Larry presented certificates recognizing the effort and support various members provided to the chapter this past year.
Doug is buying a182 project that was landed hard and collapsed the gear.
Two powered parachute pilots and a drone pilot joined us to share their experience and footage. Jason brought in his powered parachute and showed us the backpack engine propeller mechanism. The whole kit weighs about 50 pounds. Both demonstrated inflating the wing, which was remarkably easy to accomplish. We also discussed the training required and flying the powered parachute.
Larry brought in a tailwheel / water rudder axel from a Volmer aircraft. Discussed the challenge the builder faced in boring the hole for the water rudder retraction cable through the central hardened steel axel. We also discussed the attributes of the aircraft itself.
My humble apologies to anyone who’s name I’ve spelled incorrectly.
