  Next step milestone for Young Eagles



After the release of FAA’s Alternative Pilot Physical Examination and Education Requirements (Advisory Circular 68-1, aka “BasicMed”), overall reaction has been very positive. As with any change or new procedure, the questions are inevitable. EAA’s staff has received numerous questions about what the new law means or what may happen when it becomes effective on May 1.

EAA put together this Resource Center to make it easy for you to access information on BasicMed. After reviewing these materials, please contact us if you have further questions.

The FAA BasicMed includes three core requirements:

Comply with the general BasicMed requirements (possess a U.S. driver's license have held a medical after July 14, 2006).

Get a physical exam with a state-licensed physician, using the Comprehensive Medical Examination Checklist.

Complete a BasicMed medical education course (Approved Courses: Mayo Aerospace & Air Safety Institute : May 1st)

Quote of the Month:
When someone talks about using the -------- for aerobatics, I just ask two things. First do it over an un-populated area... Second, mount a camera somewhere so the NTSB and the rest of us can see what happened... jwzumwalt@gmail.com


EAA Chapter 75 IMC Club program -

1st Tuesday of the month conference room at Lindquist Ford in Bettendorf - 6 pm

The purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency, and safety. You may have heard of the IMC Club organization started by Radek Wyrzykowski. Back then, the program was separate from the EAA and the cost to participate was on the order of $25-$30 per month. Last November it was merged into the Experimental Aircraft Association (http://eaa.org/imcclub), so no additional membership is required! Is now free! Since we don't want to interfere with our regular EAA chapter meetings, we will be holding the IMC Club meetings at a separate time and location, but all chapter members interested in instrument flying are welcome to attend. If you've got friends interested in instrument flying that aren't chapter members, bring them too! Having an interest are the key words. You only have to have a desire to learn about the IFR system.

The IMC Club monthly programming is developed and produced by EAA, but it does not use a lecture or presentation format. Instead an actual scenario is presented and is followed by a group discussion – so audience participation is encouraged! Since everyone has a different experience level and different airplane capabilities, we can all benefit from the discussion. As a CFII, Tim Leinbach has graciously agreed to be our subject matter expert and lead the discussion, but the real value comes from everyone contributing to the conversation.

Tool Tips from the EAA

Did you know that there is an FAA approved fluid like 5606 that has a higher ignition point. A leak is less likely to set your brakes and plane on fire. The substitute is fully compatible with standard 5606 so one doesn't have to flush, just drain and re-fill. If you get stuck away from home one can still top off with the old 5606. The mix however is more flamable but still much higher and safer than straight 5606.
Here is an EAA video about these Aircraft hydraulic fluids.
