Chapter 690 1st Saturday in March Aviation Program & Breakfast
What - You're Not building An RV - Yet?
The March, 1st Saturday Aviation Program and Breakfast will not be about an aviation topic. The program will explore an aviation phenomenon.
Vans Aircraft has been producing affordable experimental aircraft kits since the early 1970s. Today, over 8,500 Vans RV aircraft are flying, more than any other type. RV pilots enjoy aerobatics, long cross country trips and formation flying in planes that provide "total performance". Passionate RV builders and flyers have infiltrated every airport, every EAA chapter and every flyin. They are known as Vans Air Force.
Several home grown VAF builders and pilots are going to show us what all of the commotion is about in the RV nation. We will find out how RV kits go together, the support provided by builder groups, and how much it really costs to finish an RV. RV pilots will also let us know what the term "total performance" really means, whether it is entering a loop from a level cruise, holding position in a 4 ship tight formation, or just joining the 200 mph club.
We will hear from Steve Ashby, Jerry Fischer, Brian Michael, Martin Walker and other RVers on all things RV. Other RV builders and pilots will be there to answer any questions. If the weather permits, they may even have some demo flights. This will be a program you will not want to miss!
The March 1st program will begin at 10:30 AM in the EAA 690 Hangar, 690 Airport Road, Lawrenceville, GA (Briscoe Field) and is open to the public. An all you care to eat Pancake (and eggs and sausage) Breakfast and/or refreshments are available beginning at 8:00 AM. Ample aircraft and auto parking is available. For additional information contact Joel Levine, 404-314-7573 or email@example.com
EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 150 members, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our Aviation Explorer group, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor.
Our technical counselors are some of the best in the business, and willingly donate their time to homebuilders, as they progress through the various phases of constructing an aircraft. We have pilots with a wide variety of experience, from former airline and military pilots to general aviation pilots with a private certificate. “Hangar flying” is a fun part of the mix, and our facility is often used for aircraft annual inspections, meetings, special events, and training. We also have an extensive array of aviation tools for loan to members, and a library full of aviation information.
Come join us on the first Saturday of every month at the hangar to enjoy a $6 Pancake Breakfast, and to learn more about EAA 690.
