The Kitty Hawk Challenge Group (Braden Hobbs, Pres.; Logan Boe, William McGlochlin, Krista Jankeviciute, Jaiden Venn, Caiden Hobbs, Katlin and Ryan Allen) presented the project to design and build an ultralight airplane this summer during 10 weeks. Some details: 200 lb. useful load, 13+ hp. engine, maybe electric, aerodynamic and materials engineering of wings, fuselage, instruments, control surfaces, etc.

Sterling and Nancy Hurst visited the EAA958 meeting in San Marcos TX. During, and especially after the meeting, they were extremely interested in the HAWK Aviators LLC system and how it was set up legally and accomplished. They had already begun discussing a youth build and flying program. We sent them some of HAWK documents and brochure.

Pres. Kim Neibauer stated we need to produce lists, now, for: 1) MM Fat Tire Jamboree volunteers, 2) AirVenture 2018 attendees, and 3) those needing name tags.

EAA800 will have a formal Young Eagles Program in October, but we can fly individuals anytime. Eddie C. told of the recent balloon flights with HAWK. Michelle Hobbs, Jake Miller, and Krista J. already have flight hours logged towards the Balloon Private Pilot Certificate.

Eddie C. talked of Russell Frank getting a CallAir airplane for towing gliders this summer at Mack Mesa and/or Rifle. Samuel Demintstein, retired airline pilot and flight instructor, wishes to be involved with this glider flying activity.
