February Meeting Minutes

At the meeting yesterday we discussed the CAFE 2015 conference 
which is featuring all things concerning electric airplanes. I pushed
my recent interest in cheap ADS-B equipment for experimental
aircraft, hoping there will be more in the near future. We were able
to get a few donations to further Lindsay’s flying future. If you
haven’t heard, she has been accepted to Air Force flight school
when she graduates from college. Cheryl suggested that we might
put an airplane ( or part of one ) in Fortuna’s parade around Rodeo
time. And of course there was pizza.

Very Short Takeoff with Zenith 750

I thought you might like to see an example of the Zenith 750 in action.  That's the airplane that I'm building.  Takeoff distance is listed as 100 feet and landing is 120 but with a brisk headwind, the wheels rotate maybe once as you can see in the video.  -- Cheryl


Meeting Minutes -- January 17, 2015


Chapter Members,

We held our biennial elections today for chapter 
officers, President, Vice President, Treasurer, and
Secretary. In a highly unusual move, Al Castaldi
stepped forward as a candidate for each of the
positions, and even more astonishing, he was
elected by acclamation to all of the offices. By
comparison the rest of the business was fairly
routine. We discussed airplane gossip and the
politics of the county as regards to aviation. Steve
