EAA Chapter 63’s Ray Scholar is a Pilot!

 

With clear skies and calm winds, Chapter 63’s first Ray Scholar, Megan Lokstet, became a pilot on December 10, 2021.  While juggling university classes, a part time job and flight training, Megan was motivated and dedicated to become a pilot.  Megan has become an enthusiastic ambassador for the EAA and Chapter 63, assisting in Young Eagles flight coordination and successfully organizing a Young Eagles Day, full of aviation instruction and activities.

On behalf of the Executive and membership of EAA Chapter 63, we congratulate Megan and look forward to seeing her around Lyncrest!

The concrete pad in front of the fuel pumps will be useable by aircraft and light vehicles on Monday November 1, 2021. A big thank you to Harold and all those involved in completing our new fuel pad!


The recent rains have made the ground around the pad quite soft, so please check before you taxi on it. Any ruts that are made now will have to be endured until spring, so it is better to err on the side of caution. We are experiencing freezing temperatures during the night, so fueling early the morning while the ground is still frozen is ideal.

The EAA Chapter 63  Youth Workshop was a great success! A big thank you to Megan for organizing the event, and all the volunteers that helped to give the kids a great day full of learning, and fun. The kids learned about how an aircraft flies, how the controls work, how the instruments work, and all about a compass. They got to do a walk around a real airplane, as well as try flying in the simulator.  The day ended with a crafts challenge to build an airplane out of common items. Overall it was an amazing workshop, thank you everyone who attended!
