Chapter 225 Young Eagle Flight Rally 9-28-14:
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
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. Skyhaven Website: http://www.skyhavennh.com Thank you &

Nano Hummingbird is a miniature aircraft developed under the Nano Air Vehicle
funded through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). DARPA
was established to
prevent strategic surprise from negatively impacting U.S. national security,
and to create strategic surprise for U.S. adversaries by maintaining the
technological superiority of the U.S. military. AeroVironment developed
the Nano Air Vehicle (NAV) under a DARPA sponsored research contract to
develop a new class of air vehicle systems capable of indoor and outdoor
operation. Employing biological mimicry at an extremely small scale, this
unconventional aircraft could someday provide new reconnaissance and surveillance
capabilities in urban environments.
