Introduction

Welcome to the June Flight Plan, our monthly eNewletter from EAA 1358, The Wiregrass Chapter. This month we have a preview of an upcoming meeting, information on logistics behind the Young Eagle Auburn Aviation Camp, a recap from our Young Eagle Flights at the Marianna Fly-IN (with VIDEO) and a list of our upcoming meetings in June.

IMC Meeting Preview

This month, "A Deep Dive into Summer Storm Avoidance" is the topic for our IMC Club meeting. It is about the art of instrument flying. A situation is presented in a thought provoking manner and alternatives are considered.

This meeting will be held on Saturday, June 9th at 9:30 AM at Dothan Regional Airport. Additional Details about the location and a link to a map can be found at the bottom of this email.

Young Eagle Auburn Aviation Camp Logistics

Danny Cherry and Bill Castlen are planning to take our three Young Eagle Auburn Aviation Camp winners to and from Auburn (AUO).  This year’s winners are William Parker, Dawsen Hughes, and Hunter Lynch.  Danny and Bill plan to rendezvous with the Young Eagles and parents at Dothan’s Aero-One Aviation about 1 PM, Sunday, June 17th and takeoff about 1:30 for a 30 - 45-minute flight to Auburn.  They will then drive the youngsters to the Auburn campus for a 3:30 check in to the Camp.

Danny and Bill plan to return the Young Eagles on Friday, June 22nd.  They plan to pick them up at the Campus about 11 AM and arrive back at Dothan’s Aero-One Aviation about 1 PM. Hopefully, Cecil Money will be able to arrange some media coverage of their return.

Recap of the 8th Annual Marianna Fly-In (with VIDEO)

EAA 1358 had an incredible presence at the 8th Annual Armed Forces Day
and Fly-In in Marianna, Florida. We had the opportunity to fly many Young Eagles at the event. David Burke captured the experience of the Young Eagle Flights in a YouTube Video that can be viewed here.

The Club had terrific success in sharing our love of flight with many youngsters, and we believe many of them will continue on the Young Eagle path. All, however, had an experience that they will never forget.
