May 22nd 2018 - Tuesday 7:00 PM
Where: Anchorage Air Route Traffic Control Center
For our May monthly meeting we will visit the Anchorage Center but it will be limited to 20 visitors (US citizens only) which must be provided by May 15th. Contact Ed White (907) 230-6332 to get put on the list.
You should arrive 15 minutes before the tour time at 700 North Boniface Parkway (the Center is located prior to the Elmendorf gate on the left side of the road if traveling northbound). Park in the visitor parking lot away from the security gate and proceed to the security gate for processing. While security will be pre-coordinated, all visitors will need to show a government-issued ID which will be compared with the list provided by Ed and will be scanned prior to entering the facility. One of the staff will meet you at the gate and escort you into the facility. Expect a 30 minute intro presentation prior to your tour. No cell phones or photography will be allowed on the actual Operations Control Room. Additionally, no weapons, knives or firearms are allowed on government property.

Join us at Las Margaritas Mexican & Italian Restaurant at 541 W Dimond Blvd (on the north side of Dimond between Arctic and C Streets). When you walk in, turn left into the front room that is separated from the main dining area and we'll be on the right. So come, get your margarita and nachos and we will talk about aviation and maybe do some Chapter business. As always, all Chapter 42 members are invited and encouraged to attend.

Mar 3rd, 2018 - Airframes Alaska
I used to think that a jig was something that you used with or on a tool. I thought that pretty much any tool used with an aircraft could fit in the back of a full-size pickup truck. I thought that a jig would fit in the back of a pickup truck, if not in the cab of the truck. Every CNC machine took up at least 6 feet by 10 feet of floor space, and the mill was at least 10 feet high in the middle.
It was impressive to see the investment that Airframes Alaska put into their shop, from the equipment to people, training, floor space and dedication to quality.
A big thank you to Airframes Alaska.
