Next Meeting August 8 at 10:00 am *
Our newest member, Lewis Blackwell, will be giving a presentation on Aircraft Maintenance and details on how to get your homebuilt, experimental aircraft inspected for the airworthy certification.
Mr. Blackwell has an extensive aviation background, having served in the Air Force as a C-141 Flight Engineer / Flight Examiner. He has also worked as an Aviation Safety Inspector employed with the FAA at the Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) in Columbia, SC. After Lewis retired from the FAA, he was Designated as an Airworthiness Representative (DAR) and Engineeing Representative (DER) by the
FAA. Lewis travels extensively across the country inspecting both certified, factory built and experimental, homebuilt aircraft.
This will be a very informative presentation, especially to those who are aircraft owners and those who are either building or thinking about building an experimental aircraft.
The meeting will be held at our usual place at the Lowcountry Regional Airport (RBW) in the Terminal Building conference room. Hope to see everyone there and guests are always welcome.
As usual, after the meeting, all are welcome to adjourn to the big hangar for some delicious hogdogs and hamburgers.
* Please note the time change for August Meeting. The meeting will begin at 10am.
There will be no Young Eagle Flights during the August meeting due to the heat and humidity. The flights will resume in September.
If you are a pilot and would like to fly some Young Eagles or if you would just like to help out with the flights, contact Jeff Grigg at email@example.com.
