5. NEW BUSINESS
Charlie Gabelmann stated that he has been storing the chapter tent for the past 5 years and can’t continue to do so. Charlie does have an outside party willing to take the tent as a donation. If the chapter desires to retain the tent, a member must be willing to store it. A decision on this matter will be made at the December meeting/party.
As part of his role as an FAA Safety Rep, Charlie attended a yearly training seminar. During the seminar, the FAA advised the four (4) years between Basic Med exams may be too long, and are considering reducing the time. They also indicated that little oversight exists on the Light Sport sector, primarily due to the relatively small number of pilots in that sector of aviation.
Trevor Jennings has restarted working on his Zenith 650 project. He had previously completed a rudder kit, but has done a second one since several years have passed since the first. He plans to do the elevators next.
The meeting was adjourned at 2015
The December meeting will be a combined Christmas party/meeting, and will be held in the upstairs conference room at the terminal building at Brunswick Executive Airport on Saturday December 8 starting a 1730 hrs. The only know item requiring discussion is a decision on retaining or donating the chapter tent.
