New EAA video on Corvair College#27, Barnwell 2013.

Builders,

Charlie Becker, The EAA’s Director of Communities & Homebuilt Community Manager sent us a note, that the EAA has released a 7 minute film on you tube, a condensed version of the full length shoot they made about Corvair College #27 at Barnwell SC in 2013. This is timely, because we are leaving for Corvair College #31 at Barnwell in another 16 hours.

.

The video was developed specifically to send out to all local EAA chapters, to provide subject and content for meetings. Below is the short note from Charlie and the link to the video:

.

“Below is a link to the video Brady made for the Chapter Video magazine.  (Actually, it is a somewhat shortened version). It will be sent out to the entire membership in E-hotline on Thursday afternoon. Hope you have a successful weekend at Barnwell.  I wish I could be there.  Might be fun to play it for the group this year; especially for those that were there last year.  Give my best to PF Beck. -Charlie.”

Notes from the 2014 Zenith Open House, where Charlie was the featured speaker:

.

“The dinner this year gave me a change to say a few words about our friend, Charlie Becker, who is a director at the EAA, a man who played leading roles in both the EAA’s STOL 750 build and the One Week Wonder 750 Cruiser project. Grace and  I have known Charlie for more than decade, and I will assure anyone that a finer, more capable, more trustworthy man can not be found in experimental aviation. Charlie was personal friends with the EAA’s founder Paul Poberezney, Charlie understands Pauls’ vision and methods, and a strongly feel that tied with Charlie’s, building, flying and organizational skills, he is one of the most effective advocates and protectors of Homebuilding. Even if you have not met him, I will assure any EAA member that this man has worked tirelessly on causes that you care about strongly. For more thoughts on this get a look at: Speaking of Paul Poberezny -ww.”
