EAA Aviation Challenge Program


posted in

As I mentioned during the last Chapter Meeting, EAA National has instituted a new program that is trying to encourage EAA members to become more active in aviation and aviation-related activities.

Each month EAA National will issue an Aviation Challenge to the EAA general membership. The intent is that individual members will accept the challenge, accomplish the event and use social media to provide photos or updates commemorating the event using the social media hashtag #AVChallenge. EAA will then post the provided images in their social media account to entice additional members to participate.

I thought it would be a good opportunity to involve the entire chapter in challenges which can be completed as a group.

The April #AVChallenge is to visit an aviation museum.

Mike Reynolds is currently setting up a Chapter Fly-out to the Aerospace Museum of California at the McClellan Airport (KMCC) in Sacramento.

There are currently four Chapter members with flying aircraft, Me, Sandy Munns, Mike Reynolds and Dennis Koehl.  Each of us has one or more open seats for the flight. If you want to join in the fun, contact one of the pilots and see if they have a seat available.

From Mike Reynolds:
The trip is on for the 17th of April (Sunday) I called to get the info, they are actually open till 5 but I doubt we will stay that late. They do not have a cafeteria that serves food but there are plenty of places to eat on Watt avenue if you all want to have lunch. Plan on an 0900 departure and we are supposed to park at McCllean Jet Services. It is a short walk from there to the museum and we may be able to borrow a courtesy car to go get something to eat. The museum has senior and military discounts. I will recruit as many pilots in Carson that I know and you folks can recruit them up there in Reno. Lets darken the sky with planes. I am going to invite some EAA 403 pilots to go along. Lets have some fun.
