Hi, Thuds are F-105s.  Not enough left after Vietnam for drone use.

Didn’t realize drone technology had advanced this far so quickly.  They are using up their
Obsolete F-16’s.  Not a good day for the future of manned aircraft.  Seems like the PILOT is
On the endangered list.  This little 4 minute video is really something.  A first for a full size jet
Airplane.  Thousands of planes that were grave yard bound, with costs in the hundreds of
Millions, can now be used as never before.  These F-16’s Boeing aircraft have been in the
Bone yard at Davis-Monahan for 15 years , and now being used as drones.

Sounds good Dave. I will plan on presenting my study. If your TV has an HDMI input, it can hook directly to my computer and that should work, otherwise we can all huddle around my laptop….like a small campfire :-)

Very much looking forward to the fly-in excited at the possibility of seeing Sam’s new canard and your bird too.

Cheers,

Jay

Hi Jay
 I haven't made any plans for presentations, but you would be more than welcome to set one up. The EAA building is small and I have a flat screen TV that could be used. Last year Mike Bergen did an impromptu presentation on composites that filled about an hours time, and was very good. He used his laptop for the program. It sounds interesting. 
 Mike asked about the cancelation policy at the motel, and it's 24 hours. 
 The weather here has been fantastic, and I'm getting excited about our event. The airport is in great shape, and welcomes camping. The EAA building will be left open all night if people are camping out. I flew tonight and it was a beautiful calm and clear night. 
 Jerry Marstall and Sam Hoskins have reserved rooms and Sams progress reports are looking good. A trip to Yankee Candle on Saturday is planned. Lobsters and steamers at 6:00 PM. If anyone needs help, or if rooms fill up for some reason, let me know. I'm sure that the Executive Inn will have a vacancy in a pinch. 
    Hope to see everyone.....Dave D

Hi Dave,I have booked airline tickets to Hartford, and will rent a car and drive to Orange. I also booked a room from Thursday night, so I will be on hand to help you set things up on Friday if you need help.

On a related note: I have been talking to a few people off-line most of this year about the full aerodynamic computer modeling of the Q-200 (LS-1 canard) that I have been working on for a few years. This is a  quantitative modeling analysis that I had intended to finish earlier this year and get it out to a few people for review before distributing it widely.  But my timing has slipped, and this delay may present an opportunity to show the study, or at least the meat of it at the FOD, if you have not already booked something technical. I think people there would be quite interested in the findings and they could provide real time feedback for me. If you would like, I can put together a powerpoint with the salient findings and be prepared to present it. I would only need a fairly good digital projector that could hook to my computer (standard VGA) and a screen or white wall.

Let me know if this would appeal to you and if you say yes, how much time you think would be appropriate.

I am looking forward to the FOD, but I could not talk my wife into coming, even with the Yankee Candles enticement, but I will keep working on her for subsequent years.

CONTACT! Magazine's 11th Annual Fly-in

Patrick Panzera
 

Friends,

 

For the past three years we’ve been very fortunate to have our CONTACT! Magazine annual fly-in hosted by the fine people at the Golden West Fly-in (Marysville California), who rolled out the red carpet for us. But each year the weather seemed to not want to cooperate. Last year we had a record-shattering heat wave, and the year before that we had 40 mph winds with low temps to match.

Each of these weather-related issues kept people from showing up, so our numbers have been slowly declining while they should be rising exponentially. So in the last issue I made mention of a few places we were considering, one such place being French Valley Airport (F70), near Temecula California. Not long after that I received an email from the French Valley EAA chapter (Pietenpol builders!) offering their full assistance. Long story short, I paid them a visit and they voted to help us all they can.

 

So with that, I’m pleased to announce that on Saturday September 27, 2014, we’ll be hosting our 11th annual Alternative Engine and Experimental Aircraft Round-Up at French Valley Airport. The event will have a soft start on Friday, Sept 26th, as we receive and welcome arrivals. On Saturday we’ll have a day of educational forums and lots of cool stuff to see on the ramp. We’ll have a nice catered dinner that evening, and the next day we’ll be there to help those who flew in to get home safely.

