The FAA recently clarified what can be logged as an instrument approach. Whether you are on an IFR flight or maintaining your currency, the following article will help you know what can legally be logged as an instrument approach.
Dayton Pilots Club Membership Meeting: February 2015
Members Attending: Tom Weber, Steve Bohn, Reiff Lorenz, Neal Charske, Clem Gilliland, Ken Lawson, Gary Wheeler, Chester Harris, Suzanne Harris, Larry Scherr, Todd Morehart [Note. We have 19 active members, so the 30% that is required for a quorum is 6 members.]
The Treasurer reported the proposed budget for 2015. It proposes increasing the monthly dues to $120 per month. The proposed flying rate is $146 for the Cessna 182RG and the Archer rate drops to $83 per hour (down from $108).
We have had a number of new member inquiries, but none have committed to joining, yet.
The plane is in good shape. We will replace the strobe lights with LED fixtures as soon as they are available.
The manifold pressure gage is reading low. It has been placarded. An odor was reported in the cockpit. The aircraft was checked for carbon monoxide; none was found. The smell was suspected to be oil or dust in the heat duct.
There was a discussion of the changes to the constitution proposed last month. Neal Charske moved to accept the changes. Clem Gilliland seconded. The membership unanimously approved the proposed changes to the constitution.
We’re now taking nominations for the club’s trustees. Contact Neal Charske if you are interested in running. The election will be at the March membership meeting.
Our Cessna 182RG has a new (to us) prop, and she looks a whole lot better. After we began flying 9TX, we discovered a grease leak. Worried that the seals had gone bad, we sent the aircraft in for maintenance. Turns out we needed even the props replaced. Oh, well. We completely know the condition of the prop now, and I think it looks good on her.
