FAAST Seminar on Saturday, August 14

EAA Chapter 104 has an upcoming FAAST seminar titled Service Bulletins and the Aircraft Owner. This will be held in the club room.

Aircraft component Service Bulletins provided by the manufacturer are created in response to servicing issues that may affect airworthiness. Depending on circumstances, compliance with Service Bulletins may or may not be mandatory, but they should always be considered to ensure continued airworthiness.

Online access to Service Bulletins and Service Instructions is readily available to aircraft owners, pilots and mechanics.

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.
