Are you aware of how many pilots have misaligned to and even landed on or departed from a wrong runway, and even to a taxiway? On May 19, 2022, the Hot Spots on FAA Charting Publications will have three shapes with two distinct meanings.
Join us for a dynamic Kick-Off Outreach and Education Campaign to learn more about standardized Hot Spot symbology and a NEW Arrival Alert Notice. We’ll share real-life events as we present these new & improved tools to help increase your situational awareness.

Our first Saturday of May special event will be entitled “Brunch with Bud”.
This will be a chance to meet Bud Anderson in person — the last living triple ace pilot of WWII, P-51 wingman of Chuck Yeager, and a career Air Force test pilot who grew up near Newcastle, California.
Brunch with Bud will be on Saturday, May 7th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the EAA hangar at KLHM, and will include a special meal and a chance to honor one of the most famous Greatest Generation pilots in the world.
For April our monthly chapter meeting will shift from Wednesday to Thursday, April 21st, with open mic hangar chat beginning at 6:45 pm and the main meeting starting at 7 pm.
Our program will be given by our chapter’s tech counselor, Dan Masys on the general topic of borescopes and what they are good for, and the specific item of a new, low cost, High Definition image borescope that can record audio, video, as well as make amazing still photos inside cylinders and other internal areas of an aircraft engine.
All aircraft owners, whether of certified or experimental aircraft, should find this an informative program that could help them save a lot of money on unnecessary maintenance. You can join the meeting on Thursday evening by clicking here. The link will also be sent out the day of the event.
Last month, 4 airplanes and 10 people from EAA1541 flew to Modesto (KMOD) for the monthly Commemorative Airforce breakfast, which has now resumed.
This Saturday, April 9, we are again going, and looking for more company. Plan on departing KLHM around 8:30 for the approximately 30 minute flight.
Assuming you land on either 28 R or L, taxi across the large ramp on the left to the huge hangar that houses the breakfast. This event draws a large crowd, typically 150-250 people.
Our chapter’s monthly IMC/VMC club meeting for April will be held online from 7 to 8 pm PDT this coming Thursday, April 7. The topic for the IMC portion of the meeting will be a discussion of Obstacle Departure Procedures (ODPs) and when and how to use them even if you are not required to. The VMC portion of the meeting will be a “What Would You Do?” scenario of trying to rendezvous with another aircraft in flight where things don’t go as planned.
All are invited to participate. The link to join is here:
