GREETINGS FROM OSHKOSH
Today is Monday, the last day of the big show. There are a lot of shadows
on the ground where airplanes were parked or where people were camped.
It's beginning to return to normal. They will soon reverse the flow of
traffic on the roads surrounding the airport to their normal direction and
all the lines at the local restaurants will diminish and all the wildlife
that reside at the airport, ie. the rabbits, deer and birds, will no
longer be so confused. But we here at the EAA Air Academy we will still be
The current session of cadets will continue through next Sunday. Our last
group left last Friday and this group arrived Saturday morning. They will
remain on the flight line through today and go into the classroom and the
hands-on shop tomorrow, (Tues.) Each group numbers in the low 40's. A
little larger in numbers than what we normally have been doing. The demand
The program has been in existence now for 18 years and the total count
of graduates is over 3,000. That includes the camps for younger cadets and
adults. This year has been one of the most gratifying. We are beginning to
see the fruits of our labors. One of our alumni returned this year as a
crew member on an EA6-B Prowler and brought the entire crew of 4 up for a
visit with our current class. The class enjoyed it very much and asked
some really pertinent questions. It ended up being an hour and a half
question and answer program. Incidentally this is the same airplane and
crew that flew the slot position in the formation of prowlers that did the
fly-by at the all star baseball game in Seattle. They are based at NAS
Whidbey Island, Washington.
Another interesting aside concerning Seattle, Washington, is that
the Boeing 307 came to OSH. for a visit. The crew of three experimental
test pilots from Boeing are acquainted with my room-mate Brian Lee. Seems
he has written up some test profiles for these guys for the Boeing
airplanes. Brian invited them to dinner with our group one evening and
they spent about three hours talking with the group after dinner about
what it is like being a test pilot for Boeing. The 307 is the first
pressurized air transport type airplane. There were only 10 built and this
is the last surviving example. It belongs to the National Space Museum and
is on loan to the Boeing Museum and will be returned to Washington D.C.
when the new facility at Dulles is finished.
While I have Washington D.C. on my mind, I'd like to tell you about the
AIAA which is headquartered there. The AIAA is the American Institute of
Aeronautics and Astronautics. What they are doing is sponsoring a group of
high school students that will graduate in the year 2003. The people in
the group are selected by virtue of an essay contest, the winners are
selected from all over the world. This group of 22 was a part of this
year's EAA Air Academy class. They were all included in the first session.
They had already attended Space Camp and had a tour of Houston Flight
Center as well as The Boeing plant and the Museum of Flight in Seattle. In
the future they will attend the Paris Air Show and are scheduled to be in
attendance at the
commemorative flight of the Wright Flyer at Kittyhawk on Dec. 17, 2003.
I'm proud to say that they were very favorably impressed by the
presentation of our Air Academy as were the administrators of the program.
This was an exciting group of youngsters to work with.
Another exciting group that came to visit me was a group of Chapter 54
members. Tim Reberg and his two boys showed up for lunch on Sat. as did
Marlon Gunderson and Nick Stolley. Tim and the boys drove down with their
camper and Ole and Nick flew down in the Piper J-5. I was on stage for an
Air Academy presentation on Thurs. evening and I saw a Piper J-5 parked
over in the antique aircraft parking area and thought maybe that that was
Marlon's. From that distance I thought that he must have cleaned it up
really well. Turns out that it was a different one. Matter of fact I think
it won the Grand Champion trophy. (The different one, not Marlon's.) It
was good to see some faces from home after having been here for so long.
Jim Olson and his wife stopped over for lunch one day too, earlier in the
I don't know anything about a program for the monthly meeting as I'm kind
of isolated here at OSH. and I will not be able to schedule a board
meeting for the normal time as I won't be back in time. I think Tim Reberg
has an organizational meeting scheduled to discuss the fly-in breakfast
arrangements which I also will not be able to attend. Do the best you can
without me and I will see you when I get back. At that time I will still
have plenty of time to order and purchase the necessary supplies for the

54 Fundraiser Kickoff.
This note was sent two weeks ago to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chapter 54 has an enviable set of characteristics among EAA Chapters.
