Steve,

I'd like to have that logo as a sticker for the Citabria.  Any chance they've made those yet?

Thanks for joining us at last night’s webinar on International Learn to Fly Day.  Toward the end of the session, Ron asked for details on some of the events that are already being planned.

Here’s just a sample of what we received:

EAA Chapter 252 will hold a cook out and orientation flights at the Kermit Weeks hangar in Oshkosh

EAA Chapter 1300 in the Las Vegas area is planning an open house at Henderson airport.

EAA Chapter 186, Northern Virginia will be hosting a SFRA (Special Flight Rules Area) training day.

EAA Chapter 287 planning an Open House @ KOBI with introductory rides, static aircraft display and a BBQ.

EAA Chapter 643, Pittstown, NJ, is holding a career and learn to fly event with representatives from educational institutions as well as flight schools and aircraft manufacturers.  Orientation rides, too.

As you can see there is quite a variety of ways EAA Chapters are already getting involved.

Many more are listed on the EAA Calendar at www.eaa.org/calendar.  Please feel free to add your events to the list, which is nearing 200!
