Meeting Minutes for March 19, 2017

Chapter Members,

More rain but we had a reasonably good turnout today anyway.

I relayed Lindsay Locke's good news that she will start flying the Air Force trainer T-6 next month at Vance AFB in Oklahoma.

Al Castaldi said the CAF airplanes will be at the Arcata airport on June 12th, 13th, and 14th. These include the B-17, B-24, B-25 and P-51.

We once more discussed the new medical rules, BasicMed. Another subject come up this past week that we talked about a bit was the proposal to privatize Air Traffic Control and the possibility of cutting funding for TSA which will no doubt affect airline ticket prices.

David Ravetti said the Supervisors have awarded a contract to Volaire Aviation to study the County Aviation Division. They will soon be having public meetings for interested parties (that's us) to provide our comments. So start organizing your thoughts in order to provide meaningful input.

Jim Merryfield talked about the avionics upgrades he is doing to his RV 6. They include adding WAAS GPS and a couple EFIS flight instruments. His comments about the ADS-B that he is installing helped me see some new possibilities for my Long EZ and Skymaster because I have been agonizing over this issue for a couple years. I say agonizing because I am a notorious tightwad.
