Meeting Minutes July 20, 2019
EAA Chapter 1167
Treasurer Report: Checking Balance $4170.08
This being Airventure time again there were a number of people out this week. Still, we had a good turnout and some good conversations.
We still need to have a flight advisor. We discussed the roles and responsibilities of the flight advisor. Not yet a designee.
Need to find a candidate for the Air Academy. Age 16,17,18 that can go through our vetting process.
The Fall Fly-in is planned for Nov. 2nd. We discussed ways to advertise and grow participation.
Local radio stations – typically free for non-profit organizations
The Sun News – may also provide free or low cost advertising for non-profits.
No new business discussed or suggested.
Visitors Virgil and Chris asked about Kit Fox experience within the Chapter. We discussed sources of support for the type.
Carl discussed fuel system “air lock” in the Chinese built Nanchang. Apparently if the type sits too long the fuel drains from the lines setting up an air column with pockets of fuel that prevent proper fuel flow. By physically clearing the lines the engine will run normally again.
