Presidents Corner January 2007:
I’d like to thank the membership for their expression of confidence in the 2007
slate of officers for
Chapter 1300. We certainly have big
shoes to fill. I would like to assure
the membership that we
do our best to live up to the high standards set by David Lerner and the rest
of the 2006 officers,
will start our year with a real treat at the January 10 meeting at the new Henderson facility. Dean has
for a presentation by USAF Capt. Bly – a predator pilot and trainer from
Nellis. I expect to see
great video and gain key insights into this unique USAF program. The February meeting will be at
Boulder City where I hope to discuss our
priorities for 2007. I have a few ideas,
but your 2007 officers will
most interested in input from each of you as chapter members. Please try to
face several opportunities and challenges this year. First, the continued success of our Young
has become a legacy priority for Chapter 1300.
It represents a very real contribution to the future
personal aviation by any American who chooses to take up the challenge.
Opportunities to expand these
– especially the ownership of “Discover Aviation - Wings and Wheels 2007” at
Jean will continue to
a priority in my book. I am also hopeful
that we can find ways to include the other end of the age spectrum
Eagles”?) with broader exposure to the advantages EAA and the new LSA ratings
urgent set of challenges to our freedom of flight are represented by the first
flights ban at VGT. Talking to
Johnson at a recent Henderson Hangar Meeting raised concerns that this type of
challenge may not be too
off at Henderson. We will have our hands full with this and
related FAA and non-flying public challenges
our activities. I am confident that
Chapter 1300 will make a positive contribution as we work together to
our freedom of flight in 2007.
your airspeed up,
Chapter President, 2007
Minutes December 13th 2006:
will be the last time I write the minutes as secretary for 2006. I want to
thank everyone for a great year and look
forward to serving you as VP in the coming
January meeting will be held at Henderson
instead of VGT. We have a very special speaker who will talk about
B-1 and the Predator. To read more go to the Chapters website and click on the

you will definitely miss a very informative
exciting presentation. (We will see/use the new audio/video equipment in the
airport meeting room).
