Welcome to the EAA 1358 February eNewsletter

New Meeting Location

At the invitation of Dothan Regional Airport Director Art Morris, Larry Turnage and William Castlen visited the Airport Training Room today and found it to be an outstanding location to hold our IMC Club and EAA Chapter meetings.  So, a “command decision” was made and we shifted the venue for our upcoming Saturday, February 10th meetings.

Location: about one block due west of Aero-One Aviation.  Driving northwest on Flightline Drive, turn left (west) at Broadway and go one block to Atlantic and turn left.  For our meetings, we will put out the green “FAA Safety Seminar” signs to show the way.
