Monthly Member Meeting Wednesday, June 19

Our June monthly member meeting will be held at the chapter hangar at the Lincoln Airport on Wednesday evening, June 19. We
will start with a BBQ dinner at 18:00 with all the fixings that we can find. Worried about a 100 degree day? Well, we just finished the installation of four fans from the hangar ceiling and also have added some more insulation. Come take advantage of our cooler hangar… you might even need to bring a jacket. Enjoy the last sunset of spring gazing westward from our hangar.

But I drift. We’ll do some serious hangar flying up until about 19:00 when we will hold a short business meeting and do a few fun
little things.

Then, at about 19:00, we will hear from Mike Rutledge from the Aerospace Museum of California. Better known to us locals as the air museum at McClellan, the Aerospace Museum has grown from its modest beginnings in 1986 to a fine regional air museum. It started as a base museum of McClellan AFB as part of the larger National Museum of the USAF collection but, after the base was closed, shifted to a foundation-supported air museum that has steadily grown to a collection of more than 40 aircraft with numerous themed exhibits housed in several buildings and outdoor displays.

Mike Rutledge is a volunteer at the Aerospace Museum of California who has a diverse background. He will present a program on the museum that should prove interesting to both aviators and non aviators alike as he gives us some behind-the-scenes information. Mike’s background includes:

  • U.S.A.F. Veteran (1967-1972)
  • Retired from office equipment industry
  • Avid RC aircraft builder and pilot
  • Docent at Aerospace Museum of California
  • Volunteer at Citrus Heights Police Department
  • Single engine land pilot certificate
  • Part 107 sUAS certificate
