Treasurer Report: Working on an update with Duane
Discussed the trip to move the Thunder Gull. No word on the legal papers or the status of the final deal.
Discussed the Chapter's support for the Breakfast Club Fly-in at Hardee Air Park May 29th.
Invite the CAP to help and train with aircraft handling, etc.
Send out an email to get names for volunteers to help. Ron would like to get confirmation of availability to avoid any last minute replanning.
http://caycehouseofcats.com/12.html has video of the past events.
Lancair has a fly-in every year (Sept time frame) and has an open date for 2017. Ron asked if the Chapter might be interested in supporting the event out of the grand strand airport.
Hotels; arrangement for discounts
Can we notify taxi and rental car agencies to be prepared
Work with the airport for access and prepare for fuel demand (many of the airplanes are turbine powered)
The new Lancair IV P (pressurized) and fiberglass / carbon fiber construction, composite layup, resin and catalyst reactions.
Aerial solutions and tree trimming from the air. Carl actually knew the guy that designed the system. When that guy died in a crash the folks that bought the IP designed a release mechanism to prevent the accident happening again. That is probably one of the toughest flying jobs I've ever heard of.
Cable company required now to allow people to own their own cable box. Ron worked with the phone company when MCI started being able to handle the long distance service.
