Where: Bernie Willis's home / airstrip
Our June meeting will be at Bernie's home which has a nice airstrip, so we encourage members to fly in. He has a hangar with several planes and projects in it - all of this situated on a beautiful lake.
Address: 1501 S. Sylvan Rd Wasilla, AK 99654
About 1 hour from Merrill Field. (But well worth the drive!)
From the Parks Highway Take Sylvan Rd. south at the intersection with Pittman Rd. (which goes north).
Fly-in information: Bernie's airstrip is "AK45", which depicts on ForeFlight but not on the sectional. The strip is 06-24, 2,200' x 50' turf. This is only 2 miles SW of Wasilla (PAWS), so watch for traffic in their pattern. If your airplane would require landing at Wasilla, call Bernie at: (907) 301-2666 and he will have someone pick you up there.

Mar 3rd, 2018 - Airframes Alaska
I used to think that a jig was something that you used with or on a tool. I thought that pretty much any tool used with an aircraft could fit in the back of a full-size pickup truck. I thought that a jig would fit in the back of a pickup truck, if not in the cab of the truck. Every CNC machine took up at least 6 feet by 10 feet of floor space, and the mill was at least 10 feet high in the middle.
It was impressive to see the investment that Airframes Alaska put into their shop, from the equipment to people, training, floor space and dedication to quality.
A big thank you to Airframes Alaska.
