AirVenture Wheels Are Turning, Delightful Flight Stories

Ian Brown, EAA 657159, Editor - Bits and Pieces


December, 2022 – This month, we have a very nice article about Scott Knowlton's attempt to connect his friend and manager with his childhood family aircraft, a J-3 Cub. This iconic aircraft may have been loved and admired by more pilots that any other aircraft. Even your editor did a couple of hours, albeit as a very interested passenger, while his daughter was doing her taildragger time. We might even have another J-3 Cub article next month, from a different part of the country. Do you have a beloved aircraft that you'd like to share with your fellow readers? We also have a quirky story about Mike Davenport's trip and tractor ride.

We are starting a countdown to AirVenture series this month, written by our EAA Canada Council chair, Raquel Lincoln, called 'Canadian Countdown to AirVenture 2023.' This month, the first in the series is a call-out for Canadians planning to be at AirVenture that may have a presentation they'd like to make, or suggestions for what they'd like to hear. Hopefully by next month, we'll have more information on what our tent will look like. Once it's finalized we'll also let you know about our Canadian Breakfast special guest speaker and other events that are in the very early planning stages right now.

As usual, I'll take this opportunity to encourage you to submit articles to the newsletter. We always need new authors, and it doesn't have to be a lifetime commitment, or even a linguistic masterpiece. Thanks to all who submitted items this month: Raquel, Bill, Scott, and Mike. Anyone with the urge to submit something can send it to me at newsletter.EAACC@gmail.com. We'd love to get to the point of saying “Whoa, that's too much for one month” but in my 10 years as editor (or is it tenure? Actually it's both) we've never got to the point of having too much content for one month, so don't be shy.
