Presidents Corner:
During the business meeting, we resolved the need for a secretary when Seb Trost volunteered to fill the position. We acknowledged and accepted his offer and confirmed his position by the attending members. Since his appointment, he has written and sent the minutes to Randy Holland, our webmaster, for publishing on our website.

August's meeting was held at the terminal where four of us, who attended Oshkosh, presented information and pictures of what we saw, attended, and experienced along the way. One item that I was impressed with was a piece of flight safety equipment called a “Virtual HUD”. You can take a look at it and see how it works along with the safety possibilities it offers at the following website.

With the Young Eagles rally taking place at Overton on September 19th, Mike Smith, who coordinates the pilots, is now looking for pilots who can confirm attendance. Typically we gather at 8:00 am, have a pilot briefing on where to fly and ground procedures during the event. Also confirmed is the October 3rd Young Eagles rally for Pahrump. You can contact Mike Smith for either event to confirm availability to fly YE’s. Mike can be reached via email at or call him at 702-565-4010. (Please note, this is a new email address for Mike.)

September’s meeting will be held at the HND terminal with a presentation on metal working. We will show you techniques and invite your input on processes such as drilling, deburring, fluting and dimpling. A “how to” on metal stretching, shrinking, and proper bending techniques. If you are contemplating building a metal airplane, this will go a long way in easing concerns or fears. The demo will take place after the business meeting in Terry Frazier’s hangar (E3).
