Triple Tree Chilly Chili Fly-in – Feb 2017

We had an awesome day for flying on Saturday, and a number of EAA chapter 1016 members went down to Triple Tree Aerodrome for their Chilly Chili fly-in. I was lucky enough to catch a ride with Anthony in his Grumman Cheetah, along with Bryce, one of our Young Eagles.

There were tons of planes there, and the staff thought that there were at least 300people in attendance since it was such a beautiful day.

Always love hanging out with with other aviation enthusiasts, and excellent venues like Triple Tree on a great day make it that much better. 🙂

December Meeting

We’ll be meeting at the Lacy Building at 6pm on Tuesday December 13th with a packed agenda including a movie and an informal holiday party. The club will be providing chicken and some sides but feel free to bring something to share.

Please contact Michael Doornbos at 828 450 7418 or mike at evadot.com for questions.

 

November Meeting

We’ll meet as normal at 7pm THIS Tuesday. Yes, it’s election day. Think of it as a way to spend time talking about airplanes instead of politics.

Our very own Mike Cola and Simon Jennings will be presenting on Turbo Chargers, we’ll chat about the B-17 numbers and view photos, and take nominations for Secretary and Vice President board positions for 2017.

We’ll also be discussing a movie night for December. We’ve got several films we’re looking at.

There will be light refreshments provided, looking forward to missing some of the election night coverage to talk airplanes 🙂