 

None of the details are set in stone (except the date and the place) but we plan to have easy access from the parking lot to the forums for those who drive in, and plenty of ground support (including transportation to and from motels) for those who fly-in. The uncontrolled field has a beautifully paved 6000’ x 75’ lighted runway, lots of tiedown space, and even a few vacant hangars that can be rented by the day for those who wish to keep their planes inside overnight. Additionally, there’s a very nice restaurant on the field. For more information, please visit our website:

http://www.contactmagazine.com/roundup.html

(still a work in progress)

 

And if you’d like to display your plane, present an educational forum, offer assistance or even display a product, please let me know as soon as possible. You can reach me best by email:

 

Editor@... or by my calling office phone number during normal business hours:

559-584-3306

 

We hope to see you there!

 

I’d also like to take a moment to let you know that we are about to deliver our special, 85th Pietenpol anniversary issue of CONTACT! Magazine, and to thank all of you who were at the Brodhead Pietenpol gathering or AirVenture and either bought the single issue or went the distance and subscribed to CONTACT!

 

And I'd especially like to thank ALL who participated in the making of this issue. If it wasn't for their generosity of information, we wouldn't have this awesome issue. It was our great pleasure to work with these individuals that helped us create this special 32 page issue filled with Pietenpol articles. Here’s a link to the cover image:

http://tinyurl.com/CM-Issue108

 

Here’s the table of contents:

 

•Dan Helsper’s Ford A Powered Pietenpol.— Oscar Zuniga introduces us to a special Pietenpol built by Dan Helsper, who did his best to stick to the plans wherever practical, including the engine.

 

•Ol’ Tattered Wingtips.— Pietenpol patriarch Donald “Doc” Mosher tells of some of the inside tips that help fill in the gaps left in the various Pietenpol plan sets currently available.

 

•Got Gas?— Steve Williamson, President of EAA Chapter 1279 based at French Valley Airport, gives us a little insight into the traps that can arise when building a plane as a chapter, and details the fuel system in the Pietenpol they built.

 

•1937 Pietenpol Air Camper NX308MB— Gary Boothe shares his story of building this simple yet elegant version of Bernard Pietenpol’s Corvair-powered Air Camper, as a tribute to his father.

 

•Greg Bacon’s Turbo Subaru EA-82T Pietenpol Air Camper— Oscar Zuniga presents the tale of “Mountain Piet,” a straightforward incarnation designed to be flown from a field in Colorado with a summertime density altitude approaching 11,000 feet.

 

•Chris Rusch’s “MitsuPIETshi” Air Camper— Oscar Zuniga highlights some of the many details that make this Air Camper unique, including the Mitsubishi forklift engine that was overhauled before being adapted to its new chore of powering a classic bird.

 

•11th Annual Alternative Engine Round-Up— The fine people from EAA Chapter 1279 have stepped up and offered to cohost our annual fly-in. This year;s event will be held on Saturday, September 27th at the French Valley Airport near Temecula California.

 

If you’re interested in receiving CONTACT! Magazine, please contact us by phone, e-mail, or just simply drop a check in the mail to us and we’ll enter you into our database just in time to receive this issue. The link to our subscription page is at the very bottom of this note.

 

Please remember that CONTACT! Magazine is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit, educational resource. We publish CONTACT! not as a moneymaking endeavor, but rather as a labor of love- love for experimental aviation.

 

As previously stated, we just returned from a very successful trip to the Brodhead Pietenpol gathering and Oshkosh. We met some great people with some new products and interesting planes that we’ll be writing about in upcoming issues and I know you won’t want to miss out.

 

Additionally, we finally picked up the full-color version of Alternative Engines Volume 4 from the printer just before I left for OSH. I had a good supply of them at Brodhead and AirVenture and totally sold out by the third day. While I was away at the show, my wife Veronica mailed out several hundred to those who were kind enough to preorder so that we would have the funds to self-publish. She’s still not done so if you preordered and haven’t received yours yet, hang in there a few more weeks. If you haven’t ordered yours yet, now is the time to do it!

 

We’ve had the less expensive black and white version in stock for quite a while now and they’re always available. If you’d like to know more about the book, please visit:

www.contactmagazine.com/Vol4tableofcontents.html

 

Here’s an electronic version preview of Volume 4:

If you’d like just the current, all Pietenpol issue- that can be ordered by following the directions at the bottom of this page:

Please note that this page hasn’t been updated in a little over a year and does not include all the most recent issues, including the all-Pietenpol issue. Just be sure to ask for issue #108 when you order.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Patrick Panzera, Editor