We have active, involved leaders and members, a great small airport
near a major metro area, members with a large variety of interesting
experimental, antique, classic, and contemporary aircraft, and a local
aviation environment that has much to offer.
Chapter 54 recently achieved the historic feat of establishing its own
building structure on the field at Lake Elmo Airport, which ushers in a
new era for the club and establishes a greater sense of permanence for it.
There remains much work to be done on the Chapterhouse to make it the
comfortable and functional gathering place for our members that we hope it
can be. We have gotten as far as we have with it due to the foresight,
commitment, and work of a few members, and due to the financially secure
condition that the chapter was in from successful flight breakfasts in
years past and from good financial management.
To finish the remaining work on the building without depleting the
chapter's funds that are earmarked for regular operating expenses,
Academy scholarships, and other public service work which hopefully
establishes the club as a 501c(3) non-profit organization, the Chapter is
soliciting donations from it's membership for a building completion fund.
This fund will be used for the finishing materials required to make the
building a functioning Chapter centerpiece that we are all proud of. This
work includes painting, electrical and interior work, and the building of
a deck and stairs for the structure.
We have established the goal of raising $4500 to complete the building.
The chapter has about 90 members so you can do the math to see what kind
donation would be sharing the load equitably. We have received $100
commitments from a handful of members before the fundraising effort was
kicked off, so we hope that others will be inspired to follow their lead
and pitch in.
In recognition of any donation that you are able to make, the Chapterhouse
will feature a prominent shrine of some sort in your honor naming you as a
charter member of the building completion effort to be admired by all
posterity. $100 contributors will be identified as gold(en) charter
members. The best reward for your donation, however, will be a comfortable
and attractive clubhouse that will foster the growth and health of the
chapter in the future and reflect the commitment that we all have to
each other share our interest in aviation.
The Chapter's 501c(3) tax-exempt status has been applied for but not yet
approved. Once (and if) approved this year, your donation can be claimed
a tax deductible contribution. While approval is not a certainty, the
chapter is fairly confident that it will get approval. If tax
deductibility is an important consideration for you, you can just send a
pledge for now, and make the payment once the chapter has 501c(3)
approval. If you choose to pledge, please indicate whether you would be
willing to make the donation by year-end even if we have not received
501c(3) approval, as we would like to conclude the fundraising this year.

And speaking of our very own Chapter 54, last night at
Theater in the Woods, I had the extreme privilege of accepting the
award, Outstanding Achievement for Chapter 54 member Jim Montague. There
were 13 recipients
for this award throughout the entire country. Jim Montague is in good
company, right up there with the very best of the very best. A long
overdue, well deserved recognition. CONGRATULATIONS JIM!

This just in from Chapter member Danny Bergstrom:
At long last my hangar is almost completed. The floor and aprons are
finished and we have electricity to the main electric panel. I am still
using extension cord to run the hangar doors...but they do go up and down.
The electrician should be done in about 2 weeks.
I have my Spezio and a Cessna 172 in the hangar at this time. There is
still room for a small homebuilt (RV, Tailwind or Titan size aircraft).

This was sent by Chapter Member Jim Montague:
The Boeing 307 did a flyover at Lake Elmo on Sunday, to impress the
folks at Mark Holliday‘s Swift party. This airplane was the world’s
first pressurized airliner, and was built just prior to WWII. Designers
added a big pressurized fuselage to a B-17 bomber wing. The 307s were very
reliable and flew thousands of hours in wartime service. There were only
10 or 11 built, and this is the only survivor. With four big Wright 1820
radials churning, it makes a very impressive fly-by.
After the war, they were outdated, and replaced by the newer DC-4’s
and DC-6’s and Constellations and Stratocruisers. The Stratocruisers
were similar to the Boeing 307, in that they were based on a B-29 bomber
wing (with R4360 engines).
