2014-09-24 Three Crashes - Members' Experiences - Lessons Learned: Lyle Peters- Ultralight, Pete Makowski - CT Flight Design, and Wells Berry - Sonex
Oh my gosh !
What's happening ?
Now what do I do ! ? !
Our three speakers have each been through this experience in which with good piloting they lived to tell the stories of their crashes.
Come prepared with questions you always wanted answers to as you envision what might run through you own mind in crash situations.
Remember, as Bob Hoover tells it, "Fly the plane 'till it is stopped"
We are so happy that these Chapter members were good pilots and survived their crashes without serious injury or death, and are here to tell us about what they learned from their experiences. Plus, they will tell you the root causes of their crashes.
This is your evening to join with us and ask all the questions you've always wanted answers to.
We welcome all visitors and aviation enthusiasts. Bring your friends for fellowship with a passion for aviation. The meeting starts at 7:00pm on Wednesday evening, 24Sept2014.

From the Young Eagles coordinator:
Saturday, August 19, was EAA180's monthly Young Eagles Day. The weather was questionable at the start and built up to showers and an early finale. Pres. Brad and Sec'y Shirley flipped pancakes and put on a great breakfast for all in attendance. The turn-out of general public was light, but considering the weather and our volunteer availability, the event worked out alright.
"Thank You" to our pilots Jeff Walston and Larry Kraujalis who flew 7 Young Eagles into The World's Largest Logbook at EAA Headquarters in Oshkosh.
And "Thank You" to our much appreciated ground crew volunteers Shirley Mandarino, Mike Foust, Richard Cheek, Tom Maxfield, Jim Faix, Brad Smith, and Ron Shenkman for meeting/greeting, escorting, photographing, and making it all happen without a hitch. A Great Job everyone!
Saturday, Sept. 20, is Chapter 180's next Young Eagles Day. We have a large response from local foster families this month and we'll need lots of help. 3-4 aircraft and 10-12 ground personnel will be needed. Please check your schedule and let me know as soon as you know you can participate.
EAA member pilots with aircraft, ground ops personnel, and escorts are always needed to assist with our Young Eagles program held every 3rd Saturday of each month.
Please call Chip Miller with your offer to assist the Young Eagles program.
Join with us. We're changing kids' lives.
