EAA Chapter 96



EAA96 Members,
I hope that you are all doing well during these difficult times. Although we cannot meet this month as a group in the hangar, I would like to feed our common aviation interests with a video conference as the general meeting on July 11 at 11:00 AM.
This meeting will feature a presentation on Bede kit building. The presenter is Alvin Voigt, an engineer for a big airplane company, who will explain about the history of Bede aircraft and his ongoing process of selecting and acquiring his Bede 4 kit.
If you would like to join this meeting via Webex, and have not previously replied, please send an email of your interest to me at president@eaa96.org. Those that reply to me will receive a personal invitation and instructions. No prior experience is required and I will provide additional help to anyone that would like it.
Please note that a telephone dial in is also available for those that may not have a computer connection available.

Rhon Williams
