EAA Chapter 818 – Burlington, Washington  KBVS


 


Chapter Meetings

Our next monthly meeting will be on Saturday, November 13 at 10 am in the Port of Skagit conference room, 15400 Airport Drive.

We’ll hold our regular business meeting, including election of officers. Then Lyle Parker will tell us about the flight he and his wife made last year from Florida to Anacortes in their AirCam. Lyle will share photos from the trip and some videos featuring the AirCam.

MASKS ARE  REQUIRED INDOORS AND, DUE TO SKAGIT COUNTY’S VERY HIGH COVID INFECTION RATE, WE ASK THAT YOU ONLY ATTEND IF YOU’VE BEEN VACCINATED.

Instead of the December meeting we’ll hold our Christmas party Saturday, December 4 at 11 am, at the Skagit County Fire District 6 station just east of the airport, 16220 Peterson Road. The Chapter will provide turkey and ham, and we’ll do pot luck for the rest of the meal. If you plan to attend but haven’t already RSVPed and signed up for a dish, please contact Bob Savage or Mark Burns.

While at the airport on Saturday, be sure to visit one of the businesses for lunch or refreshments–Skagit Landing, Chuckanut Brewing or Garden Path Fermentation.

WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT:

Our group of aviation enthusiasts, made up of pilots, mechanics, CFIs,
retired veterans, and interested persons meets once a month at the Skagit Regional Airport to
discuss mutual interests, share current aircraft projects and safety information, and to be
enlightened by a featured speaker with an adventure to share.

We also host “Spot Landing” contests, barbecues, and participate in other local fly-ins, such
as in Anacortes, Arlington, and at Mears Air-Field located in Concrete. Our Chapter
participates at the Arlington Air Show by sponsoring the “Fly-Mart” booth
during the course of this event. Owning an aircraft is not a prerequisite; just
an interest in aviation is all that is required, and hopefully, a desire to become
involved with a great Chapter.

One of our most anticipated events is flying children & teens from the ages
of 8-17 years of age, free, through our Young Eagles Program, sponsored
through the EAA Organization in Oshkosh, WI. Pilots volunteer their time and
the expense of aircraft fuel to ensure that any child can experience the thrill of
flying.

This event requires just as many “ground-crew” volunteers as pilots. On the
average, we fly 60 children every year in the late summer time during this one
day event.

We work closely with the the Skagit Airport Support Association (SASA), the Heritage
Flight Museum, the Port of Skagit and other area aviation related outfits to help
build a healthy, vibrant, innovative, and safe community of aviators.

Hope to hear from you, or better yet, see you at our next meeting!
