Sep 27th, 2016 - John Nealon's Highlander with a Viking Engine
John's plane is the Just Aircraft Highlander, not to be confused with the Just Aircraft SuperStol. The SuperStol is the model that places in the top 5 at the Valdez STOL competition. It's designed to make something more like an aircraft carrier style arrival than a landing. Nose way high, power on, when the tail wheel hits, cut the power.
John would like to put the Highlander on floats, where the STOL style arrivals are not recommended.

Aug 8th, 2016 - Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF)
At August's Board Meeting, Al Clayton gave a short presentation regarding the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF).
Al has volunteered to be the Alaska liaison for the RAF. The Recreational Aviation Foundation preserves, maintains, and creates airstrips for recreational access. Al thanked chapter 42 for our efforts in the past to maintain airstrips in the Wrangell St. Elias park (those efforts were spearheaded by past president Matt Freeman) and to alert us to a Wrangell St. Elias master plan revision that is in process. While not a threat at this time, constant vigilance is needed.

National Park Service - PEPC - Backcountry and Wilderness Stewardship Plan and GMP Amendment
Those inclined to comment might mention EAA chapter 42's history of hands on cooperation with the Park Service with maintenance of some of the remote strip and interest in linking arms with other general aviation groups (like the Recreational Aviation Foundation) for possible future cooperation.
