Our IMC/VMC Club for the month of November will be online from 7 pm to 8 pm on Wednesday, November 3rd. The program will have both IMC and VMC components.
The IMC part will be a continuation of last month’s discussion about missed approaches and when you have to make the decision to begin the missed approach procedure; this will be led by CFII Scott Thompson. The VMC part will also be a continuation of our “What Would You Do?” scenario from October, where a pilot is unable to maintain altitude and has to decide whether to land on a highway. More information will be provided about the pluses and minuses of landing on highways!
FAA Wings credit is available for this event by registering here, and all pilots are invited to participate. This is the Zoom link to join the meeting, which will be sent out again on Wednesday morning.

Shuttle, Houston: Life in the Center Seat of Mission Control
On Saturday, November 6 chapter 1541 will host a special event at our EAA hangar at Lincoln Regional Airport (KLHM). Our visiting presenter will be Paul Dye, editor of Kitplanes magazine, who retired in 2013 as the longest-serving NASA flight director in history. In his career at NASA, was involved in 39 missions, including nine as the lead flight director.
As flight director, he planned, directed and controlled the activities of the space shuttle team. His missions included both the first trip to the fully assembled Mir space station in 1996 (STS-79) and the last docking of a space shuttle at Mir in 1998 (STS-91). Paul has written about his experiences in a highly rated book available on Amazon. He will talk about talk about what it took to fly the shuttle, and how a life in aviation informed flying the shuttle… and vice versa.
Our event will begin at 0800 at the EAA hangar (S-12, KLHM) with coffee and donuts.
Our speaker will be arriving at 0900. Paul will be traveling from his home at Dayton Airpark in Dayton, Nevada and if weather permits, he will be flying here in his SubSonex jet. His presentation will begin at 10:00 a.m., after which we will be having a BBQ lunch at the hangar.
