|Massive New Hybrid Airship Rolls |
Out in U.K.
Following the completion of all indoor testing, the gigantic Hybrid Air Vehicles Airlander 10 airship was rolled out of a hangar at Cardington Airfield in Bedfordshire, U.K. in late July 2016, in preparation for its maiden flight. In addition to helium for buoyancy, the Airlander 10 uses a combination of vectored thrust and aerodynamic lift to carry payloads exceeding 20,000 pounds for days or even weeks at a time.
At 302 feet, the Airlander 10 will be the longest aircraft currently flying, besting the Antonov An-225 by nearly 30 feet, and will be used for a wide range of communication, cargo carrying, and survey roles in both the military and commercial sectors. Learn more >>

Our current president is relocating. However, this is no cause for alarm. Due to the power of the 25th amendment, Vice President Pete is required to step up and as such, will assume the duties of President. We'll soon see what plans he has for the chapter.

ELSA REPAIRMAN COURSE SCHEDULED FOR LAWRENCEVILLE OCTOBER 8-9, 2016
Sport Aviation Specialties has scheduled its FAA-accepted 16-hour ELSA Repairman Course forOctober 8-9, 2016 in Lawrenceville, GA. Successful completion of the course qualifies current or future owners of fixed-wing Experimental Light-Sport Aircraft (ELSA) for an FAA Light-Sport Repairman- Inspection- Airplane (LSRIA) certificate; with the certificate, owners are authorized to perform and sign off the annual condition inspection for any fixed-wing ELSA they own, now or in the future. The course fee is $400.
Although the course will not authorize owners of Experimental Amateur-Built (EAB) aircraft to sign off their annual condition inspections, many find that the maintenance and inspection knowledge they gain is very useful and helps to convince their A&P Mechanic that they are capable of performing tasks during an owner-assisted annual inspection.
For more information or to register, please contact Mike Huffman at 770-548-1206 (phone or text) or by email at email@example.com. Additional information is also available on the LSA Repairman Courses page of our website www.sportaviationspecialties.c
These live multimedia presentations are informative and interactive, allowing the presenter to use slides and audio, while audience members can ask questions, chat, or be polled for their opinion.
Registration is required, and space is limited.
