Chapter Members,
I am attempting to determine how many experimental amateur-built (homebuilt) aircraft are now owned by someone other than the original builder of the aircraft.

Some of you have already sent in your survey, and I thank you for doing so. For those that haven’t seen the survey yet, I would like to request that you answer the above short survey...

If you have any questions regarding this survey, call me at 920-426-6806 or e-mail

AOPA’s Keep ’Em Flying Challenge

Keep 'Em Flying Challenge

AOPA Unveils The 2012 Keep ‘em Flying Challenge

Looking for an excuse to go flying? Take up AOPA’s Keep ’Em Flying Challenge, a new time-bound contest to get you in the air between April 1 and July 31.

The Challenge:

Between April 1 and July 31, 2012, a pilot must,
  • Complete an Air Safety Institute online course;
  • Fly at least five hours; and
  • Fly in an aircraft serving as pilot in command to five airports or destinations that are more than 50 nautical miles from the immediately preceding departure point.
Those in the lighter-than-air and glider aircraft categories are exempt from the last two tasks, but instead must make five flights.
Pilots who complete the challenge and submit their notice of completion will be entered into a cash prize drawing.
The challenge is open to any aircraft category, class, or type. Participants must be at least 19 years old, hold at least an FAA student pilot certificate, and the flight must be conducted under and in accordance with FAR Part 91.
AOPA will use an honor system where pilots can electronically certify that they met the criteria listed above. Participants are encouraged to use Facebook and Twitter to post pictures and update their progress. The winners will be announced at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Palm Springs, Calif., in October. Prize winners will be required to produce logbooks that verify their entry. 
The grand prize winner will receive a cash award of $2,499. The second-place winner will receive $1,000, while the third-place winner will receive $500. Four fourth-place winners will receive $250 each.
