Meeting Minutes for October 21

Chapter Members,

We had a good turnout today in spite of the cruddy weather.

There was a fairly brief discussion of the preliminary report done by Volaire, the company who has been conducting a study of the county's aviation infrastructure and operation. Since none of us had read much of it yet I am attaching the three parts of the report and welcome your comments within the next week and a half. I would like to be able to give the Chapter's response to the report in order to insure our concerns are addressed.  (The three-part report can be downloaded in the following post)

Caleb Lesher brought his new boroscope and talked about using it to help analyze the adjustments he is trying out with the sophisticated electronic ignition and fuel injection systems he has on his RV.

New member Aaron Patterson talked about and showed pictures of his project, an RV-10. He is about a year and a half into it and has perhaps a year to go. He was enthusiastic about the quality of the kit.

John Vandermolen is teetering on the brink of starting on an RV-14 project.

Virgil Thompson is continuing the painting (kind of) of his RV-6.

Brian Morrison reported that his recent installation of an ADS-B transponder was successful; so successful that the FAA gave him $500.

We crowded around a couple computers to admire the new camera at KEKA that the chapter paid for and that Hans Koster installed. It was quite useful today since there were three airplanes from Murray Field whose occupants had high hopes that the weather would be good enough for them to get back there after the meeting. They were encouraged by what the camera showed them.

Al Castaldi said there will be a memorial for famous WASP Kay Chaffey at the Vets Hall in Arcata from 2 to 5 PM on November 5. I think I scrambled this announcement a bit last month.

The measure of the success of the meeting is that all the pizza disappeared.

Steve
