UPCOMING MEETING HIGHLIGHTS:
I'm starting to sound like a broken record but once again here I am wAAAAY late on getting this update out.
This coming Saturday, October 14, we will meet at the Lowcountry Regional (Walterboro) airport. The meeting will start at 1100 with food afterwards.
At this meeting, Pat Shields (a perpetual and favorite presenter at our meetings) will discuss the current political climate regarding privatization of the Air Traffic Control System. This is a very sensitive subject for general aviation as it could very well mean the end of GA as we know it. Every country that has privatized ATC has seen a drastic fall off in GA or a failure of it to grow due to added ATC fees and restrictions. Come hear what our congressional leaders have before them to vote on.
This month the Boy Scouts will be feeding us as a thank you for being there to provide Young Eagle Flights.
There will be Young Eagles flights on the 14th starting at 0830 (pilot brief at 0800: contact Young Eagles Coordinator Jeff Briggs if you can help out (see email address below)) note that this is a small time change from previous YE events.
Business/Presentation Meeting is at 1100 with burgers and dogs (by Bruce) at the hangar grill following.
