Guest Speaker and topic this month:

Thorne Harkin – Delaware National Guard C-130H Pilot

Thorne started flying at 12 years old.  He went to school at Marywood University for Aviation Management.  After college, Thorne ran Reading Air school of flight and FBO.  While at Reading, he became the youngest airshow promoter and learned the airshow business.  Thorne was fortunate to get selected as a pilot in the Delaware Air National Guard and currently serves as a C-130H pilot, recently returning from a deployment overseas. Thorne is a member of EAA Chapter 240, and a CFI-2 at Flight Connection, the flight school at N57.

Presentation: Upset Recovery Training

The presentation will help alleviate those fears you may have of those dreaded spins or clear up some misconceptions about slips, skids, and spins. We will be covering many different topics, but will specifically identify how and when we could get into a spin, discuss preventative measures to keep us away from that point, and how to recover from a spin. This one will be a very fun and interactive evening.

Visitors & guests always welcomed at Chapter Membership Meetings. We’ll be complete around 9pm, at which time hangar flying will resume.

Meeting location: EAA240 Meeting Room, New Garden Airport N57, Toughkenamon PA
