Saturday Flyout

Richard Balderson hangar sale

Many of you may have heard that Richard Balderson, one of the founding members of Auburn Chapter 526 and owner of a hangar at Lincoln, is facing the life-threatening challenge of his life. His wife, Pam, has expressed her deepest appreciation for the warm and positive support of EAA members, and she will be grateful for your continued support. She asks especially that, if you know him, give Rich an occasional call just to chat, tell him what’s up with you and, hopefully, give him a few laughs. You should call on their home line, (916) 966 – 6712.

In the mean time, there are several items in Richard’s hangar at Lincoln in which you might have an interest. The list includes:

  1. A 1990 Jag XKS V12 with only 71,744 miles on it. It’s white with a sharp tan interior. It’s been registered as non-op for the last 6 years.

  6. A Schwinn 20″ child’s bike.
  7. A Dahon 3-speed folding bike.
  8. A set of 4 steel spoke wheels that look like they may have been from a Pontiac Firebird.

  10. A 15 gal. hand crank fueling station cart.

Saturday Flyout

The RVators have a flyout on March 22nd:

“This Saturday we are planning on Watts Woodland. We’ll be eating at the golf course so you will need to wear a collared shirt. We have never been there before so this will be new for most of us. We plan on meeting on the Ramp at the destination at 11:30 or in the air en route on 122.75. We hope to see you there!”

Time for Action: Support the Third Class Medical Legislation

It is time for us to act in support of the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act (GAPPA). Send a customizable message with the EAA’s Rally Congress tool, or you can write, call, or email your Congressional delegation today and ask for their co-sponsorship and support. This legislation would apply medical certification standards similar to the decade-old and successful Sport Pilot rule to most general aviation aircraft when flown for personal flights under visual flight rules at or below 14,000 feet MSL and under 250 knots. The bill is designated S. 2103 in the Senate and H.R. 3708 in the House of Representatives, introduced by Senator John Boozman and Representative Todd Rokita, respectively.

Don’t forget, our own Laura Nealon will be giving a most long-awaited review on flying the U-2! All friends and family are welcomed!

Saturday Flyout

The RVators have a flyout on March 15th:

“Next weekend is the annual Ice Cream social event at Inyokern. This is a big RV event and they are expecting over 40 RVs from So Cal. This should be a blast! So far we have 5 planes from our group headed down – we plan on having a late Breakfast in Porterville and then flying over as a group. If you are coming from the Reno area we will meet you there. It starts at 11:00 and goes until 14:00. If you would like to go let Mike Brewton know and he’ll tell Axel so they have enough Ice Cream. The weather is supposed to be nice next weekend and we really hope for a good turnout from the Nor Cal Group! Hope to see you there!”
