Upcoming RV12 Expo

Here is a link to the RV12 expo that Wally is working on. The site looks great, take a look: http://www.rv12expo.com/ 


Alan Wieder's RV-9A has been signed off by the FAA DAR and he can be seen on fair weather days flying off his 40-hour test period.  "One item the DAR wanted me to pass on," said Alan, "is that the test area is not limited to 25 miles around your home airport.  My test area is 60 nautical miles centered on Corvallis, to give me a large portion of the entire Willamette Valley; 20 paved airports and 40 improved (usually private) strips as fail-safes.  According to the DAR, the FAA now supports a distance equal to cruise speed, so long as the fuel tanks can accomodate an hour out and back."



EAA Chapter 1457 meets the first Monday of each month at Mahlon Sweet Airport, Eugene or nearby location. We often start at 18:00 hours with a BBQ dinner or pre-meeting diner at Wings Resturant with the formal meeting called to order at 19:00, and generally lasts about 2 hours.  For program details and any changes in this schedule, check the "Meetings" tab, or the "Contact Us" tab.

If you are interested in flying, building, or just love aviation come join the fun!  We are eager to see you at our next meeting!