Charlie Hoover saw it parked at Oshkosh, and even Charlie Hoover (who
owns two of the most beautiful polished airplanes in the world) says that
the polish job looks good up close.
|Nick and Marlon’s
As told by Marlon Gunderson
Nick Stolley and I headed to Oshkosh Thursday afternoon, July 26. The
flight down was in beautiful blue skies with some scattered small fair
weather cumulus. We flew over Mondovi and refueled in Black River Falls on
the way down. Fisk had their hands full after the airshow and the pipeline
from Ripon to OSH was packed when we arrived at about 7pm. Fisk was asking
about every 4th airplane to return to Ripon and get back in line to get
better separation; fortunately we weren't one of them. We had several
aircraft cut in line in front of us between Ripon and Fisk and even one on
base approach to 36L.

In addition to putting the ACC sign in the window for the ground crews, we
also indicated "Antique, 1941" and "Row 75" so that we
wouldn't get sent a mile south, which is where they were putting everyone
else including nice showplanes. They sent a scooter to look for a spot in
the antique area, which was very full, and 5 minutes later we were
following the scooter to row 63, about 5 rows south of Theater in the
Woods. Thursday night the camping and parking areas were at about
capacity, but aircraft started bailing out Friday and by Friday pm the
antique area was a third empty and kept getting more empty through the
weekend. I think the Tuesday start doesn't work as well as a Wednesday
start for keeping the aircraft there for the weekend.
We set up camp under our wing (yes the J5 will haul a tent, two bags, two
ground pads, two knapsacks, tiedowns, and two pilots), looked around at
some of the fine aircraft in the Antique area, and found the only cafe
left serving food at 9pm at the Red Barn. Chuck Yeager was just wrapping
up his talk at the Theater when we returned to the tent, and we turned in
early. We were up with the light at 5:15am and it seemed like the day was
well under way when The Yodeler started his 7am good morning tirade on the
We quickly learned that there was another J5A just a few rows North of us
that was an award contender. It was owned by a guy from Tennessee and
rebuilt at a shop in Wisconsin, looking better than new, soon to be seen
on an EAA magazine cover near you. I saw a camera crew interviewing the
owner and rebuilder later in the day, and met Steve Krog there--one of the
VAA directors, Cub Club editor, and fellow J5A owner/aficionado. Upon my
return home, I was happy to read on the AirVenture website that it had
indeed taken the Antique Grand Champion award. I look forward to the
magazine issue that introduces readers to this lesser known Cub. If I
didn't like my J5 so much, I might now be in a good position to play the
J5A spot market.
At noon on Friday, I ran into my brother Milt who had flown in that
morning with his three young boys in his PA-16 Clipper, formerly owned by
Jerry Sarracco of Chapter 54, and found he was camped just 5 rows South of
Some of the more memorable things we saw were two B1B bombers doing
formation flybys, some fast with swept wings, and some slow with extended
wings; a Boeing Stratoliner four engine taildragger airliner, and the Vimy
Vickers whose 700hp produces a 70 mph cruise. I went to the FlyMarket even
though I already had a supply of Billy-Bob teeth. While I was gone someone
left a note in my J5 saying they had flown my J5 during '94-97 at the
tailwheel school in Prescott, AZ, was glad to see it here and wished me
Friday night we enjoyed the music and comedy act of Mike Snider from The
Grand Ol' Opry at the Theater in the woods, but I missed comedian Rod
Machado and Balloonist Bertrand Piccard on Saturday night to visit with a
cousin who had flown his Navion in from Montana. The ornithopter, complete
with wingwalker, made an impromptu flight through the campground while I
was there, which was a big hit with the kids.
