Congratulations to Carson on the purchase of his first airplane! He bought Curtis' Luscombe and is already making plans to polish it and spruce up the interior. Carson plans to use his new plane for camping and local fun.

Just found out that Mike Terpstra and I had our airplanes photgraphed by satellite as we were parked at Airventure 2011 ! If you go to Google Earth or Google Maps and zoom into Whittman Regional Airport at Oshkosh you will find our planes parked among the thousands of airplanes there.
Here is the link: Whittman Regional Airport satellite image from Google Maps
Here is a photo to save you some time.

Football and TFRs!
Notice Number: NOTC3215
The FAA would like to remind pilots to check for Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) now that the Division I and Professional Football Seasons have gotten into full swing. Blanket NOTAM 9/5151 is in place; however, due to the ever changing times and locations of games it is impossible to publish anything more specific. Blanket NOTAM 9/5151 addresses the requirements for a TFR to be activated for sporting events, but it is incumbent upon the pilot to know if his route of flight will be affected. Flight Service can only refer pilots to the NOTAM since they have no way of knowing if games were delayed, in overtime, or cancelled. Air Traffic will ensure IFR flights are clear of TFR airspace, but VFR pilots are only advised on a time permitting basis, unless they ask. This web site, Airspace.nifc.gov, gives the TFR locations on a map, among other neat information for pilots.

Welcome to the new Chapter 90 website! It functions very similar to the old site except that it is integrated into the National EAA website and costs the chapter absolutely nothing! If you would like an account so you can write articles please contact your webmaster, Scott VanArtsdalen.
