On August 13th several EAA Chapter 1361 members volunteered with or supported other aviation organizations in Northern Nevada. Two ground volunteers and three pilots helped with EAA Chapter 403‘s Young Eagles event by flying or helping to run the ground portion of the event. Chapter 1361 pilots flew 22 of the approximately 65 kids flown that day.
Afterward all five of them made their way to KRNO to show support and attend the Reno-Tahoe Aviation Group’s (RTAG) Tom Pagnano Memorial BBQ held in the Reno Flying Service Hangar. It was a tremendous turnout with great food. RTAG announced the winner of their inaugural Tom Pagnano Aviation Scholarship and awarded the winner a check for $2500 to further their aviation education.
Here are some photos from the event:
