    Airplane For Sale Interest in Vari-Eze Projects?

    Our EAA chapter has just been presented with an opportunity to acquire two Vari-Ezes. I have not had a close look at them yet, no photos taken yet, no numerical data. What I do know is that both airframes are complete and have flown safely, they are not crappy but not Gold Lindy winners either...

    EAA Chapter 40 - 10,000th Young Eagle Flight Today!

    Today was a pretty good day for my EAA chapter. We flew our 10,000th Young Eagle in 30 years. One of our members, Denis Oliver, was generous enough to provide a seat for the lucky young girl in his L-39 "Jet1Cup" for this milestone flight ( About Us - JET 1 CUP ). We were even able to leverage...

    Help with Chicago Pneumatic "Corner Hammer" mini rivet gun

    My EAA chapter received a gift of several old boxes of aircraft related stuff. One of the tools included was a Chicago Pneumatic model CP 459 "Corner Hammer", which appears to be a mini tight quarters rivet gun. A standard .401 shank rivet set fits. There is no traditional retainer spring, and...

    Interest in EAA Chapter / Youth / Non-Profit Airplane Build Program

    This is to gauge and quantify whether there is any interest here in a beginner's guidebook to small organization non-profit fundraising, for the purposes of starting or furthering a group E-AB airplane build program. It occurred to me that a large number of EAA chapters might very much want to...

    Parts For Sale Public Service Announcement MC-30 Luciole Project FS

    As I was posting my EAA chapter's airplanes on Barnstormers last night, I happened to see an ad for a partial MC-30 Luciole project - including plans - for sale in Europe. Considering how difficult it is for most people in the USA to begin a Luciole project, this might be a fairly desirable...

    Parts For Sale O-320 D3G Prop Strike Engine Core

    My EAA chapter has received a donation of an O-320 D3G dynafocal engine from a PA-28 Cherokee prop strike incident. This was a high-power prop strike incident on takeoff, not one of those "ehhh...maybe we can straighten it a few thousandths" minor events with a towbar or wheel chock. It has a...

    Longeron Opinion/SWAG Needed

    I know a nice bunch of glazed donut enthusiasts, who are building about a 25 foot static display spaceship, for a movie prop on the new Men in Black 5. One of the parts of this spaceship, the longeron, was originally extruded on another planet, out of 6061-T6 aluminum. We unfortunately can't...

    Baseball Legend Vin Scully Takes America Back to School on Independence Day !

    Sorry, way off topic, but I have to share this with you guys first, before it goes out on radio, TV, etc. It started off as just text content I wrote for an e-mail fundraising campaign, then it became an idea for a radio PSA, then Vin Scully came out of retirement at 95 to record it, then we...
