Confusion surrounding the "new" requirements for Young Eagles

Aug
24

"It seems there may still be some confusion surrounding the "new" requirements for Young Eagles flights/events.
EAA National took a decision some 18+ months ago, following a proposal by Mike Brown that we review our approach to YE flights on order to ensure benefit to the Chapters and to those pilots and ground crew volunteering their time and aircraft.
The focus is on ensuring the quality rather than a quantity of YE activities.
We now have distinguished between "flipping" youngsters, and providing a proper YE experience.

CONTACT!... the engine of Ivan’s ‘Schaarman’ started up for the first time since 1976

Aug
17

It was an aviator’s dream... a clear winter’s day, Sunday 13 July, and the engine of Ivan’s ‘Schaarman’ started up for the first time since 1976. Yeehah!
It’s been a labour of love for Ivan and Sonica for the last few years, and their hard work was rewarded when the Pratt & Whitney started on the first try as if it was new.
This beautiful plane will be on static display at the Petit Classic & Vintage Fly-in on Saturday 04 October.

Nylstroom Taildraggers

Aug
16

With approximately 25 aircraft having arrived the day before our familiar voice on the radio, Bob Allison, deftly guided another 100 into Nylstoom on Saturday.
This is perhaps the best collection of ‘real’ general aviation planes to be seen at any event. From RVs to classics like the Cessna 195, a pair of Chipmunks, a Boeing Stearman and various Cubbies. Even non-taildraggers were welcome, but we were asked to park further down the taxiway away from the crowds.
