Member Programs & Workshops 2022

What’s Next? Member Programs and Workshops for 2022

Happy New Year, and hopefully this finds you safe and well in these challenging times, as the virus impact has put our January membership activities on-hold – briefly, we hope!

Looking ahead to this new year we’re planning a range of member workshops and programs, in addition to our normally scheduled Monthly Membership Meetings (resuming in February), Saturday-Morning-at-the-Hangar events, twice monthly Fly-Outs and, of course, Young Eagles Flights. Our Pancake Breakfast fund-raising event dates are already set and are in the Chapter Events Calendar.

Specific workshops and programs we’re looking to arrange and schedule include:

~ Welding for Beginners – we’ve offered this twice in recent years and it attracted a lot of interest. We may hold two sessions this year, if demand is as per previous years. There will be a fee for materials etc.

~ ForeFlight in the Cockpit – demonstration and open discussion of Firelight experiences, best practices, tips, hints and more.

~ Building Experiences – several of our own Chapter members, and recent project builders, and our EAA Tech Counsellors, will be available together to share their experiences, advice and insights and just what’s it’s like to take on an aircraft building project. Get your questions answered!

~ FAAST Team Safety Programs & Presentations – relevant programs from the local FAA team, hosted by EAA240, open to the public

~ Airport Updates – airport operations, enhancements and maintenance shop updates from airport management and the local team

~ Flight School Updates – learn about the newly extended fleet and training operations from the owner/manager and team

These programs are being actively planned – many for Saturday’s – as part of the Chapter activities for the new year and will be offered to the 2022 EAA240 membership.

If you haven’t renewed your membership for this year (still just $35) you can do so easily, now, by clicking here

We welcome your suggestions for other, additional programs or workshops and do look out for the opportunity to register for the events listed above, coming soon. Plus, your feedback on the current plans and Chapter operations are always welcome, email us here

Fly safe. Be safe. Hopefully, we’ll be back together soon. Meanwhile, support your Chapter, renew your membership if you haven’t yet done so. If you have – welcome back – as, despite this slow start, it’s going to be a great year for EAA240.
