Thanks to Tom for being the grill-master. He did have help… Bobby and Nancy served a lot of burgers and brats. Additional thanks to those people that got the pavilion spruced up for the event and brought fixins (Rick, Rick, Larry and others).

From EAA Chapter 104 member Ed Hanson…

We will be doing a group VFR transponder check at VPZ on June 29th. The tech is supposed to arrive at my hangar Q7 at 8:30 am local. We are looking for more participants. […] The fee is $80 plus a split of the $60 travel fee. Last time the guy moved to each hangar to do the check. If you get anyone interested please get a name and phone number so we can keep track. Thanks.

Ed Hanson

Please show up at our June 14th meeting at the KVPZ pavilion or send Ed a message to participate. If you can’t do either of those, please use our contact form.

FAAST Seminar – Pre-Ignition and Detonation February 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join EAA Chapter 104 on February 29th for a FAAST Seminar at KVPZ.

Go to the event page for more details.

Pre-ignition and detonation are responsible for a significant number of engine failures in General Aviation aircraft each year. Pre-ignition occurs when the air-fuel charge ignites while the piston is still compressing the mixture. Detonation is a violent explosion process after the compression stroke near or just after top dead center. This seminar will acquaint pilots with the hazards of pre-ignition and detonation events.
