June 9th – Young Eagles Rally

We had a good turnout for attendees and volunteers.  By the end of the morning 30 Young Eagles (YE) flew and enjoyed themselves.   No one had to come down early. Many of the YEs had never flown in a light plane before.
Place: The Kings Aerodrome (CHL2) on Saxon Street south of Canning, N.S.
Time: 9:00 am through 1:00 pm

We met in KingAero Tech’s current hanger for sign-in and orientation. (click images for full size)

The weather turned very nice later in the morning.  Here are some EAA members enjoying that sunshine (before getting a group photo – copy coming later)

    • Young Eagles Information at EAA.org – This link has general information on the Young Eagle Program which goes beyond just taking a flight or visiting an airport. The youth can become a Young Eagle and get free benefits from EAA if they are interested in learning more about aviation and flying.

April Meeting 28th – report

Five members met at the Kings Aerodrome and worked though some of the details for the Young Eagles Flight to be held on June 8.  There was an encouraging dozen volunteers signed up to help. In the next month we will be confirming the volunteer effort and finalizing the details for this event.

The KingsAero Tech building is up waiting for the big hanger door.
