Introduction

Welcome to the November Flight Plan, our monthly eNewletter from EAA 1358, The Wiregrass Chapter. Our area is recovering from Hurricane Michael and will be for some time. Our thoughts, prayers and support go to those still trying to get their lives back to normal.

In this month's edition of the eNewsletter, we will recap the Young Eagle Rally we participated in with EAA 351, Enterprise and our Annual Chapter Banquet. We will also preview upcoming events. This Saturday our ADS-B & Me event will be held at our November meeting. Also coming in November, we will start taking applications for the Auburn Aviation Camp. Also, we have decided to participate in the Southeast World of Work as we did last year.

Finally, we want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We hope you are able to spend the Holiday with loved ones.

Recap Young Eagle Rally

Chapter 1358 participated in the Enterprise Rally last Saturday. Danny Cherry's plane was down for its Annual Inspection, so he rode over with Bill Castlen. As luck would have it, there was a Piper there in need of a pilot, so Danny jumped in and flew two sorties with six youngsters. Bill flew three sorties with nine youngsters, so Chapter 1358 came away with 15 new Young Eagles. There was a total of 11 planes participating and over 100 youngsters flew. It was a very uplifting and successful event.

EAA1358 Annual Chapter Banquet

Saturday evening, we had a great gathering and super presentations by Art Morris III and David Stock. Art gave us a very interesting review of the history of Dothan airports and people and Dave gave us an inspirational vision of a possible future of our Chapter and the EAA Young Eagle program.

Southeast World of Work

We will be participating at Southeast World of Work again in February of 2019. This was a tremendous event for our chapter this year and allowed us to meet many new youngsters that joined our Young Eagle program. More information will be provided as we get closer to this event.
