Welcome in the new year!

I am sure all of us are glad 2020 is behind us. Although it will probably be mid year before we are all back to some semblance of normalcy. I am definitely looking forward to meeting you all once again in person.

I would like to welcome the new members that joined us last year: J Faigant Rick Farrell Bill Hinton Gary Jamieson (was a member previously in 2015) David Karalunas (was a member previously in 2017) Asia McKnight Scott McEwen Martin Rhett Paul Rupple Scott Selzer (was a member previously in 2018) John Tomsic Kristina Votaw Steve Willis

Where ever you are in your aviation journey, I am glad you have decided to be part of ours. Aviation is why we get together but it really is about the people, aviation people are the best and I am looking forward to learning your story.

The board of directors is always looking for ideas for meetings and what the members are interested in. You can email me directly with ideas or suggestions.

Regards Tom Lawhorn Chapter president tomlawhorn@gci.net

Additional chapter meeting

Where: Zoom meeting

It has been suggested that we have more than just one gathering a month since we are doing it virtually. I am at that point in the Glastar build that I need order the instrument panel and need to make some decisions. I will be soliciting advice on what would be your ideal panel, on a budget. I know it is easy to spend more than $50,000. on a panel. My goal is less than $25,000. Bring your ideas for a day VFR panel and help spend my $.

Chapter scales rental fee

The chapter has a set of scales that chapter members can use to weigh there aircraft. Since we no longer have an FBO that is paying to keep the scales certified, the board has decided to charge a small fee for the use of the scales to offset the biannual calibration/ certification cost. For chapter members the rental fee is $50. Non-chapter members can rent the scales for $100. Non-chapter members can join the chapter for $24. And then rent the scales for $50, saving $26.

We hope most people won’t mind the fee in order to have certified scales at our disposal.
