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.
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.
From Amanda Fack, Youth Services Coordinator for the Porter County Public Library System…
Celebrate National Aviation Day at the Porter County airport! The whole family is invited to join us for an edu-taining day sponsored by the local EAA Chapter 104.
This program meets at the picnic pavilion of the Porter County Airport. Starting at 10 am, you can meet local pilots, see aircraft up close, and visit educational stations about topics such as How to do a Pre-flight Planning Checklist. Young “aerophiles” will be able to create their own airplane craft (while supplies last). At 11:30 am, we will play Aviation Bingo where you can learn a little about the science of aviation and you even might win a prize that flies!
We hope you can join us to learn all about aviation science in our community.
Use of Weather Information and Preflight After Maintenance

In the first seminar, Use of Weather Information, we will take a look at available weather information sources for general aviation pilots and offer guidance on making well-informed weather decisions.
In the second 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.
