We have made several improvements to the chapter hangar so far this year, starting with the epoxy coating on the floor, then the back porch and most recently there was some discussion about the muddy area and somewhat dangerous step up to the front porch. While discussing this with a small group a few weeks ago, Lynn Coltharp offered to buy the sod if we could acquire the necessary dirt to build up the area in front of the porch. Jim Pogue chimed in and said that he thought he could get the dirt donated by the airport, which he did. Jim and wife Edna filled and graded the area, then as soon as the weather would allow, Lynn rolled the sod and has been watering it in for several days.
In order to protect and preserve the efforts of these volunteers, the chaprter has decided to install guttering along the front edge of the front porch.
Looks great do far! Thanks for pitching in!
On Saturday, June 8, we flew 48 new Young Eagles! We flew a total of nearly 70 kids, so several who have already signed up for Young Eagles returned to fly again.
Thanks to all of our Volunteers for helping make this year's event a big success!

This May 2012 program was provided by Sebastian Heintz and Roger Dubbert of Zenith Aircraft. The two gentlemen flew down from Mexico, Missouri plant in a Jabiru powered CH750 and a UL powered CH650. They put on an excellent program and even demonstrated some of the capabilities of these aircraft. There are a couple of videos in the Videos section, and several photos have been posted in the Photo Gallery. More details to come in next month's newsletter.
