EAA Chapter 104 needs you!
Please show up for the the work party on June 22nd at 8:00 AM. It will involve some excavation plus possible additional work. We are working to arrange for some equipment to do some digging, but we also need volunteers to do some fine digging and grading. Please bring a shovel, earth rake and other earth-moving tools.
Can you only show up for a little while? That’s OK! The more bodies the better.
Come out… volunteer… trade stories.. and possibly even learn something! Plus… there are airplanes right on the ramp! While working you can criticize landings, takeoffs, types of aircraft…. it’s loads of fun!
Please comment here or contact Ed Hanson or Larry Whitlow and let them know you will be there.

Saturday Saturday June 15th @ 10AM! Stop by for some coffee, donuts and approaches! This seminar is presented by the Greater Chicago FAASTeam and is hosted by EAA Chapter 104. Register online.
Unstable approaches and the reluctance of many pilots to go-around when an approach becomes unstable are precursors to many general aviation accidents. Emphasizing stable approaches and making the decision to go-around are key to reducing landing accidents.From the FAASTeam website
