Wednesday, January 15, 2014 – Chapter 25 Meeting – Instructor Dan Lutgen, and two students, Brandon and Leah, from the Canby High School Aviation Dept. will tell us how they won the General Aviation Manufacturer Association (GAMA) virtual aviation design challenge which earned them an expenses paid trip to the Glasair manufacturing plant in Arlington, WA where they built two airplanes in two weeks under Glasair’s two weeks to taxi (TWTT) program.
In addition, Dr. Randle S. Corfman is coming to teach us “Survival Medicine for Aviators”, and about the newly formed Minnesota Pilots Association.
