About thirty members and guests attended last month’s meeting featuring Michael Goulian ( as our guest speaker. What a show! After we had some minor technical difficulties with the video system, Michael provided a very interactive overview of his Aerobatic and Red Bull racing activities. All of it was great, but I really enjoyed his description of speed and operational improvements he has been making to his planes. Thanks to Michael and Rick Duste from Air BP Lubricants (Castrol Aviation Oil) for the presentation and the goodies (2 cases of Oil, Hats, etc.) added to our 50-50 drawing.

Remember that the July and August meetings have been cancelled. We are looking forward to Fred Wilson’s presentation on post crash survival scheduled for the September 10th meeting at Henderson.

Linda and I will be arriving at Airventure on 7/25 and probably staying for the whole week. If you will be there, give us a call (702-278-0273).

Hope to see you there…
