Canadians Still Basking in the Glow of AirVenture 2022

By Ian Brown, EAA 657159, Editor - Bits and Pieces, Board member - EAA Canada Council


October 5, 2022 – It seems such a short time ago that we were all together in Oshkosh. We have a very nice article about one person’s camping experience this month. John Weir describes his discovery of how to make tent camping a LOT more comfortable. Stalwart author Mike Davenport gives us a cautionary tale about why there are certain rules about hand-propping, and John Wyman has continued his thought-provoking series with a second episode of his problems with user fees. You may not agree with everything he says, but that’s why his series is called “Ruffled Feathers.” He certainly highlights a growing problem with the rising costs of flying for the owners of small aircraft and the knock-on effect that will have for the supply of future airline pilots, and has had in other countries.

As you read this, now is a great time to start thinking about writing an article or two. Your fellow readers want to hear what you have to say. Why not start now, today? Our pipeline of articles is never backed up so we can virtually promise you’ll be published. It could be anything from a unique flying experience to that widget you installed and love using. How about a simple article about fixing something on your aircraft? Articles are needed the middle of the month before they are published, so if you’re reading this early in October, you have about a week to send me something to newsletter.eaacc@gmail.com. Please don’t spend any time at all on formatting. It usually has to be undone to fit our standards. It’s the words that matter. I can check your spelling. That’s what editors do. Thanks in advance.

A special thanks this month to Mike Davenport, John Wyman, and John Weir for their excellent articles.