We scrubbed plans for a fly-out to Shawano on Saturday morning due to
showers. Instead I waited out the rain at a Poly-Fiber forum on fabric
maintenance/repair and learned something about Carnauba wax and
plastisizers, and I picked up a free WI Aeronautical Map at the Wisconsin
tourism booth while wandering through Building A. Nick and I visited Bill
Schanks at the EAA Academy and sponged a free lunch from the academy. We
saw Tim Reberg there too. One of the Academy counselors overheard Nick
talking aerobatics and offered up a free pass into the VIP area so that
Nick could rub shoulders with the aerobatic pilots during the airshow.
We intended to depart early Sunday a.m., but high humidity and fog
grounded us for the morning. The fog provided the moisture for cleaning
the airplane fabric though, and the time to do it. VFR flight didn't open
and then we had a 45 minute taxi to takeoff among the hundreds of VFR
departures backlogged. We stopped in Wautoma just 30 minutes out to refuel
(hotdogs and 100LL), and watched a P51 pilot giving rides at $500 a pop to
the able-walleted. We climbed to 4500' into smooth clear air above a
broken ceiling between Wautoma and Black River Falls, and then dropped
down for sight seeing in the farming and bluff country between BRF and
Wabasha, then followed the river back home to Redwing and on in. To top
the trip off, on return to 21D I found my hangar wall posts all set in
concrete and ready for framing; the contractor had been at work while I
was gone. As Norm Peterson is fond of saying, it doesn't get much better
We received this information from Marlon Gunderson of our Chapter’s
Building Fund Committee.
The current status is:
checks received: $700.00
pledges received: $700.00
Other donations to the building: Dick Straight--entry steps, David
Fiebiger--engineering drawings, Tom Brown--A/C unit, ...are some of the
stuff that I've heard about.

|AirVenture - An
By Art Edhlund
There are many justifications for attendance at the Oshkosh AirVenture:
close-up looks at interesting aircraft, the latest
developments in equipment, the daily air show, story swapping with pilots
from everywhere, hundreds of forums on everything aeronautical -
technical, humorous, and historic. I realized at this my 28th visit to the
Oshkosh AirVenture that my main reason for attendance was to find out
things I don't know. There are a lot of things in that category. Some are
simple curiosity, some are how to fly better and safer, others are fix-its
for old problems. This year I explored a new category, how to help my
Chapter. Where better to get this than at the 'head shed.'
I am excited about the improvements Chapter 54 has been achieving in the
past few years. Capped in 2001 by a permanent 'place'- the club house. So
I attended a roundtable discussion at the Chapters office on the flight
line on "Clubhouses and Hangars." This was one of 12 roundtables
held during the week. While there were only ten participants in my group,
the discussion was hosted at five different times during the week. Bill
Hanna (whom we met at last years Chapters event) was the discussion
There were immediate questions about the implications of the Chapter’s
501c(3) tax status. Bill deferred these questions to another roundtable
series specifically on that question. This discussion was intended as a
primer on clubhouse and hangars. The other participants ranged from
chapters that: all ready own a hangar or clubhouse to those who only have
The first thing considered was WHY? The facility depends on the kind of
activities a Chapter engages in, the locale it serves, the size of its
membership, and other factors unique to a Chapter. The chapter's mission
statements and objectives need to be reviewed thoughtfully to assure that
owning a building will be compatible with the chapters long-term
direction. A vision "to own a chapter clubhouse" is not properly
framed. A better question is "how would owning a clubhouse help meet
For Chapters populated with many active pilots with many aircraft,
aircraft storage and provisions for flight planning should drive the
building plan. Other Chapters are focused on aircraft construction and
their facility may want to be tailored more around the concepts of a
workshop. If providing aviation education dominates a Chapter's
activities, classroom features will need to be reflected in its facility.
