Chapter Meeting

Where: John Nealon's house - Wasilla

Our September 27th meeting will be at John Nealon's house to look at his Just Highlander project with a Viking engine. He has just taken delivery of the engine and hopes to have it mounted by the meeting date. He used the Stewart system for covering and paint.

The address is 4960 West Lakeside Drive in Wasilla. For years, many of our members from the Valley have been making the long trip in from the valley for meetings so this is a little bit of turn about being fair play.

We hope to see you there!

Aug 8th, 2016 - Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF)

At August's Board Meeting, Al Clayton gave a short presentation regarding the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF).
http://theraf.org/
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.

You can read more and comment here:
National Park Service - PEPC - Backcountry and Wilderness Stewardship Plan and GMP Amendment
https://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectID=44299

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.

Aug 6th, 2016 - Ed White flies Gale Partch in his RV-6

Ed White finished flying the 25 hour phase 1 period last weekend on Gale Partch's RV-6. On Saturday, Aug 6, the rain let up enough that Ed was able to take Gale Partch up for a flight in his RV-6. That was the goal of the Partch family to finish out this long saga and the plane has now been advertised for sale.
