Upcoming Meeting Highlights:
If you missed the August meeting you missed a super presentation by our local DAR, Lewis Blackwell, who discussed owner maintenance procedures allowed by the FAA on certificated aircraft as well as on homebuilt aircraft. The meeting was lively with lots of questions from the attendees, as well as input from some of those attendees who had experience that applied to the questions. Also in attendance was a long time A&P A/I (whose name I don't recall (somebody help me out, here)) who was able to sort out some of the aspects of our questions with his experience and extensive knowledge.
We had great attendance at the meeting and at the feed bag afterwards, despite a bit of warmth in the air.
Next month's meeting will be September 17th (THIRD Saturday). The change is due to the very popular Triple Tree Fly-In in the upstate that a number of us plan on attending during the period that includes our normal meeting date of second Saturday.
The Young Eagle flights have been starting at 0800 to try and beat the heat. Contact the Young Eagle Coordinator (Jeff) if you want to help. Remember there are some new requirements from EAA to keep our kids safe so contact Jeff early to make sure you're properly qualified. The meeting will still be at 11:00.
Come and hear our favorite Air Traffic Controller Patrick Shields. Patrick has been keeping us up on recent, and planned changes to Air Traffic Control in the Charleston area. His talks are always informative and he is a very talented source of information for all our questions about the status of all the changes that have and are coming about as a result of FAA rules changes and budget effects on our airspace. Come and enjoy the information and Patrick's personality. As usual, burgers and dogs to follow by chef Bruce.
What you should bring to the meeting is any ideas for future programs. Preferably ideas that you a have a presenter in mind for and a method of contacting that person.
