March 2018 Gathering

BRING YOUR PLANS.

If you have built, or are building an airplane, or just have plans or documentation for something cool, we’re going to do a show an tell of what plans look like on different planes.

In fact, bring any resources you have about building that you’d like to share. For example, I found Chris Heintz’s book “Flying your own wings” to be very helpful.

Contact me with any questions and really really looking forward to seeing everyone!

Sept meeting update

There was a scheduling conflict at the Lacy building for tonight’s meeting. Belle Maintenance and WNC Aviation scheduled an ADS-B seminar. I contacted the organizer and they said they had no idea we meet there every second Tuesday (as we have for many years).
Being the scrappy and adaptive group we are, we’re going to meet at the Circle B BBQ place across the street. I have jury duty today so I hope to get there before 6. Let’s plan on meeting at 6pm. You can eat there or not, that part is up to you.

Please call me at 828-450-7418 if you have any questions (remember I have jury duty so leave a voicemail or text me maybe)
