Chapter Meetings

Chapter meetings are usually held at 7:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month in the main downstairs conference room at the Henderson Executive Airport. Meetings are open to the public.

We also usually enjoy an informal dinner at 5:00 p.m. for anyone who wishes to join us. The location is the Black Mountain Grill, 11021 S. Eastern Ave in Henderson.

October Events

On Wednesday October 14 we plan on having another chapter meeting at President Robert Jones' hanger G5 at Henderson. The last one was not very well attended with only about 9 people coming. Part of the reason was a lot of the membership was out of town. We received quite a number of email responses from people that indicated that they would like to attend the meeting but they were out of town, so we are going to try this one more time. The meeting will be at 7:00pm at hangar G5 at Henderson. Call 702-521-1840 as you approach the South gate (Gate 15) to get in for those that don't have a gate pass.

On Saturday October 31 we are going to have another pancake breakfast at Hanger G5 at Henderson airport starting at 8:00am. The last Pancake Breakfast had about 40 people attend. The fact that it was so popular is the reason we are having another.

Pancake Breakfast This Saturday!

There will be a Pancake Breakfast at Henderson Airport at Hanger G5 this Saturday September 19, from 8:00am to about 10:00am. For those of you without an airport pass, go to Gate 15 at the south end of Jetstream Drive. Call 702-521-1840 or 702-496-8314 when you get to the gate. Someone will come and open the gate for you. A donation of $5.00 for each person would be appreciated, but not required, to cover expenses. The menu will be pancakes, sausage, bacon, coffee and orange juice. Robert Jones' RV10 will be parked in the alley close by G5 and Brian Aldridge's RV8 will be in the hanger waiting for the FAA to get it inspected. Anyone interested can look and ask any questions they want.

September meeting is on!

After conferring with the membership via a recent poll and the board members, president Robert Jones has decided to resume having monthly meetings. However, for now we plan on meeting at his Hanger, G5, at Henderson Airport.

We are also planning on having another pancake breakfast at G5 on September 19. We will provide further details about that closer to the event.

For those of you who do not have a gate pass you can call one of us at Gate 15, which is the southern most gate at Henderson Airport. For those not familiar with how to get to Gate 15, turn off St. Rose Parkway on to Raiders Way (new name) south toward the airport. Turn left on Executive Terminal Drive, then make the first right turn on to Jet Stream Drive. When Jet Stream Drive makes a 90 degree turn to the left, the gate will be the next left turn. Call Robert at 702-521-1840 or call Kathleen at 702-496-8314 and we will get the gate open for you. To get to Hangar G5 from the gate, drive straight through the gate past the first row of hangers on the right. Make the first right turn available and drive straight ahead until you get to the last alleyway between two rows of hangers on your right, and turn right there. Hangar G5 will be on the right side. It is OK to park in front of hangars G4, G5, G6 and the hanger across from G5. If nothing is available any of those places, park anywhere you can and you can move your car if necessary for someone to access their hanger, which is very unlikely.

We are not planning on an official program, but Robert's recently painted RV10 will be outside just to the south of G5 and Brian Eldridge's RV8 will be inside G5. If I can get permission from Rick and Carlton you may get a chance to see Carlton Bailey's RV8A next door in G4 and the Cessna 175 that Rick and Carlton have been upgrading the panel on, as well as a huge amount of other restoration work as well.

We plan on keeping the business meeting as short as possible. The only new business we want to bring up is considering whether to buy some chairs for the chapter to be used for chapter events. The weather forecast says that we are going to have a high of 79F on Wednesday, which is hard to believe, and there is a large swamp cooler in the hanger if it is a little warm.

For those that chose to come, please bring a chair. We don't have enough chairs for everyone.

Please understand that we are not expecting everyone to come. We know that some of you have serious concerns about attending any kind of social gathering right now. Please do not feel any pressure to attend if you have concerns. We all have to weigh our own concerns about our own health right now and make whatever judgements we think are appropriate for ourselves. The reason we decided to have a face to face meeting is because a large percentage of the membership that responded to our poll wanted to. We are looking forward to when this current situation is over and things are back to normal. We don't expect that to happen for several months yet at the best.

Congratulations to our 2020/2021 Officers and Directors!

  • Robert Jones, President
  • Howard Curtis, Vice President
  • Norman Cruz, Secretary
  • Ralph Millard, Treasurer
  • Roger Hansen, Director
  • Kathleen Jones, Director
  • Erich Trombley, Director
