20.  Development of the Algie LP1 Carbon Fiber Kit Aircraft - Mark Long will present the history of the development of the Algie LP1 (Light Plane 1) and current status.  With Mark Long - The LP1, or 'Light Pressurized 1', began over 15 years ago in the mind of David Algie. It wasn’t just an idea 15 years ago though, work actually began on this airplane that far back, and the basic shape has been frozen for quite a long time. The LP1 is a two-place, pressurized, carbon fiber kit aircraft powered by an adapted Chevy Corvette LS engine that is intended to operate at altitudes as high as 29,000 feet (with sea level cockpit pressurization) and cruise at 385 mph burning just 14.5 gallons of fuel per hour. Even more astonishing is the goal for a 1,080 pound empty weight which will give this aircraft the ability to carry two 200 pound people, 50 pounds of baggage, and 62 gallons of fuel… all with a gross weight of just 1,902 pounds.  EAA Chapter 14, Brown Field Airport, 1409 Continental St, San Diego, CA 92154  10 a.m.

7.  "SHIFTING GEARS - Risk Strategies for XC Thermal Soaring" -  WEBINAR -  Minimizing your chances of landing out, reducing risks and maximizing your points the Probability and Statistics.... Eastern Daylight Time (17:00 PDT, 18:00 MDT, 19:00 CDT, 14:00 HST, 16:00 AKDT, 17:00 Arizona, 00:00 GMT) - How many times have landed out, looked up and wondered what the heck went wrong? The most frustrating aspect is that it is never clear whether the events that lead to a land out are bad decisions or simply bad luck. The guidance most soaring pilots receive is that it is necessary to “SHIFT GEARS”.

Experienced pilots will say to look out ahead, recognize that the weather is changing and that you should either slow down and become less selective about thermals or “step on the gas” and start flying more aggressively. But what classifies this actual change?    More INFO
