UPCOMING MEETING HIGHLIGHTS:
Second Saturday (8th) of February. We are once again going to attempt to fly the Young Eagles that were originally scheduled for December. If you wish to help out and were not yet contacted, please get ahold of Lee (see Young Eagles below) so he can put you on the list of people to keep directly informed. Otherwise keep an eye on this website and watch your email for news.
There is currently no contingency program for this meeting so if you know of a representative for an interesting presentation please let Doug know right away.
Be a part of our YE program. Contact Lee at email@example.com 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.
The December Rally has now tentatively been moved all the way back to February due to weather being disagreeable in December and January. Fingers crossed folks.
The next Rally after that currently being planned is tentatively scheduled for March and will involve members of the area Jack and Jills clubs. Volunteers will be needed for all 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.
LAST MONTH'S MEETING
January's planned Young Eagles flights were postponed due to wet weather with low clouds. We want our Young Eagles to enjoy their introduction to flight and for conditions to support the safest, smoothest ride possible.
Luckily we did have a backup plan as Doug presented the movie "One Six Right" about the interesting life history of the Van Nuys Airport and its struggles to survive in a hostile environment.
