Eagle Squadron Activities & Schedules
 
Jim Flick, Ron Hayward & Tom Stahlwitz met with Jeff Pierson and others from Montague Middle School to discuss an upcoming Young Eagles Build and Fly program at the school for this spring/summer, sponsored by the AMA & EAA. The school will be getting a "package" consisting of a Sig LT-40e kit, with motor, radio, etc. (everything to build, cover & make it RTF), a Real Flight simulator and a lighted Vapor for this program. More on this exciting venture as details are worked out.
Tom put on an impressive demonstration flight of his super light & slow indoor flier in front of about 60 kids.

to see the full album of pictures from the Eagle Squadron session at the Folkert Community Center. This is the event where our volunteer mentors helped the students build a glider made from foam sheeting. The event was a huge success with students, mentors and all in attendance having a great fun time. After construction of the glider, the students took the gliders to an adjacent area where  a flight course had been setup in a manner similar to a golf course. The goal for each student was to toss the glider from hole to hole while avoiding hazards. The final hole was called the black hole and had a special challenge with fans and streamers interfering with the gliders path to the black hole. Please view the photos at the link above to see what it was all about. Thanks to Folkert Community center for providing the students and the facilities for the activities. Also, thanks to Jim Flick and Ron Hayward for their effort in organizing and prepping for this event. Additional thanks to all of the members who assisted with mentoring and to Susie Hughes for her expert photography and preparing the photo album.
