EAA Chapter 225 Young Eagle Flight Rally 9-28-14: Hello Everyone, Just sending out what might be one last reminder to everyone for the last EAA Chapter 225 Young Eagle Flight Rally event for 2014. It is being held at Rochester's Skyhaven Airport on Saturday, October 4th from 8 am to 4 pm
We are looking for both ground volunteers and for EAA Young Eagle Pilots who would like to help out at this event. As always, pilots eat free and you can stay for one or more flights. Please reply to this email if you can stop by to volunteer for a while and if you're a pilot if you can fly for one or more flights, so that I can get some idea as to a number of volunteers and pilots who can help out with this event.
Please note that Skyhaven is undergoing runway reconstruction and at present, there is 2300 feet of new pavement on the southerly end of the airport to use. That portion is serviced with only the end of runway taxiway, so pilots will be 'back taxiing' at some point either to launch or upon returning from the flights. If you have any questions regarding the airfield, the Web site for Skyhaven has pictures and information about the reconstruction and current layout of the airport.

Ultimate Plane Ride to see Sprites   8-31-14:
In a recent show on NOVA, scientist
had pilots fly two bizjets above the
clouds to take pictures of "sprites."
Sprites are sparks that appear above
powerful lightning bolts and extend
up to the airglow that resides in the
lower ionesphere (60 miles up).
The service ceiling of bizjets is around
50,000 feet, so I'd guess that's where
they took their pictures.
However, a person from South
Dakota captured some sprites from the 
ground with his camera.
