Chapter 32 meets the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Aviation Resource Center at
St. Charles County Airport / Smartt Field (KSET).
General Meeting begins at 10am. Presentation following meeting.
Young Eagle Rally - Saturday, May 11, 2013 - Postponed
It is has been a sad couple of weeks with all the rain showers. What you did not see is the flood waters covered the north part of the airport and caused the pilots for the Young Eagle events to fly their airplanes out of Smartt Field airport. Presently, we have four airplanes in our EAA 32 Aviation Resource Center- Hangar that have escaped the flood waters coming in from the North side. This week we will try to put things back in order BUT the forecast for this week is rain Thursday, Friday, and Saturday!
So with the present situation at Smartt Field it is the Young Eagles Team and Aviation Merit Badge Counselors decision to POSTPONE this Saturdays event and present the program next month on Saturday, June 08, 2013!
Pilot and Crew Briefing: 8:30am Young Eagle Registration: 9am - Noon Boy Scout Merit Badge: 9am - Noon
Parents: The flights are free but a registration form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian before the child can fly. Forms are available the morning of the event or by contacting the Young Eagles coordinator at least one week prior to the event at email@example.com. Forms can not be faxed or emailed.
Scouts: If you are planning to attend the Boy Scout Merit Badge session, contact your troop master for all the appropriate paperwork. EAA Chapter 32 is not affiliated with the Boy Scouts so we do not have access to the paperwork you need. A Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselor will be available after the session to sign your paperwork. For more information and to download the workbook you will need for this session, go to our Young Eagles page.
All events are subjected to weather conditions and pilot availability. More information will be available. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
