Chapter Events

Dateline Sept 24, 2016 

Our Chapter is working on a Young Eagles date. Please check back for more info. Hopefully in October!

The Chapter has been working with the Airport Authority to update our meeting facility. The Airport Authority has finished the interior walls with new insulation and drywall. They have also added a bathroom with showers. Member/Treasurer Fred Vaccaro has donated a refrigerator-range & microwave. Several members have been helping to cut grass and clean things up a bit. 

 Our President, Jim Dorman was instrumental in getting our Chapter 501-c3 status recently so we are all looking forward to great things happening for us.

John Davis, our past President has sold his airplane and he and his family have moved to Marshall , NC. They have purchased a 1903 Bed & Breakfast Inn that they are remodeling. 

 Jack Riley has been giving flying lessons and has been giving Young Eagles flights when possible (weather & time permitting). Jack is also on the Airport Authority Board.  

News Flash--As of our last meeting on 9.17.2016 we now have a brand new projector so we can all watch the EAA monthly videos that are sent out from EAA headquarters. All of the members that were at that meeting contributed money to help pay for the projector. A special thank you goes out to Ryan Montague for making the original purchase online thereby getting the ball rolling! Also a special thank you to Richard & Mary for their generous donation towards the projector fund. Thank you to all who contributed !!!  Having the projector greatly enhances our monthly meeting. The EAA videos help keep us abreast of what is going on with the EAA organization.