Will the Chapter also sponsor fly-ins and other activities that bring in
the public? Most chapters are a mixture of all of the above activities as
well as engaging in social and family activities. Four important basic
functions are involved in any EAA Chapter: AIRMANSHIP, CRAFTSMANSHIP,
CITIZENSHIP, FELLOWSHIP A Chapter's vision and mission will change over
time. A Chapter will also discover that owning a building enables new
had not engaged in previously. A degree of flexibility should be planned
The next major topic discussed was: WHAT SHOULD IT LOOK LIKE? Once the
need and will of the Chapter exists to own a building, a Building
Committee should be appointed. This establishes a process and
responsibility to translate the Chapter's needs into specific plans and
specifications. The Committee should also be charged with overall
administration of the project through its completion - a very important
group. Give the process sufficient time for ideas to be stimulated: good
ideas cannot be scheduled and frequently are the product of bad ideas.
Share the alternatives with Chapter membership. Most often, the final plan
will end up as a hybrid derived from the features of several different
Some Chapters have the good fortune to find a suitable building that can
be purchased or donated. Do not overlook the opportunities that an
existing building may offer. If the building is serviceable, the Chapter
will begin to enjoy the benefits of owning a facility immediately
(construction projects take a long time to complete.) Check with local
building authorities and get quotes from
contractors if necessary. This is a very practical route to acquiring a
Chapter building, just try to avoid the bigger surprises that might occur.
WHO WILL DO THE WORK?
A major factor in the final cost for a facility is the amount of volunteer
expertise and labor within the Chapter membership. Many Chapter members
will have basic carpentry skills. There may also be members that are
capable of doing electrical or mechanical work as well. It's important to
assess the skills available within the Chapter membership and their
willingness to work on the project cost.
There is a downside to the use of Chapter resources. Some phases of a
construction project need to follow a fairly disciplined schedule:
volunteers are not always available when needed regardless of how willing
they may be. Use of volunteer labor should also be understood in the
context of local ordinances and building codes.
There is much work involved in a construction project and it can extend
over a considerable time period. Another potentially negative
consideration regarding Chapter volunteer labor is the risk of burnout.
The pressure to keep the project moving, get things
done and make sure everything is right can impact some conscientious
volunteers worse than a regular job. No project is worth losing members -
we all joined EAA for fun and the sport of aviation, not to build
buildings. Don't overdo or exploit your willing workers.
The building committee should perform a thorough assessment of the
internal resources of the Chapter membership and develop a project work
plan that takes advantage of the expertise and abilities available. Work
parties that are well organized can accomplish much of the work involved
and also have fun. No organized work schedule, no materials on hand, no
supervision or direction all lead to disgruntled volunteers and a project
that is at great risk.
A Project Manager should be appointed. This person should be responsible
to the Building committee (preferably a member.) The Project Manager has
day-to-day responsibility for overseeing the project and should be the
single-point contact for all interfaces
with contractors, inspectors, etc. He should have authority to make detail
decisions about the project and be able to make payments. This is not a
weekend and evening job. The person appointed should have a degree of
personal schedule flexibility and some experience with building projects -
anyone who has had a house built is a good candidate.
PAPERWORK, PAPERWORK, PAPERWORK
When a general contractor is used for the project, the contractor handles
the many permits and inspections, and the process is transparent to the
Chapter. If a Chapter assumes responsibility for managing the
construction, several reviews, permits and inspections must be obtained.
Given the complexities of building codes and local ordinances, this can be
a complex and sometimes
The airport governing body is the first to be consulted and approve the
plans. The plans must also be submitted to the local building authority
for approval prior to the issuance of a building permit. During
construction several inspections will be required.
In addition to the construction documentation process, a deed of property
lease must be secured and the Chapter-owned facility needs to be properly
entered on the tax roles. Generally, as a non-profit corporation, the
Chapter should not have to pay property taxes. This may not happen
automatically, however. The Chapter may have to appeal to the local tax
assessors' office to establish the tax exemption - not a simple task.
As the project progresses, insurance should be secured. The value of the
asset will increase quickly and should be protected. The EAA Chapter
insurance is liability insurance for Chapter activities - it does not
cover the physical structure and its contents.
