A regular meeting of EAA Chapter 1117 was held on Aug, 18, 2018. The club was briefed by Frank Whitley on advanced high performance gliders including the pressurized Perlan Mission II glider. Frank projected many pictures of this aircraft and explained how it might fly above 90,000 feet. Thanks Frank.
Jim Zarlengo briefed the club on his impressions of the 2018 Oshkosh, WI event. He brought many show publications, including a very newsy daily newspaper printed just for the show. These publications show the dedication of the organizers and how much the show pubs have advanced over the years. Thanks Jim.
Chad Cameron also briefed us on his interest in seaplanes, and what the industry, and that community, is doing today. Thanks, Chad.
Minimal business was conducted, as everyone was so interested in the topics of the day. The scholarship committee will meet soon. Truman Sager, Secy.
