Chapter 170

San Luis Obispo, CA

The next meeting is Sunday, January 20 at 12:00

This month Austin Ditto will be talking about flying to Mexico. He has been south of the border many times and will be returning this year to support the  Baja 1000—a Mexican off-road motorsport race held on the Baja California Peninsula. He is also supporting the Baja Bush Pilots whales trip this year at the end of January and will talk about that as well.
 
He’ll also be talking a bit about aeromedical issues and will be giving away a pulse oximeter. 
Also, I'd like to get together with the board members at 11:30 at Paul's hangar as usual.This month's meeting will be a little different.  We will be meeting at San Luis Avionics at 12:00 this Sunday.  Eat lunch first as we won't be having hot dogs this month. Donny has offered to do a presentation on ADS-B transponders which will become mandatory for operation in much of the country.  Donny will have equipment displays and discuss:
 
  • What equipment is available
  • What is required to comply with the regulations
  • How do you go about implementing this installation
  • What will work for your plane
  • How to properly program the transponder
  • $500 Rebate
 
If you know anyone else in the aviation community that might be interested, they are certainly welcome to attend as well and I'm sure Donny would appreciate it also.  He has graciously made his time and shop available for this presentation so let's make an effort to hear what he has to say.  See you there.

Also, I'd like to get together with the board members at 11:30 at Paul's hangar as usual.
