November 28th 2017 - Tuesday 7:00 PM
Where: The Medallion Foundation
Our November meeting will be held at the Medallion Foundation at 1520 N Post Road.
The Medallion Foundation's Aviation Training Devices and Simulators provide student pilots and certificated pilots the opportunity to practice scenario-based training, emergencies, off-airport operations and other flight operations BEFORE stepping into a cockpit.
During the November meeting Medallion staff will provide an overview of their programs and simulators and will allow us to try out some of the simulators. The sims can be configured for different AC types and models so the same sim could be SE, ME, recip, or turbine just by changing throttle quadrants. The sims can be used for IFR practice or VFR terrain procedures in variable wx conditions. A big benefit is flying the mountain routes/passes in your type AC for terrain familiarization. Or you could let your imagination go wild. How cool would it be to fly Merrill Pass in a P-51 or TBM Avenger.
Come to the meeting and give it a try.
Additionally, we will hold our annual officer elections.

Sep 26th, 2017 - September 2017 Meeting at Chaz Aero
Our September meeting was at Chaz Aero Aircraft Painting located at 2150 E. 5th Ave. Lee Claussen showed us the new paint shop recently built at Merrill Field.
This is a modern state of the art facility that turns your normal concepts upside down. This is an aircraft painting facility, but there isn't a paint booth! The whole hangar is the painting area.
Aug 6th, 2017 - Chapter Officer Elections - Soliciting Nominees
This November EAA Chapter 42 will be electing new officers for the following positions for a two year term:
A Nominating Committee has been appointed consisting of Tim Coalwell, Lars Gleitsmann and Rick Henry. The committee has canvassed the current officers to see if they wish to run again for either their current position or another officer position. Anyone that is a current member is encouraged to express their interest to the committee and request to be nominated. The Bylaws relating to elections are here.
Bernie has specifically suggested that we encourage others to step up and request to be nominated for these officer positions to “keep things fresh, get new blood, new ideas, etc.” PLEASE help us keep a lively Chapter by adding your participation. Our Chapter is only as good as its members and only as active as its membership. If you, or another member you know would like to step up, or are even considering stepping up for a position, please either email or call us.
