Meeting Minutes for February 18, 2017 

Chapter Members,

At the meeting yesterday Al Castaldi informed us that Ray Wickel died a week ago surrounded by his family. Ray had been a member of the chapter since its beginning and had supported many of its projects.

Al also said that the Collings Foundation is planning to bring their WWII era airplanes to the Arcata airport in early June. There will be a need for volunteers before and during the event.

Miles Mackey passed around photos of memorable airplanes and personalities of his past. Miles always has good stories.

We discussed again a few of the details of the new FAA medical scheduled to go into effect in May, BasicMed. In several details it will significantly decrease the medical requirements for personal flying. There will be a greater emphasis on "self certification".

Jib Ray filled us in on his project. It has begun to overflow his garage.

George Jutila read some "Rules of Flying" that all had the ring of truth. An example: "Some pilots know that when they get in the airplane, it will be their last flight. Some don't."
