Submitted by thail on Fri, 11/06/2009 - 09:19.

"A Pilot’s Story is a feature length documentary film that explores the mystical attraction and endless adventure that draw pilots into the sky. The story is told in the voices of noted aviators ranging from aerobatic champions and astronauts to industry innovators and Hollywood stars mixed with average everyday local pilots. Incorporating stunning air-to-air footage, the film will transport viewers into the flyer’s world to experience the milestones and the magic that are a part of every pilot’s story."

WiFi in the Hangar

Submitted by thail on Tue, 10/20/2009 - 21:01.

 Scott, Ken, Mike and Rob got the internet link working into the EAA Hangar and we now have WiFi inside and actually outside the hangar.  It seems to work in the parking lot and on the ramp in front of the doors.  The doors do not have to be open for you to get a signal.

We are using the airport internet connection through an RF link building to building.  So far it has been problem free but let Scott or I know if you have any issues.   It is unprotected, like the WVI connection in the terminal, no password needed. 

EAA119 Day in the Sky Pre-Brief

Submitted by thail on Sat, 04/11/2009 - 00:27.

Hello, I am the president of EAA Chapter 119 and I want to welcome you all and thank you for volunteering to fly in this year's Day in the Sky.  I know that some of you have not committed fully with business, maintenance, and family conflicts, but those who have flown this event or the other events around the Bay Area know how a meaningful and rewarding this event is.  Bosses and family would understand if they could see the smiles and grins we get from the kids and their families.For those who have not flown an EAA 119 Young Eagles rally, we keep it very simple and safe.  What I want to do here is give you a pre-briefing of how we do things so you know what to expect when you arrive, especially for the first time.  We will have a formal briefing for you when you arrive on the 18th.  Either at 8am at the EAA hangar or when you arrive.  Please do not fly until you have been briefed.
