Results of Special Election

Due to the recent resignation of John Morgan as our Vice President we held a special election at the Breakfast Saturday morning.  We elected Brian Michael to succeed John as our Vice President for the remainder of his term.We had two members on the ballot to fill the At-Large slot that Brian vacated, Duane Huff and Hugh Colton.  Duane defeated Hugh 37 -10 in that election so Duane will fill the remainder of Brian's vacated At-Large position.


 

Piet and RV Photo's

Both the Pietenpol and RV-12 projects are moving forward at great pace.  The chapter youth members are nearing completion of the build portion of the wings, ailerons and tail group. The next step is to complete the fuselage under the guidance of the mentors and start the covering process under the guidance of Duane Huff. 

The RV fuselage is moving along well with several issues overcome. Before long it will be matted with the empennage structure. You will know it when airplane noises emanate from the Bishop Educational Center. In the meantime check out the photos of both projects on the website and on Facebook.

About EAA 690

EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our Aviation Explorer group, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor.

Our technical counselors are some of the best in the business, and willingly donate their time to homebuilders, as they progress through the various phases of constructing an aircraft. We have pilots with a wide variety of experience, from former airline and military pilots to general aviation pilots with a private certificate. “Hangar flying” is a fun part of the mix, and our facility is often used for aircraft annual inspections, meetings, special events, and training. We also have an extensive array of aviation tools for loan to members, and a library full of aviation information.

Come join us on the first Saturday of every month at the hangar to enjoy a $6 Pancake Breakfast, and to learn more about EAA 690.
