Sneak Peek: EAA Chapter Video Magazine
Last month chapter leaders received an e-mail with more details on EAA's upcoming Chapter Video Magazine, a new monthly video series created exclusively for the purpose of showing at chapter meetings. Included in that e-mail was a link to download a 4-minute teaser video, which is now available for all to watch.
Beginning May 1, 2013, these 20- to 25-minute videos can be downloaded and shown at chapter meetings to inspire, engage, entertain, and educate members on various aspects of EAA and the broader aviation community. This will include segments such as Project Patrols, Hints for Homebuilders, Volunteer Spotlights, and News from HQ, and feature videos on EAA members who are doing interesting things out in the field.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the upcoming videos you'll see:
Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Van's Aircraft
Follow Chad Jensen, EAA's homebuilt technical specialist and fellow RV-7 builder, as he tours the factory and sees where the magic happens.
Steel Tube Fuselage Construction
Mike Hoy, EAA 505817, lets us look over his shoulder as he builds a steel tube fuselage. This four-part series gives an overview of the process and is packed with hints and tips along the way.
Paul's P-64 Comes Back to Life
The P-64 is not only a rare aircraft in aviation history but an icon in EAA's history. We recently took the aircraft out of the museum and restored it back to flying condition. Watch Paul Poberezny himself bring the 1,200 horses back to life for the first time in more than a quarter century.
Beyond the Ropes: Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose
Tour the inside of Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose. Its size - breathtaking. Its design - a true engineering marvel.
Project Patrol: Douglas World Cruiser
Bob Dempster, EAA 277264, is nearing the first flight of his Douglas World Cruiser replica, a massive biplane standing 14 feet tall that he plans to fly around the world one day.
These videos and many more are coming your way to enrich your monthly meetings and help grow participation in aviation.
Note: If you are a chapter leader and did not receive the informational e-mail on March 28, please let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you to the distribution list.
