Drive, which will be the first right. Jet Stream Drive will curve left, then right. Continue past Maverick Helicopters straight ahead to the gate and call 702-496-8314 or 702-521-1840.

The chapter will provide Soft Drinks, Water, Paper Plates, Plastic Silverware, Ketchup, Mustard, Mayo, Relish, Lettuce, Tomatoes and Pickles. If you need a Steak Knife please bring it. You provide whatever kind of meat you would like and a dish to share. There will be a grill there to cook whatever you wish to bring.

There will be no business meeting or program. We may prepare a short announcement about how we did at the two Young Eagles Rally's we have done since the last month. This is a chance to socialize with the rest of the chapter members and get to know people better. We look forward to seeing you all there!

July Meeting

We would like to remind everyone that the July meeting will be on Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at 7:00 PM at the Henderson Executive Terminal.

There will be no pre-meeting dinner this Wednesday because only 3 people showed up for the last one. We would like to have a discussion about this at the meeting to see if there is still interest in doing it.

We are also going to have a discussion about possibly using EAA1300 funds to pay part of the fuel costs for Young Eagles flights.

Our chapter secretary Robert Bernard will be doing the program as outlined below. Robert has taught classes on this subject and we would like him to share some information that will be useful to the membership.

Come learn about trusts, estate planning, and asset protection from our very own EAA Chapter Secretary Robert Bernard. He has been personally using trusts for over a decade and teaches a class on the subject. Robert will talk about why trusts are so powerful, the three types of trusts you want to have, how a trust can provide asset protection and limit your liability if done correctly, and much more. He will teach the questions to ask your attorney and talk about how attorneys can steer you wrong. Robert loves this subject and is happy to share his knowledge.

We'll see you on Wednesday!

May BBQ

We would like to remind everyone that our next meeting will be the May barbecue on next Wednesday May 11, 2022. Claudio Ponte has generously volunteered to have it at his house which is at 471 Serenity Point Drive, Henderson, NV 89012 at 5:00pm to about 8:00pm. Please email Robert Jones if you are planning to attend with how many will be attending so that we can plan our food arrangements adequately. We will be providing another update to tell you how to deal with the gate security for the Barbecue.

February Meeting

We would like to remind everyone that there will be an EAA1300 meeting at Henderson Airport at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, February 9, 2022 at Hangar G4. Access to the ramp can be had by calling 702-496-8314 or 702-521-1840 at Gate 15, just before you get to Maverick Helicopters. The gate was back in working order today, and hopefully it will still be working on Wednesday.

There will be the usual pre meeting dinner at Giuseppe's at 5:00pm, which is at 2630 Horizon Ridge Parkway, Henderson, NV 89052 for those that would like to attend. Please email Robert Jones if you plan on attending so he can give Giuseppe's the number of people to plan for.

The agenda for Wednesday includes Service Awards from the National Headquarters. We still have a few left that never got passed out from the previous president.

Under New Business we would like to talk about plans for our next Young Eagles event. We have usually done one in the spring and one in the fall. Lets talk about where, when, and who our partners might be.

Wednesday is forecast to be in the low 70's for the high and dropping to the high 40's overnight so wear a coat. Since there are now only 5 states left with a mask mandate by their state governor, perhaps we will be able to use the meeting room in the terminal before long.

The agenda for Wednesday includes Service Awards from the National Headquarters and a visit from Allen McKinney from the FAA FAASTeam (Aviation Safety Team). Allen would like to meet with the Chapter Membership for a meet and greet and offer to provide the chapter some aviation safety programs that he has available.
