Chad Coleman has been working with the City to develop a new nested tee hangar at the Lincoln Airport. He’s looking to gauge interest in this possibility.
The project under consideration is construction of a new nested tee hangar essentially identical to the two newest green buildings on the field (on the North end of the transient parking ramp). Typical hangar bay sizes would be approximately 42-feet wide and 36-feet deep. Ceiling height would match the existing buildings. Doors would be split sliders just like on the existing buildings.
Lease rates for the space are likely to be very similar to what the City charges for the existing buildings.
If you’re interested, reply to Chad (916 847-3476) expressing interest. He’s not in a position to reserve space at this time but would be very interested in compiling a list of potentially interested parties and will certainly use this list as the project moves forward.
It’s that time of year again to pay your 2018 member dues.
The dues remain at $20 for an individual, $30 for a family.
You may pay a number of ways;
- cash or check at any meeting, or find Jim Hughes at his hangar, J-5.
- mail a check to ; LincolnEAA, P.O.Box 1126, Lincoln, CA, 95648
- PayPal to , firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new Board of Directors will be working to redirect the ‘Gold Member’ program, since we will continue to rent hangar S-12, now from Ron Wright.
The BOD will develop new programs to utilize the existing ‘hangar funds’.
Any member with ideas for programs and activities, please contact a board member, or, better, come to a meeting, board or member meeting and start a discussion.

This coming Saturday, Chapter 1541 will present a program covering the basics of ADS-B. Gathering at the chapter hangar (S-12) at the Lincoln Airport, we’ll start at 08:00 with a fine pancake breakfast.
At 09:00, we’ll spend an hour or so looking at ADS-B and how it applies to pilots and aircraft owners. If you can’t even spell ADS-B, this is for you. The 2020 equipage requirement is two years away; be informed and ready for what is coming.
On the agenda:
- What is ADS-B is and what it’s not
- If, when, and why you might want ADS-B
- The two basic types of ADS-B (UAT transceiver or 1090 ES transponder) and what each will give you
- The actual airspace requirements
- Some equipment options
Don’t forget this is the last opportunity to get tickets for the Xmas party!
