EAA Chapter 729

Columbus, IN

Notes from the President's Desk

With full spring type weather being experienced, I’m excited to say April is going to bring a double-header of events!  Earlier in the year, Chapter 729 BOD published a calendar of initiatives providing everyone time to place them on their calendar…..and we hope you did!  

Our first event for April and first fly-out for 207 will be Thursday, April 20 to Rough River State Park Airport (2I3) in Kentucky.  Depending on aircraft, this trip will be approximately a 1 hour flight just as spring is getting green!  Given the time zone change, we will depart BAK terminal at 11:00 AM to arrive 2I3 at 11:00 AM for lunch.  As previous fly-out’s, we will be matching aircraft and passengers to fill available seats. So for those wanting to participate (both aircraft and passengers), please email me at (blstinebring@comcast.net) and I will match up participants.  Previous experience has shown plenty of aircraft and seats, so please don’’t be shy!  And aircraft owners outside Chapter 729 are welcome to join us if you want to invite.  Fingers crossed for a fair weather day!!

Welcome to 2018 and trust all had a
safe and enjoyable holiday!
We capped off 2017 with an enjoyable
dinner at Rawhide Ranch in Nashville with 28
attendees. A light covering of snow provided
an uplifting holiday atmosphere, where Dave
Timbers was presented a plaque recognizing
his long commitment to Chapter 729. Dave
has been a part of Seymour’s Freeman
Municipal Airport starting in mid-1940’s, as
well as Chapter 729 member since formation.
To this day, Dave continues to support and
give back to aviation in humble ways. A true
friend to general aviation, local community and
Chapter 729......THANK YOU Dave!
Chapter 729 BOD met early January to
start building 2018 calendar (see list on last
page), which will be posted on website shortly
(www.729.eaachapter.org). Goal is to build a
variety of initiatives and enhance traditional
initiatives, in an effort to provide a robust and
(hopefully) multi-interested calendar. Of
course, all is anchored around our primary
initiative - Young Eagles Flights!
One continued goal from 2017 is to
grow membership. We met our goal of
growing by 4 new members (total 52) in 2017
and have spoken with 2 individuals joining in
2018. We’re growing, which a number of EAA
Chapters cannot say, and is contributed to our
members and BOD in building, supporting and
creating a growing organization! Thank You
for your efforts!!

And as a friendly reminder, dues for
2018 are $20/family and now due. Please
contact treasurer Larry Morlock.
As a continuation of building EAA
Chapter 729, establishing a 501C3 is being
researched. Though in its infancy of
discussion/research, expect more information
soon. If any input, please reach out to me
(blstinebring@comcast.net).
We have finally landed a tour of Comlux
(https://www.comlux.com), which is based
at Indianapolis International Airport.
Comlux (an international company) is an
innovator in the large to very large business jet
segment, providing luxury engineered cabin
completions, upgrades and refurbishments.
Think Boeing and Airbus! We will have tours of
the engineering department, various supporting
shops (metal, wood, leather, etc.) and hangar
floor. This is a peak into the high-end segment
of general aviation and promises to be quite
educational.
To accommodate the Comlux schedule,
our tour is set for Thursday, January 25
@3:30pm. After the tour, we will travel
to Taxman Brewing Co. which is located in
Bargersville, www.taxmanbrewing.com) A
family friendly restaurant allows you to include
younger students interested in aviation to tour
Comlux.....please consider doing! We will be
extending invitations to Columbus High School
students building the RV-12 as well.
An email invitation (Evite) will be sent
shortly, but we need replies by Monday,
January 22. This is so name tags can be
created prior to visit... a Comlux requirement.
If any questions on Comlux visit, please reach
out to me asap at blstinebring@comcast.net or
812/350-9771.
Again, an exciting year is brewing and
hope you can join us on multiple adventures
and educational opportunities.
