Saturday, August 13th, 2016 Chapter Meeting


Location:  Elk City Regional Airport Terminal


We had two visitors, Damian Hartpence, and Brian Zinn who flew their Cherokee 180 from Wiley Post.  It was good to see Damian & Brian again.  They flew into to our May fly-in at Haddock. 


Members In Attendance: Dave Hill, Kelly Hall, Gary Loftis, Dean Vaughn, Wayne Morris, Jeff Whitten, and Corey Alderidge.

Corey flew in with his new Backcountry Super Cub.


 So what happended?


We watched part of  the EAA August 2016 chapter video.  EAA has a new member benefit;  Free Solidworks software.


EAA wants to strongly encourage "Chapter Camping" at next year's AirVenture, July 24th to July 30th, 2017.  It is never too early to start planning for next year.

Speaking of Oshkosh, Dean Vaughn shared his pictures of his trip to Oshkosh this year.  Thank you, Dean.  It always stirs our aviation spirit to see the incrediable variety of aircraft, people, and events at AirVenture.

Dayton Dabbs, Gyroplane CFI/DFE has made us a great offer to come to Elk City to do Gyroplane Sport Pilot transition training.  The transition training course includes ground school and about 10 hours of flying.  The course takes to full days.  If you're interested in booking this training, please contact, Dave Hill or Kelly Hall. 


Coming Up:

September 10th Chapter Event:  TBD. 



Thanks guys for showing up. Meeting with you all is the most fun I have all month.




Dave Hill
