EAA Chapter 104 will be meeting at Louie’s Hangar on Monday November 11th at KVPZ at 6:30pm. This month’s topic is planned to be Care and Feeding of your Ignition System… Magnetos to Spark plugs!!
This seminar will be held at the EAA 104 Chapter Room.
The title of the seminar is Controlled Flight Into Terrain and Over-Reliance on Automation. From the FAASafety.gov website:
An over-reliance on automation may be a precursor to a flying mishap, regardless if the flight is in daylight hours or during night flight conditions. General aviation pilots are well-advised to understand the limitations of automation and to maintain proficiency in flight operations with and without automation.FAASafety.gov
See you there!

If you have been impacted by the work of the Collings Foundation or any other Living History Flight Experience (LHFE), please take a moment and comment on the the current docket regarding the renewal of the Collings Foundation LHFE program.
From the Collings Foundation…
[…] In the coming months, federal agencies will be reviewing the LHFE program for not only our organization, but many other organizations nationwide who continue to fly vintage aircraft as a part of their educational mission. As these reviews take place, we feel it is important for the voices of those impacted by the Wings of Freedom Tour over the years to be heard. We need to let federal agencies know that the LHFE program is important to you and other American citizens as an educational tool. […]Rob Collings,

EAA 104 Member Ed Hanson wanted to share the following…
Just a reminder we will conduct our mini ground school with the Porter County Public Library System this Saturday September 14th from 2 pm to 4 pm in the Chapter room. At least 6 teens have signed up so far. The topics we will highlight include aerodynamics, aircraft systems and instruments, FAA regulations, navigation and communications, aviation weather, and pilot qualifications. I will do a short introduction talk then if the weather is good we will walk them to the ramp to look over an aircraft pointing out the various parts and instruments.
We will then have whoever wants to talk cover the subject topics. I can cover weather at the end as I can adjust my time to fit whatever is available. Please step up and share your knowledge with the pilots of tomorrow. This is a low key event and everyone usually joins in the discussion. Thanks for your help! Please share this information with other members who are not listed on this email.
Please consider volunteering for this event. You can use our contact form or contact Ed directly.
Our September meeting will include a FAAST Seminar starting at 7pm (registration encouraged). This will be held at the EAA Chapter 104 club room at KVPZ. Arrivals begin at 6:30pm and the seminar will start at 7pm. Regular chapter meeting to follow.
In the seminar, “Preflight After Maintenance,” we will discuss the importance of thorough preflight inspections of aircraft that have just been returned to service. The discussion will include the consequences of inadequate preflight inspections, some common problems that have led to accidents, and what to look for following maintenance.FAAST Website
