EAA Chapter 1218
2014-October Meeting Minutes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Phylis White   
December 06, 2014

October 25, 2014 meeting postponed from October 11. 29 members and one guest dined at noon before President Tom White called the annual meeting to order.
Photos from the recent EAA Leadership Academy attended by Tom and Phyllis White were shown including a photo of the Home Builders Hall of Fame plaque with Bill Ghan’s name on it. The October video magazine was shown including the STOL competition at Air Venture featuring Bobby Breeden. Ron Weldon said he had visited with Breeden at a Gaston’s gathering. The cooks were thanked for lunch. Member Chuck Hiett is recovering from an auto accident the first of the month.
A motion to approve the minutes as published was made by Henny Christensen, second by Lindall Baker and approved by members present. Secretary Phyllis White gave the financial report in the absence of Treasurer David Johnson. A motion to approve as reported was made by Henny Christensen, second by Don Nevels and approved. We have sold enough rifle raffle tickets to pay for it but need to sell more for a profit for the scholarship. President White asked for volunteers to sell tickets in front of a Wal-Mart or local grocer. Bill Ghan volunteered to sell at Mountain Grove Wal-Mart on November 8th. There were no other volunteers.
The annual meeting is the election of officers. President White read the slate of officers and asked for nominations from the floor. There were none. Ed Walker made a motion to elect the slate as read by acclimation, second by Bob Coats and approved by members. Henny Christensen said we need to have a group photo of the officers at the next meeting.
Some of the information gleaned from the leadership academy was covered. The head of public relations, Dick Knapinski spoke regarding media coverage of an incident. He cautioned chapters if there is an incident, to not say a lot. The news media wants about a 9-12 second clip and he suggests we say “our hearts and prayers go the families involved for the loss and we will leave it up to the authorities to determine what happened”. We will have his complete presentation at a future meeting. We are on the list for the One Week Wonder (Zenith 750) which will be touring this coming year. They plan to go to Mexico, MO of course and hopefully w will be their next stop. Of the chapters represented, 1218 is doing a lot of things right. More info from the academy will be shared at future meetings.
The FAA ruling 90-116 regarding the second pilot in an experimental during the first ten hours was discussed. Ron Hook said that also allows for instruction.
Secretary White read an e-mail from Ben Rushing, Louisiana that purchased the Hiperbipe from the chapter. He and his wife are planning to be in the area next weekend and hope to see some members at the airport.
Due to the late October meeting, members voted to skip a November meeting; motion by Mike Noonan, second by Ed Walker and approved by members. The next meeting will be the holiday meal, December 13th, 2PM. Secretary White will contact members with a set menu for items to bring.
Rory Lozano said he had been dealing with difficult people where he works. The contrast between them and coming to chapter meetings where everyone is pleasant and wanting to accomplish something working together, makes him appreciate us.
A motion to adjourn was made by Ed Walker, second by John Smith and approved by members.

September 29, 2014

September 13, 2014 (Abbreviated)
Following the annual open house/fly-in twenty five tired members stayed for the business meeting. Lynn Bentele’s name was drawn from the open house name tags turned in for her choice of a hat, visor or mug.
The secretary’s report was approved as published; motion by Lindall Baker, second by Tom Bentele. The treasurer’s report was approved as reported by David Johnson, motion to approve by Brent Humphreys, second by Tom Bentele. Several joined the chapter today including Ragan Callahan, West Plains. Berlin Batesel gave him his first plane ride. Ron White said new member Harold Smith gave him his first plane ride. The dessert sampling was a success.
Members Jack Richardson and John Good are on the mend. Members should have received the death notice for Marjorie Johnston, Homer’s widow. She was a dear lady and big supporter of the chapter. Sandy Smith’s step father-in-law Floyd Pinkston, Springfield passed away also. He and his wife were longtime aviators and Missouri Pilot Association officers and members. Sandy received a $100 check from the Summersville Auxiliary to the Jerry Smith Scholarship Fund in Floyd’s memory.
The slate of officers for 2015 was presented. Lindall Baker asked to withdraw as nominee for vice president and Tom Young has volunteered as his replacement. Annual voting will be at the October meeting; remember you must be a member of national to vote on issues. Nominations will be taken from the floor also.
The 54th Hootin’ and Hollerin’, Gainesville will be the weekend of September 20. Pioneer Days, Mountain View, will be the following weekend.
The October 11 meeting will be chili, soup crock pot potluck at noon with the business meeting to follow.

EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 Scholarship Program


  1. To promote general aviation in south central Missouri by encouraging interested individuals to pursue obtaining their primary pilot license.
  2. To increase local general aviation economic activity.
  3. To promote use and support of local airport facilities, services and personnel.
  4. To increase local awareness of EAA Chapter 1218, and local aviation activities, by publicizing individual sponsorships, business sponsorships, scholarship awards, first solo flights, and successful completions of flight training in local media, chapter meeting minutes, and on the chapter website.
  5. Grow the membership of EAA Chapter 1218 by helping to create more general aviation pilots, in this area, which will hopefully become the future of our organization.


Award a $2,500 scholarship to any individual, that resides within the 9 county geographic area covered by EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218, to be used for primary flight training with the goal of obtaining a Private Pilot, Sport Pilot, or Recreational Pilot License. The scholarships will be awarded without regard to age, sex, or financial status.  Applicants will become eligible by first taking a young eagle flight, an eagle flight, or demonstrating previous flight experience, then completing and submitting an application to EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218.  When an applicant is approved to receive a scholarship, the applicant will be required to join both the national Experimental Aircraft Association and the EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218.  The applicant will pay for primary flight instruction (plane rental, fuel, instructor fees) at any flight school, or with any Certified Flight Instructor, of the applicant’s choice, and then submit proof of payment to EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 for reimbursement.  The EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 Scholarship Program will be managed by the EAA Chapter 1218 executive committee and will be limited only by the number of applicants approved or by the funds available.


The EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 Scholarship Program was initially funded by the generous donations of individuals to the Jerry Smith Scholarship Fund.  These existing funds and any future funds raised for the sole purpose of supporting the chapter 1218 scholarship will be used to fund this scholarship program.  This will assure all supporters and sponsors of the scholarship program that their contributions will only be used for the scholarship program and will not be used for any other chapter 1218 activities or obligations.  Future funding will be secured by:  1. Donation jar clearly marked scholarship fund at all meetings and EAA events for individual or anonymous contributions.  2. Fund raising activities that are organized and conducted by EAA members for the sole purpose of raising money for the scholarship fund such as craft sales, garage sales, raffles, bake sales, etc.  3. Individual Sponsorships:  Diamond level $500, Gold level $250, Silver $100, Bronze $50.  Business Sponsorships:  Diamond level $1,000, Gold level $500, Silver $250, Bronze $100.  Sponsorships would be publicized with pictures in local media, distributed in chapter meeting minutes and on the chapter website.
