Saturday April 30 9:00-5:00 and

www.greatalaskaaviationgathering.org

Volunteers are needed to represent EAA Chapter 42 and we would greatly appreciate it if you could spare a couple hours to help man the booth and share your enthusiasm of Experimental Aviation with others.

Whatever time you could spare would be appreciated, but I'm going to suggest requesting 2 hours from each member. This is not a huge commitment, but hopefully we can have more members participate this way.

The hours are: Saturday April 30 - 9:00-5:00 and Sunday May 1 - 10:00-5:00 plus setup and take-down.

Please contact: Lars Gleitsmann Cell: (907) 229-6792 larsgleitsmann@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you there!

Apr 13th, 2016 - Gale Partch's RV-6 being flight tested by Bob Edison

Congrats to Gale, Bob and Rob for jobs well done!
Not only did Gale work very hard on his own airplane, he also spent countless hours assisting others on their homebuilt projects. Many friends and Chapter 42 members contributed to the successful completion of Gale's RV-6 but Chuck Hosack, Mark Barker and Jonathan Fant worked tirelessly on the final completion steps. Without their expertise and unselfish dedication, the plane might well be a couple more years in the hangar. Although there are too many more to list, we would like to point out that Burke Wicke's, and Tom Lawhorn's help and experience in the last stages of the build were extremely valuable.

Nov 24th, 2015 - Quickie Deconstruction

Quickie
At the November Chapter Meeting we deconstructed the Quickie that was donated to the Chapter. Fairly quickly we started on the canopy, engine and propeller.

Quickie
With better access to the cockpit, we started on removing the instrument panel. Easy non-critical wires such as wing tip lights were cut. Didn't cut the radio antenna that we couldn't easily disconnect from the radio. Disconnected and fed the EGT leads through the firewall. Disconnected and pulled the battery and starter cables. Pulled engine controls.

Quickie
There was still some oil in the engine. Drained the oil, and we had to unscrew the plug for the oil pressure gauge to feed it back through the firewall to uninstall the oil pressure gauge so we could put it back on the engine to plug the hole without cutting the oil pressure line.
Fortunately there was a hoist in the hangar only about six feet away. We picked up the plane and moved it to the hoist to support the engine while we disconnected everything.

Quickie
At the end, the Revmaster engine was upright resting on it's radiator on top of a milk crate. There was enough clearance for the exhaust pipe.


The chapter has used parts for sale...
