President's Message

December 2021

Hello All,

Maybe we will have a white Christmas after all, either way I am happy to get some water for the area! Please see below and plan on joining us during our December meeting for a Holiday Potluck! We will be conducting our annual business meeting as well to allow us to complete our chapter renewal by the end of the month. We have made headway on the bathroom, we had the electrical and plumbing inspections done, we received the list of discrepancies and almost have all of them completed for inspection. Once that is complete we will be drywalling the two interior walls of the bathroom! I hope all of you have been flying more than I have, I ended up in Iowa for ten days doing what else but renovating a bathroom, turns out I like flying more! I look forward to seeing all of you next week, maybe Tom will even dress up like Santa Clause?

Ray Scholarship Update

Todd has continued to move towards his private pilots license.  Because of his recent solo he was awarded a Lightspeed headset from the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation. There are a limited number given each year so it shows that Todd is ahead of his peers.  He is currently working on his solo cross country and written exam.

In addition, a picture of our own Kennedy Whicker was featured recently in the EAA Chaptergram!

2022 Dues

The 2022 EAA Calendars are in! Just a reminder that you get a free calendar when you pay your annual chapter dues of $25 (still the best deal in town)! These will be available starting at our chapter holiday dinner next week. Please pay your 2022 dues by the end of January; we take cash, check or Paypal. If you joined in the last quarter of this year, you are covered for 2022, so just come pick up a calendar!
2022 Scholarships

It is the time of year where we start the selection process for two scholarship opportunities we have coming up.  

1.  EAA Air Academy as part of Airventure - we have secured a spot in Advanced Camp Session 2 on July 29-August 6, 2022.  More info at

In January we will be interviewing kids for both opportunities.  The kids must turn 16 by the start of Airventure (25 July 2022).  Guidance on how to apply will be sent to all chapter members by the end of this month.
Calling All Artists

For a spring chapter project, our board would like to enhance the appearance of our hangar by painting an aviation/EAA centric mural on the Airport Road-facing side, which continues to promote "Plane Paint" <smiley face>.  Send your ideas to along with any talents, resource, etc. other ideas that you have.

Trip Report - Fremont Island

Recently I had the pleasure of landing on Fremont Island in a Cessna 170. It was my first landing on the island! There are two runways that you’re allowed to land on. I landed on both of them. 

The runway on the north side is largely flat with a few bumps in it, narrow, rocky and hard packed. It’s about 1800’ long. You typically land to the east and take off to the west. There’s a point on the approach where you can no longer go around and you’re committed as well.

The top runway is typically approached from the south, just to the west of the weather station. The approach to the runway has a slight curve to the left you’ll land slightly downhill and go up a good hill to get to the turn around point. The runway is only a few of feet wider than the gear. You’ll want to make sure you can land on center line, on airspeed and hit your point before going out.

As a newbie I would highly recommend going out in a capable plane with someone who has been out there before and knows what they are doing!