HOW TO PAY FOR IT
Clearly, the financial assets of the Chapter going into a building project
are a major determining factor to proceed. Unless the Chapter has
accumulated a significant portion of the money necessary to fund the
project, it probably should not proceed. Several
options are available to the Chapter to fully fund a project.
A mortgage can be obtained from conventional financial institutions.
Committing to a long-term financial obligation for the Chapter should not
be made without full consultation of the entire Chapter membership.
The Chapter should not overlook the potential of a financial arrangement
with the local airport authority or FBO. Given all the positive aspects of
an EAA facility on the airport, they may be willing to underwrite the
project or even build the facility and lease it to the Chapter.
Many Chapter members may be willing to make loans to the Chapter to fund
the project. These loans may be interest-free or at a lower rate than a
commercial loan. This approach can provide significant savings to the
Chapter. A pledging campaign will determine how
much funding can be secured this way. All member loans to the Chapter
should be covered with a written agreement that defines the loan amount,
any interest due and the repayment plan. Care should be exercised to not
allow member loans to be too large and too
long term. If the Chapter owes an individual member a large sum of money
or the loan extends over too many years, problems can arise.
Donations are another source of money to cover the project. This is
especially true if the Chapter has a 501(c)3 tax status. In this case the
donation is tax deductible and can be very favorable for the donor. This
is an especially fruitful area to explore if contractors, building supply
stores and other business can be found who are aviation-minded
individuals. An amazing amount of materials and services can be obtained
in this manner. Just be certain to acknowledge the donors and maybe throw
a "hangar-warming" party on their behalf when the project is
done. A few airplane rides will reward a lot of generosity and maybe even
net some more members.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ITS DONE?
Owning a building will yield many benefits to the Chapter. The Chapter
will have a "home" that helps contribute to its identity - both
internally and to the external world as well. The Chapter will find it can
support many more activities and programs when it
has a permanent facility and equipment. More members are likely to join
the Chapter as a result. A Chapter building is a key enabler toward
meeting many of the Chapters goals and overall mission. However, ownership
also creates some new obligations and issues for the Chapter to manage.
Owning a building creates on-going expenses for the Chapter: insurance,
maintenance and utilities. Establishing a fair rate schedule for leases on
hangar or shop space requires some careful analysis. An EAA Chapter is NOT
a business. Depending on the building
revenues to pay off the mortgage or loans that covered its construction
may be in conflict with the Chapter objectives that motivated its
construction. A different approach should be used to determine how much to
Leasing hangar or shop space is a service to the members. If the rates are
too high, it becomes exploitative and they will go elsewhere. Use of the
Chapter facility should be a benefit to the members - not a premium. On
the other hand, lease rates that are
too low and do not help defray the overall expenses of the facility,
result in the membership at large subsidizing the tenants. It should also
be recognized that the building does provide a benefit to all members and
some portion of the on-going building expense is a legitimate charge to
the chapters general budget. Obviously the middle ground must be found.
Insurance coverage must be maintained - both to protect the Chapter's
assets and cover the risks. Again, the EAA Chapter insurance covers the
liability associated with chapter activities, and if a Chapter owns a
building the rates are higher since the Chapter
will inherently have more activities. Fire and casualty insurance must be
secured independently. Chapter Hangarkeeper's insurance is also available
that provides coverage specific to the storage of aircraft.
Who will mow the grass and fix the leaky faucet? Spontaneous volunteers
will handle many of the maintenance chores, but a process that identifies
work to be done is helpful. Some Chapters appoint a Building Manager to
monitor maintenance and keep a "to do" list posted. The EAA has
a long standing reputation for sponsoring activities that are noted for
their cleanliness. Our EAA facilities need to reflect that same ethic with
good maintenance and grounds keeping. Plan for it.
This was a very informative discussion with everyone contributing ideas.
These notes were taken partly from the discussion guide prepared by Bill
Hanna, EAA Chapter Advisory Council, who conducted the roundtable.
