Meeting Minutes for November, 2015

Chapter Members,

We had a fairly good turnout at the meeting yesterday.  The subjects 
discussed were: 1 A suggestion from EAA that we select an "Eagle Flight Leader" in 2016
to coordinate introductory rides for prospective pilots in the community.
And related to that subject, Jim Merryfield pointed out that there is
soon going to be a pilot shortage in the airlines which could mean flying
jobs all down the aviation ladder. 2. Cheryl Bender gave a presentation about the feasibility of creating
an Airport Special District and concluded with the observation that it
would probably be ridiculously difficult. However she did point out that
we could propose to the Board of Supervisors that the Aviation Division
be separated from the Public Works Department. There was quite a
lengthy discussion about the desirability of having County Aviation
as a separate Department. A consensus felt that the best way to
propose this to the Supervisors would be to get all the General
Aviation pilots and the Commercial Aviation interests using the
county airports to write letters to them. Cheryl also presented a
Proclamation of a General Aviation Appreciation Month that we
could present to the Supervisors. 3. As a first step to make General Aviation more visible to the
Supervisors we are encouraged to go to the Aviation Advisory
Committee meeting this Tuesday at 6 PM. I forgot to mention that we will not have a meeting next month
but that the next regular meeting will be in January. Steve

Great Story -- thanks Frank Bush for this contribution


Black Lassic and King Peak 360 views

This is an experiment to see if I can embed sphere videos in this website.  That's me in the pink holding on to a rock to try to lessen my fear of heights which rarely bothers me in an airplane.  My neighbor, Darleene Sampson, took these 360 degree videos.  You can see where the recent fires burned all around Black Lassic and I am blocking the view of Shelter Cove airport on the King Peak video.
