President's Corner

June's meeting was rounded out with an exceptionally interesting talk from member Lee Luck (checked shirt), a helicopter pilot in Vietnam.

Lee brought examples of special gloves and head gear worn and explained the purpose's of each. Lee had purchased a Bensen Gyro frame sans engine and brought his newly acquired Rotax 532 engine to the meeting.




Tom Taylor (far left), Treasurer and Rotax Engine Mechanic, explained some of the working principles of the 532, and how to inspect the engine to keep it in top shape.
