Lunch and a presentation, January 12th

We’ll be having a presentation on Saturday, January 12th, after a BBQ lunch.

Lunch starts at 11:00 – 12:00.

The presentation starts at 12:00 – EAA chapter 1541 new member and tech counselor Dan Masys will give a presentation on the evolution of aircraft electrical systems over the past century, and compare the strengths and weaknesses of traditional magneto systems with newer electronic ignition technologies. He will address the ‘care and feeding’ of magnetos and the lessons learned adding an electronic ignition to his Van’s RV-10. Be prepared for an electrifying and perhaps shocking program!

The January board of directors meeting is after the presentation, so around 13:15.
