Greetings Chapter 1111 members,
Although the CoVid pandemic doesn’t seem to be done with us yet, our last few get-togethers Indicate we are pretty done with isolation. So if you haven’t heard yet, this month we are meeting again in the FBO hangar. The regular meeting date has been moved to the SECOND Thursday of the month to allow a little more lead time for planning. We also like starting a little earlier, especially during those dark winter days, so we’ll open for socializing at 5:30 pm.
Big Al plans his traditional Chili dog feed for the hungry among ye, so as usual let us know if you’re coming so we bring enough for all.
Text at (858) 357-3812
Or email To: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you all there!
President EAA Chapter 1111

PHYSICAL CONDITION (HEALTH) MIGHT DICTATE AIRCRAFT CHOICES
In selecting a certified or experimental aircraft for personal use, our physical condition may limit the choices.
The standard 3rd class medical applies up just about any aircraft. If you can pass the 3rd class, many opportunities exist for the private pilot.
Then comes the Basic Med but there are restrictions on the number of passengers and aircraft complexity and more… Basic Med has been touted as the answer to those who “can’t pass” a 3rd class medical. There is one 3rd class medical “hoop” to jump through to become Basic Med eligible
Below is from the AOPA web site. Do you qualify for Basic Med?
• Hold a valid U.S. driver’s license and comply with any restrictions (for example, corrective lenses, prosthetic aids required, daylight driving only, etc.).
• Have held a valid FAA medical certificate, regular or special issuance, on or after July 15, 2006
• If you’ve never held a medical certificate, you will need to get an FAA medical certificate, regular or special issuance, from an AME one time only.
• If your regular or special-issuance medical certificate lapsed before July 15, 2006, you will need to get a medical certificate from an AME one time only.
• If you have a medical history or diagnosis of certain cardiac, neurological, or mental health conditions, you will need a one-time only special issuance for each condition.
• If your most recent medical certificate has been suspended at any point in time or revoked, your most recent authorization for special issuance was withdrawn, or your most recent medical application was denied, you will need to obtain a new medical certificate before you can operate under Basic Med.
Next month, Sport Pilot medical depends on a valid drivers license, but there is more to it. Here again, a failed FAA medical in the past has to be remedied.

SOMETIMES IT’S THE HANGAR SHOP
Went to re-torque my prop and found a cracked weld at the muffler. Yep, it’s always something, ain’t it?
AVIATION ODDITY VIDEO THE THRASHER BROTHER
AVIATION ODDITIES by Jerry Sorrell
Following WW-2 some interesting aircraft combinations were born, just to be different. The Thrasher Brothers Ercoupe Twin is a fitting name
Check out the Thrasher Airshow!
A Tripacer with two Engines developed by Wagner in Portland OR
Looks like a mix of Super Cub and J-3. There is a prop hub extension on one so the blades miss.
