Greetings Chapter 12 Members and Friends!


Please note that the monthly chapter meetings are held on the second Tuesday night of each month from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM.  Frequently at Ellington Field locations, but with varying other locations so please watch the notices carefully.  The Chapter will also have occasional technical and social events on the weekends and possibly other nights.  Feel free to recommend, give or host meetings or events.

Andy Foster will be 7pm-9pm at Signature Flight Support, 11811 N. Brantly Avenue, Houston TX  77034, ( – in the upstairs Meeting room

Chapter member Andy Foster will have a presentation/discussion about the new Ray Aviation Scholarships program and what it would take as a chapter to participate. This program would require the chapter as a whole to take part so it would be great if we could have as many members as possible attend this month's meeting to join in the discussion.

I still have a one-of-a-kind project at 3T5.  It is a single-seat, high-wing, vw-powered, taildragger.  Wing is complete and engine conversion is complete.  Fuselage gussets are water-jet cut.  My engine is a 1600cc and really needs some upgrading.  I’m using the Diehl System for mount, alternator, and magneto.


Please send your current projects to We'd like to get a current list of all Chapter members' projects.
