I wanted to share this thank you note we received from Tom & Deb Schmid
When the RV-12 project began it was decided to use Slack (http://www.slack.com) as the means of communications between members. Slack can be used on all smart phone platforms as well as one's home computer. We recently decided to rename the Team on Slack to EAA690 and have created channels that can be used by many groups within the chapter for instant communications. We encourage you to create an account at Slack and request that you be added to the Slack team.You may do so by sending the email address you use to register with Slack to firstname.lastname@example.org
Both the Pietenpol and RV-12 projects are moving forward at great pace. The chapter youth members are nearing completion of the build portion of the wings, ailerons and tail group. The next step is to complete the fuselage under the guidance of the mentors and start the covering process under the guidance of Duane Huff.
The RV fuselage is moving along well with several issues overcome. Before long it will be matted with the empennage structure. You will know it when airplane noises emanate form the Bishop Educational Center. In the meantime check out the photos of both projects on the website and on Facebook.
EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 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”, the Ford Tri-Motor and Ron Alexander's DC-3.
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.
