Oct 26th, 2021 - Dominion Propeller visit

Noah Allsup--son of owner, Jerry Allsup--did an outstanding job discussing all things propellers and thoroughly fielding our many questions. He gave an overview of the company, sharing that Dominion is Alaska's only full-service airplane propeller shop. Noah explained details about the propeller types that Dominion typically service, their repair processes, and machinery at Dominion. He has a deep knowledge of propeller manufacturers' product evolutions since the 1970's. He conveyed well the excellent quality of work and service, a core value of the company.

It was a pleasure to visit Rodger Nicholls KR-2 project. He has worked on this project for 16 years, moved 5 times, had numerous major personal challenges, all while making steady progress. He even built his own molds to make his engine cowl, cooling plenum, canopy frame and turtle deck.

Aug 7th, 2021 - Young Eagles and The Alaska Airmens Association

Wow !!! What a day. A chapter 42 Young Eagles event, in cooperation with the Alaska Airmens Association aviation youth camp. Cliff Belleau and Burke Wick with their float planes, Bernie Willis and Edwin White flying on wheels, we flew 28 kids. It was a huge amount of work, Tom Lawhorn and Rick Henry as ground crew, Abby Austin, Alyssa Leier and all the airmen volunteers. It went off without a hitch. A GREAT DAY.

Jul 26th, 2021 - Scale usage

I just wanted let everyone know how easy it is rent the chapter scales. I contacted Mark Barker who is the caretaker of the scales to arrange pickup. The payment is super easy. On the website under membership join/ renew, there is a category for scale rental via paypal. There is a Glastar I did a pre-buy inspection on that was built as a tricycle gear, and converted to tail wheel and no weight and balance was done. Since I don’t have the nose gear to know how much weight to subtract, I need to weigh the aircraft and do a new weight and balance.
