Monday, December 3, 2018 Meeting 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The topic will be Ski Flying featuring two key speakers:  Stacee Frost and Carol Zerbe

Stacee Frost’s passion for bow hunting in Alaska, meant the obvious, fly to location.  In 2016, at 41 years young, Stacee decided it was time to learn to fly.  After two years and 200 hours of accumulated flight time, she’ll note that she is still a novice.  She continues to gain more experience and confidence with every aerial adventure.  Stacee would like to share her first winter ski flying experience starting with purchasing the skis, ground maneuvers and heat management.

Carol Zerbe, has been flying professionally for over 20 years in Alaska.  Carol says her favorite type of flying is when her airplane is equipped with skis!  Carol will share her expertise with an  overview of ski flying, noteworthy “Pro-tips”, and will provide various ski flying destinations:  some more advanced and technical than others.

Hope to see you!!

Looking for a few good women- Keep our chapter going! Elections September 4

Our Last Frontier Chapter needs volunteers to step up and help run the day to day business of the chapter. The current leadership has been in office since chapter inception and is required to step down for a break via our bylaws.  Three board positions are open and must be filled for the chapter to continue.

If positions are not filled, the chapter will close its doors.  However, no one will be strong armed into service.

Try it, you’ll like it!  Workload isn’t high if it’s shared, and working towards a common goal strengthens relationships and is something to be proud of.

Floatplane Discovery Flights at Lake Hood Seaplane Base

Members of the local chapters of EAA, Women in Aviation, and the Alaska Airmen’s Association partnered together to provide Young Eagles discovery flights to youth on July 28.   Thank you EAA Chapter 42 for guidance at the event, and to the Alaska Airmen’s Association for donating the use of their building and dock for the event. Kids who completed an essay on “Why I am interested in a floatplane ride” were invited to attend.
