Young Eagles Day - June 10, 2017

 

Pilots Bhrent Waddell, Tom Egbert, Mike Cox, Greg Hale and Matt Merrell provided 19 Young Eagles and 1 Eagle with an enjoyable day learning about aviation.  The Flight Line was managed by Jack Nelson, Rick Kurtsen, Jim Skrogstad, John Kurt, Paul Shireman, and Lynn Coltharp who kept everyone safe and sound.  In the background Mike Aichele and Stephanie Butler handled registration.

Although it was a beautiful day out, it was a bit windy coming in for landing.  I believe all the participates had a good time.

 Aviation Explorers - Learning about Rockets!


October 1st & 2nd, 2016 brought a group of young people together at EAA Chapter 10 Hanger to begin a new program that will give them an opportunity to learn more about aviation.
 
October 1st was movie night.  We ate pizza, snacked and watched "OctoberSky" - better known as "Rocket Boys!".  This was a movie about four young boys in a coal mining town, who taught themselves about Rocketry and won a National Science Fair Event.  Kids of coal miners where destined to follow in their fathers foot steps become coal miners - Homer Hickam Jr. and his three friends defied the odds and went on to college. Homer became a NASA engineer.
 
October 2nd was rocket building day.  Mark Chouinard put together a great program to teach the young people how to build a rocket.  They build rockets, ate hamburgers and hot dogs, and played a video game that teach you how to fly remote control airplanes. On October 9th the rocket builders will have the opportunity to shoot off their new built rockets.  Which one of these kids will go on to a fantastic career in Aviation?
