EAA eHotline and Upcoming Events

My Decathlon is broken so I was going to try to fly in a rented Decathlon today in Leesburg, Virginia, but it was too windy. I guess I’ll have to settle for a picture of a Decathlon (the picture below is actually my older airplane; I often regret selling it, but I know the new owner is taking good care of it). Bummer! But the cancellation gives me some time to work on my long-neglected website.

Many thanks to EAA for a nice call-out about The Propeller under the Bed in their eHotline last week: Click here to read the short article.

I’m excited to be the speaker at the annual meeting of the Oregon Aviation Historical Society in Cottage Grove, Oregon next Saturday (April 14). I have to admit I’m a little nervous about giving a presentation on the history of homebuilt aircraft to a group of folks who know way more than I do about Oregon’s significant contributions to homebuilding!

I’m also going to be giving an interview and book reading to Authors of the Pacific Northwest. I’ll let you know when the podcast gets published and will provide a link to the website.
