Sean Tucker Bio
Sean Tucker, a native of Eagle Rock California, earned his pilot’s certificate at age 17. Tucker's father, William, was an aviation industry lawyer who had learned to fly as part of his job. Tucker started out as a cropduster, eventually starting a cropdusting business in Salinas, CaliforniaIn order to overcome his fear of crashing, Tucker took an aerobatics course, through which he "found out you could roll an airplane upside down and it wouldn't fall out of the sky."He has been flying airshows worldwide since the mid-1970s and is considered by many to be one of the world’s premier airshow performers. Tucker's favorite stunt is the "triple ribbon cut", where he uses his plane to cut three ribbons suspended between poles from three different angles.Despite once having afear of flying, Tucker has flown more than 1,000 performances at more than 425 airshows, in front of more than 80 million spectators.
Meeting starts at 10:30.

Bob Wiser on Radio Antenna Maintenance (why isn't your radio working as well as it used to?)
"Do you have a plane, or know of a plane that has a radio that isn’t working as well as it use to? Do you know what Aluminum Oxide is and why you should be concerned about it? Are there strange things happening in your cockpit electronic systems when you transmit? At the next EAA meeting we’ll discuss these topics and give you an opportunity to check out your plane’s communications systems performance. Don’t be fooled by having your plane stored in a Watsonville Airport hanger."
