Movie Night - Saturday, June 20th - FLYING THE FEATHERED EDGE: THE BOB HOOVER PROJECT
Note the New Date
WWII veteran, prisoner of war, accomplished test pilot, pace plane for the Unlimited Reno races, air show pilot - Bob Hoover is considered by many to be one of the founding fathers of modern aerobatics. Jimmy Doolittle called him "...the greatest stick and rudder man who ever lived." Flying the Feathered Edge preserves the stories, the friendships, and the legacy that surrounds this man who quietly touched the trajectory of aviation's many developments - and who, due to his piloting skills, judgment, decency, luck, and just flat out ability to fly, is considered THE BEST. Robert A. "Bob" Hoover, age 92, is considered by many to be our greatest living aviator, and has influenced generations of pilots with his precision flying and gentlemanly demeanor. Nicknamed "The Pilot's Pilot" by his peers, Bob is largely unknown outside aviation circles despite his staggering accomplishments. In Flying the Feathered Edge, Director Kim Furst captures every nuance of Bob's amazing life story by skillfully interweaving vintage still images, rare historic footage, and exclusive testimonials from other flight legends, past and present - bringing this legend's incredible life and story into the limelight.

NEW: If your scout is interested in attending the Aviation Merit Badge session, please fill out this form: http://goo.gl/forms/0FNkeEyZGA. Space is limited.

We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
