We are meeting at Louie’s Hangar (Hangar N38 @ KVPZ) for some hands on aviation.
This month’s planned topic is:
Compression Testing! Troubleshooting and how to interpret the results.

2) Taken apart a metal wing and retrieved the main spar.
3) Taken apart a continental engine.
4) Taken apart a fabric wing.
We are looking for new members! Join EAA Chapter 104 and our local A&P IA for some HANDS ON learning. Message or post if you do not know how to get to hangar N38 at Porter County Regional Airport.

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!
