EAA180 welcomes all visitors and invites all aviators as well as those with a passionate enthusiasm for aviation to join with us at 7:00pm on the 4th Wednesday of each month.
We meet at the McClure Auditorium in the SRQ complex. Off US 41 N, turn East on General Spaatz Blvd (by the Shell gas station) and then turn left after the gravel parking lot on your left. You'll see the auditorium and parking just ahead and to your right. Park, then come on in and join us.
Your involvement in providing ideas and topics for monthly meeting programs is very important to providing programs which you feel are relevant. We want our Chapter members (and guests) to be involved and actively participating even when you are vacationing and/or on a snowbird retreat.

April 15, 2017 Young Eagles Day Report
Saturday, April 15, was EAA180's monthly Young Eagles Day. Thank you Dawna, Lou and Brad for cooking up a great pancake breakfast!
The weather was clear and became breezy. Our pilots reported good flying conditions otherwise.
Thank you to our pilots: Jim Faix (C-172), Dan Skoda (C-162), Jeff Walston (C-172SP), Ron Keating (Liberty XL-2), Drew Gillette (Skipper), Ron Bernot (PA-32 Saratoga) and Ric Romanoff ( RV-12). Our flight crew flew 10 Young Eagles. (It was Easter weekend, but you never know!)
Thank you to our ground personnel: Shirley Mandarino, Michael Foust, Ron Shenkman, Chuck Hendricks, David Church, Dave Foss, Buck Greenlaw, Martin Sobel, Brad Smith, Wayne McCulley, Jim Rutushni, Tom Charlton and Chip Miller.
Great job, Everyone! No matter how big or small a part we each played, be proud to know You made a positive difference in a young person's future.
