UPCOMING MEETING HIGHLIGHTS:
Second Saturday (14th) of March. We're working on a program for the meeting at this time. Stay tuned to this channel for breaking news. If you have a suggestion for a speaker that you can convince to come and educate us. Get with Doug and let him know right away. This chapter belongs to all of us so whatever help we get from our members makes us a better chapter.
Be a part of our YE program. Contact Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to help out. See the newsletter and/or contact Lee for current details on YE procedures designed to help the YE flights be more organized and safe.
It looks like we will be flying Young Eagles again in April. There are a group of youth from Ashley Ridge that have requested a rally.
Thanks to Von' (Fish) Fishburne for his work in recruiting groups of youth to experience first flight and to gain an insight into the world of aviation.
Volunteers are always needed for these events so please consider coming out and supporting our area youth's introduction to aviation. Also don't forget that if you know of a youth that wants to take advantage of the Young Eagles program they don't have to wait until a rally takes place. You can go to the EAA.ORG Website under the Youth tab, look up a YE pilot near them or contact Lee with their request. He will help find a pilot that will provide the flight for them and answer any questions they or their parents have about the program benefits.
To view a short video and see an article written about the Young Eagle Rally held at Allendale County Airport on May 11 go to the "more" tab at the top of this page, select the Young Eagles page and click on the orange button.
While you are on the YE page go ahead and learn more about the program and how to get involved. Even if you don't currently plan to assist in YE Rallies it could be worth your while to complete the requirements so that you could more easily be ready if you change your mind. It's simple, easy, and makes good sense.
February 8 we held a Young Eagles Rally (the one that had been postponed in December and January due to weather) and flew 23 Scouts. Troops from all over the lowcountry were represented. We had four volunteer pilots and six volunteer ground crew that all helped make the event possible, and a success.
