We are saddened to learn that EAA’s First Lady, Audrey Poberezny, died on Sunday morning, November 1, in Oshkosh. Chapter 288 extends its deepest sympathy to the Poberezny family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Statement from Jack J. Pelton, Experimental Aircraft Association CEO and Chairman of the Board, on the death of Audrey Poberezny, wife of the EAA’s late founder Paul Poberezny. Audrey died in Oshkosh on Sunday, November 1, at age 95:
“The quiet power behind the leader in EAA’s formation and development was certainly Audrey Poberezny. She supported Paul from the very earliest days of EAA, from being the sounding board for ideas and balancing the books, to answering the phone and typing out membership cards. Audrey did whatever needed to be done, but never sought the spotlight for herself. Her understanding of people was also a gift that helped EAA grow and thrive into its unique place in aviation, and her warmth will be remembered by all who knew her. She was indeed EAA’s First Lady.
“Our deepest condolences to her children, Tom and Bonnie, and to the entire Poberezny family. Our best remembrance is to live up to the high standards and inviting culture that Paul and Audrey began with EAA nearly 70 years ago.”
The FAA announced plans to put visual navigation and planning charts on a 56-day publication cycle early next year, streamlining the process of updating charted information and causing some charts now in use to become obsolete earlier than their published expiration dates.
The Helicopter Association International (HAI) reaffirmed its commitment to holding its in-person, annual Heli-Expo trade show in 2021. The show is slated to be held March 22 to 25 in New Orleans.
Alluding to the recent positive announcements concerning several Covid-19 vaccine trials in the last few weeks, HAI president James Viola said, “If you're following the news, there are developments on the horizon that promise a return to normalcy and to doing business as we once did. I'm looking forward to seeing you and the rest of our industry—safely—in New Orleans.”
Viola noted that more than 350 companies to date have committed to exhibiting at the show and that numerous safety protocols will be in place. These include the following measures: creating a socially distanced show floor, meetings room, registration areas, and public areas; building extra time into the event schedule for thorough, repetitive cleaning; setting up additional mobile badge-printing stations to limit touchpoints; providing hand-sanitizer stations throughout common areas and the show floor; limiting show floor attendance to industry professionals; giving Covid-19 safety kits with masks and hand sanitizers to all attendees; mandating masks in the convention center; and conducting temperature checks at convention center entrances.
Munich-based startup lilium unveiled an all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) passenger jet, planning to have its fleet of five-seat air taxi operating in cities worldwide by 2025. one year later, the company has announced plans for its first US vertiport to be located at orlando’s aerotropolis in lake nona. the chosen location provides the opportunity to connect more than 20 million floridians within a 186-mile radius and will generate more than 100 jobs in the area.
In addition to publishing the 29th and 30th editions of its Joseph T. Nall Report, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Air Safety Institute (ASI) has launched a new platform designed to provide “access to more current accident data in near real-time.” According to AOPA, the new platform will allow accident data to be updated on a rolling 30-day cycle. It will also let users select and compare accident analysis graphs for multiple years from 2008 up through 2020.

EAA CHAPTER 288 MEMBER AND OUR
2020 RAY SCHOLARSHIP AWARD WINNER
AS HE RECENTLY SOLOED. WAY TO GO BRENDAN!!!
Chapter 288 started in the 1970s, and originally met at nearby Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The chapter took regular trips to the Spruce Creek Fly-In, located in Port Orange, Florida, and soon moved their meeting location to Spruce Creek. Chapter 288 is unique, because of it's location. 288 is located at the intersection of young aviation enthusiasts from the University and experienced aviators along Florida's Space Coast.
Chapter 288 works to continue the spirit of general aviation in Daytona Beach area. We host several events throughout the year for our members which feature prominent aviators and aviation technology. Chapter 288 members also volunteer at aviation related functions throughout the community to teach people about general aviation. Volunteering at local airshows and hosting
Young Eagles events are some of the ways that EAA 288 members participate in the community. Chapter 288's members are also very involved with the EAA on a national level. The chapter has a good turnout at the EAA's annual fly-in "AirVenture" in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The EAA works on a national level to help endure the "spirit of aviation." They work to get children who have an interest in becoming a pilot, air traffic controller, mechanic, etc. achieve their goals. EAA sponsors workshops for homebuilders teaching skills neccesary for them to build their own airplanes. Founded in 1953 by Paul Poberezney, the EAA has worked for over 60 years to keep general aviation alive and prospering into the future. They work today with other aviation organizations to ensure that aviation friendly laws are passed in Washington D.C., and to help ensure that general aviaiton will continue well into the future.
