Mango's is closed Sundays and wanted a firm commitment for attendance of 30 people to hold the price.

Please adjust your plans and let's gather there Sunday, December 9th at 6:30 p.m.; the meal should cost about $13.00 per person.

Please reply to EAA1167@gmail.com with any questions.

I look forward to seeing everyone there.

EAA 1167 Fall Fly-in, November 3, 2012

Our Annual Fall fly-in will be held again this year on the first Saturday in November which happens to be November 3rd this year.

There are usually 40 or more aircraft of all types including ultralight, light sport, and general aviation.

We'll have BBQ plates for a small donation, airplanes, and great company - don't miss this one!

See our gallery for lots of great pictures from past events.

Whether you're driving or flying in, see this page for directions to the airport.

Please call Wayne Robinson @ 843-450-3654 or Duane Drisco @ 843-450-5423 for more info.


Conway Airport information for the fly-in on November 3, 2012:

Please monitor Unicom 122.7 (if you have a radio) as we will have advisories on that channel.

Note the right traffic on runway 04 and left traffic on runway 22. This puts the pattern always on the southeast side of the airport.

Suggested pattern altitude: 1000 AGL for General Aviation and 500 foot for Ultralights.

Reminder: Conway’s runway is outside of MYR’s Class C airspace but it is fairly close to the outer ring so we offer the following information: If you are outside of MYR’s inner ring but inside their outer ring your altitude should be under 1200 feet or above 4000 feet in order to stay out of the Class C airspace.  Anyone inside of MYR’s inner ring and under 4000 feet must have a mode C transponder, radio, and be communicating with ATC – ultralight’s should avoid that inner ring area of course!

Older Info Left for Historical Reasons:

Hangar Meeting: Sept 1st

The next Hangar Meeting will be at Shallotte, NC on Sept 1st. Please arrive at 10 a.m. and we'll leave about 12 noon or so.

The project this month is a Titan T-51 Mustang which is a three-quarter scale replica of the P-51 Mustang. The T-51 is a two-seat homebuilt aircraft with dual controls and tandem seats and has remarkable performance given the small size of the engine. T-51 kits are fabricated by Titan Aircraft Company at South Austinburg, Ohio. The aircraft has a wide range of handling abilities, from a stall speed of only 39 mph to high performance up to 197 mph and agility afforded by a +6g / -4g load limit capability. See Wikipedia for more info.

The address was sent to everyone on our e-mail list. If you didn't get that message please contact one of the two people below. We are not publishing it here for security reasons.

Here is a map to the general location.

Please note that this event is open to everyone even if you are not currently a member of our Chapter. Come on out and have some fun!
