Chapter News
EAA Chapter 59 (Waco, Texas) President Kenny Grisham shared the following insights on aviation, diversity, and EAA chapters. Please feel free to share Kenny's thoughts in your chapter's newsletter or website.

"Top 10 Pilot Killers." Gene Benson has been an FAA aviation safety counselor and flight instructor and has more than 35 years of experience. Gene has generously agreed to share this article with us in the hopes of improving aviation safety. You might read it and think, "I'd never do that," but too many pilots each year "do that" with sometimes tragic results. For more safety-related articles and tips, visit his website, www.GeneBenson.com.

You may have heard some information about the new offer from EAA that provides a free flight lesson to any Young Eagle who completes part one of the Sporty's online Complete Pilot Training Course. The First Flight Lesson is part of an overall EAA Flight Plan designed to help Young Eagles move from the right seat to the left seat. Brian O'Lena, EAA Youth Programs manager, recently held a webinar on the topic and posted a PowerPoint presentation you can provide to your chapter. You can watch the webinar here and download the PowerPoint presentation here.
This month's featured newsletters come from EAA Chapter 129 (Bloomington/Normal, Illinois) and EAA Chapter 216 (Cross Keys, New Jersey). EAA Chapter 129's newsletter chronicles a very busy summer (so far) and includes some wonderful photos and a first flight report. The Cross Keys Flyer for August includes a report on AirVenture and an interesting member profile. Thanks to both chapters for sharing their newsletters.
