No Oshkosh For Me

This will be second year that something has happened to prevent me from going to Oshkosh.  Last year my wife, Joyce, broke her leg.  This year I have torn a tendon in the back of my right knee and it makes for very painful walking for any period of time.  And as you know, Oshkosh is all about walking.  Maybe next year.

The EAA Give-Flight program is absolutely awesome!

The EAA is going to have volunteers at AirVenture in Oshkosh this year build 5 sets of wings.  It looks like four kit manufacturers have stepped up and donated the wing kits.

When you consider that the time and cost savings of already having  set of wings is substantial, probably as much as 40% to 50% (not including engine).

Jim Kos is doing a quick cost/time savings analysis of each kit and hopes to have that ready within the next few days.

I have put the links to each aircraft on the "Links" page of this website.

As a chapter, we really need to talk about this opportunity and maybe we can have a chapter online webinar with everybody to talk about it.

I have some ideas on how to submit our application so that we stand out.  I think the key will be showing the EAA just how freaking bad WE WANT SOME WINGS!!!

Post your thoughts.  Let's get a discussion going.
