AEFCO Students - Will Work To Fly
You've given them Young Eagle flights, you've worked with them at Young Eagle rallies or other chapter events like the In Their Honor air show last year, or the work party just last month. They are the young people learning to fly through the programs offered by the Aviation Education Foundation of Colorado (AEFCO) here at Meadow Lake Airport.
As summer is approaching, many of them are looking for work and they are not picky. If you have some yard or garden work at home that needs done or if you need help getting your hangar cleaned out or your plane washed and polished, please contact Richard Martin by phone 719-683-6587 (home), 719-352-5895 (cell) or email. They will do anything.
These are announcements that you'll find on the new "Announcements" page:
Please take some time to review.
Work Party - Saturday, April 30th - The shelving is up and loaded down with all kinds of stuff. The main room downstairs has been cleaned out with the exception of the desk. John Lingwall and Dub Wiltrout attached casters to the display case so we can move it in and out of the hangar has needed to sell merchandise. Luke Billingsley and Tyler Wilson from AEFCO joined us. Those young legs can crawl about anywhere. We did a lot of clean up, throw-out, big improvement. THANKS TO EVERYONE!
We still have a lot of work to do upstairs. Richard did reset and caulk some of the windows upstairs but we have a lot left to fix on the 30th.
Please email to let us know you'll come help and bring bring tools - hammers, drills, screw guns, etc.
We'll meet at the MLAA Hangar at 10:00 AM.
Event Display - You will remember that wood airplane that's been in the hangar and we frequently have to move out of the way? We want to turn that into a display that we can set out for the YE rallies and take to the air show. We need to do some restoration and painting. Let's put "EAA Chapter 72 - Young Eagles" on one side of the fuselage and "Aviation Education Foundation" on the other.
Bendix/King KY97A radio. Checked out by a radio shop and was assured that it works fine. I will guarantee it to be in working order. This is a really nice Transceiver. Radio can be bought new for @ $4000, used ones seen on Ebay sell for $1200. If interested, I would take $1000. This includes the plug and the box/tray that it slides into.
