Aircraft Electric Systems.
We will have the tag team of Jonathan Fant and Chuck Hosack giving a presentation about aircraft electric systems. Jonathan is an electrical engineer, and Chuck is a serial airplane builder.
Chuck is finishing his fifth plane and thinks that putting together electrical systems is much easier today than it was when he worked on his first plane.
April 2nd 2014 - Wednesday 7:00 PM
As always, all Chapter 42 members are invited and encouraged to attend.

Jan 26th, 2014 - Hello from Manila Y'all!
Seems like my retirement is simply a license to work more than I did before. Really can't complain, though...there are worse jobs.
I will be flying the amphib Caravan for Huma Island Resort until April. Although it is a very enjoyable job, I really can't wait to be back home in Alaska with Laurel (and Chapter 42).
I want to thank Chuck Hosack for the job he's doing. One can easily lay back and have the chapter just roll along but he has taken the bull by the horns and, from what I can see from a few miles away, is doing a great job.
The Caravan will be down for a while to be re-registered with a Philippine number. After that we will have to abide by Philippine Air Regulations. This means it will no longer be a single pilot airplane as Caravans in this country are required to have a first officer. I will be training a local pilot in our Cessna 206 starting Tuesday. I am working on getting him up to speed to take my place when I leave in April. I will also be training a relatively low time pilot to be his first officer.
Please email when you have the chance...love to hear how everyone's doing.
Best to all, Bob
