  •  Congratulations Karen!
Our treasurer, Karen Kalishek, happy following her successful examination for CFI-Glider.
Karen received her commercial glider certificate in 2015 and since then has enjoyed flying sailplanes in Wisconsin, California, Arkansas, Tennessee, Arizona and Vermont.  She is a member of the Wisconsin Soaring Society based in Hartford, Wisconsin. Karen invites powered pilots to experience the fun and skill development that is part of non-powered flight. 

  
 
  • Website Maintenance
Many items have been removed since the server change earlier this year. They just don't work anymore. The items were on the left side lower menu area. They were: recent - videos, photos, members, posts & upcoming events.  
The mobile portion has also been turned off. The pairing of a free mobile provider not only resulted in pages from the site being incomplete it was also notoriously slow resulting in the pages not being loaded at all.

Jay's first breakfast of 2017 had a great showing! Weather was very nice but a little windy. Around 40 aircraft showed up in total & over 100 breakfasts served. The breakfast was followed by the monthly meeting of the Wisconsin Chapter of the Ninety-Nines. (Click on any picture to go to the full album) 
 
 
  
 

   
 
If you haven't already, please obtain the certification as soon as possible so we can continue to provide our events following the YPP policy.
 
The new Youth Protection Plan is pivotal to the Young Eagles program and any other event where the chapter is involved with children under the age of 18. Below are links to the introduction, program overview, requirements, documents & feedback.

  • IMC Club News - Rich Mamrosh of the NWS GRB gave us an excellent presentation on SKEW-T diagrams and how they can provide supplemental information to the preflight and inflight WX sources. An excellent tool not only for the IFR pilot, but the VFR pilot too. With his permission & slight mods to remove copyrighted material the powerpoint presentation has been uploaded here so others may see it. You may get it here - 
http://bit.ly/2e1iBLf  It's highly recommended to download it to your computer or use an online viewer to view. The link above will automatically open it for a "quick" view but it is corrupted on many pages.

"Lady Lynn" made it to her new home in Germany! Eisenach-Kindel Airport (EDGE). We lost track of her between Narsarsuaq, Greenland (BGBW) and Wick, Scotland (EGPC). UPDATED - "Lady Lynn" landed in Keflavavik (BIKF) as assumed but required re-routing due to the strong winds aloft & fuel reserve requirements. Ferry pilots Klaus Plasa & Stephan Gottwald provided us with a PIREP of their epic journey - here.  Click on pictures below for more photos.
