Presidents Corner January 2007:


First, I’d like to thank the membership for their expression of confidence in the 2007 slate of officers for

EAA Chapter 1300.  We certainly have big shoes to fill.   I would like to assure the membership that we

will do our best to live up to the high standards set by David Lerner and the rest of the 2006 officers,

directors and volunteers. 


We will start our year with a real treat at the January 10 meeting at the new Henderson facility.  Dean has

arranged for a presentation by USAF Capt. Bly – a predator pilot and trainer from Nellis.  I expect to see

some great video and gain key insights into this unique USAF program.  The February meeting will be at

Boulder City where I hope to discuss our priorities for 2007.  I have a few ideas, but your 2007 officers will

be most interested in input from each of you as chapter members. Please try to attend. 


We face several opportunities and challenges this year.  First, the continued success of our Young Eagles

program has become a legacy priority for Chapter 1300.  It represents a very real contribution to the future

of personal aviation by any American who chooses to take up the challenge. Opportunities to expand these

efforts – especially the ownership of “Discover Aviation - Wings and Wheels 2007” at Jean will continue to

be a priority in my book.  I am also hopeful that we can find ways to include the other end of the age spectrum

(“Bald Eagles”?) with broader exposure to the advantages EAA and the new LSA ratings and equipment.


An urgent set of challenges to our freedom of flight are represented by the first flights ban at VGT.  Talking to

Cecil Johnson at a recent Henderson Hangar Meeting raised concerns that this type of challenge may not be too

far off at Henderson.  We will have our hands full with this and related FAA and non-flying public challenges

to our activities.  I am confident that Chapter 1300 will make a positive contribution as we work together to

expand our freedom of flight in 2007. 



Keep your airspeed up,


Terry Frazier

Chapter President, 2007

Meeting Minutes December 13th 2006:

This will be the last time I write the minutes as secretary for 2006. I want to thank everyone for a great year and look

 forward to serving you as VP in the coming year.

Meeting notes:

The January meeting will be held at Henderson instead of VGT. We have a very special speaker who will talk about

the B-1 and the Predator. To read more go to the Chapters website and click on the link for the January meeting on the

front page. It sounds like it will be an astounding meeting and if you don’t attend you will definitely miss a very informative

and exciting presentation. (We will see/use the new audio/video equipment in the new Henderson airport meeting room).


The December meeting is always the annual ice cream special. All consumables were donated by Jim and Jan Bonelli.

Many thanks to them for a great “meal”. Does anyone know how long they have volunteered to do this??


David Lerner presented EAA “Certificate of Service” awards to board and committee members. We want to thank all those

who made 2006 a very successful and informative year. Also, thank you to all the guest speakers throughout the year for

lots of great information they shared with us.


Last but not least, we celebrated the singing of “Happy Birthday” to our outgoing President, David Lerner.

While not divulging his age,  we all firmly believe he FINALLY turned 41. Thanks David for a great year.

Mike Perger

Mike Smith writes --- Our first Young Eagle Rally of the year will be at the Henderson Executive airport on

Saturday, February 3rd.  I need to start collecting names of volunteers (both flyers and ground support)

who will be available and willing to come out to help.  David Lerner has rounded up about 60 kids so far

and anticipates a few more. 

Please give me an e-mail reply if you can bring a plane and fly and if you can help with ground support. 

I'll call to confirm with more details as I get them from Tom Donaldson and our HND Director Glenn Carlson.

Thanks much!
