Corner July 2005:
seems only yesterday when Jim Bonelli and I rolled out to North Town
to pick up Plane and Pilot Editor, Lyn Freeman, who was
to speak to our chapter that evening.
For those of you who missed this meeting well you missed a good one to say the
least. Lyn is both the kind of person
that you would want to have as a friend as well as a speaker one couldliterally
listen to for quite some time and not get tired of his seemingly endless
aviation anecdotes. A major cause of his which
he talked about is to bring aviation to youngsters around the world through a
program called Build-a-Plane.
Build-a-Plane is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating programs to
involve high school-aged kids in aviation: (web site is www.buildaplane.org).
Lyn indicated that there were six or seven projects presently underway
throughout the United States and he was looking for a project for a group of kids
about 100 miles outside of Moscow,
kids are already signed up, a Russian aerospace engineer has offered to run the
project, the local school has donated classroom
space for formal aviation lectures and instruction, and a local airport has
provided the space and manpower to began.
they need is a project. Lyn mentioned
that if anyone has an aircraft or components to donate log on to the web site
disappointment in our program efforts as neither our Astronaut meeting
featuring Jeff Ashby nor this last meeting with Lyn
Freeman were as well attended as I had hoped. Please get back to me as to whether or not
this is the sort of meeting
you really want. Personally I can’t
imagine coming to a meeting each month to discuss relatively the same
August meeting will feature Mike Perger discussing
electric basics. He has put a great deal
of preparation into
presentation so I hope you will mark your calendars for what promises to be
another excellent session.
Freeman sent over some goodies to raffle off at the August meeting as well.

speaker Lynn Freeman was then introduced. Lynn is the editor of Plane & Pilot and
the Pilot Journal, a rather recent publication. Lynn gave us a very
interesting account of what it's like to be an editor of an aviation
magazine. He claims it's
the best job in the world because he gets to fly in many different kinds of
aircraft, travel all over the world and meet many of the movers and shakers in
the world of aviation.
The fly-out to Oceano was cancelled because not enough people signed up for
it. The next scheduled fly-out is to
Palm Springs in September. Our annual picnic is scheduled for
One of our
members who works at the Nevada Test Site said the there have been many

From EAA Chapter 1073:
I thought I'd
pass this on to all our members and chapters who might have members
attending our next monthly meeting in July as this
will be a rare opportunity to hear and meet the man
behind a new breakthrough in
propeller design. This presentation is going to be extra special so
the date and time on you calendars.
