ANN has learned that one of the ridiculous messes created by Washington's inability to prove that it has ANY abilities, namely in terms of governing, has come to an end as the FAA and DoT have caved in and relented on their tower closure fiasco. EAA has traditionally held its membership meeting on the final Saturday of AirVenture, but that will be changing this year and its a change that ANN feels very positive about. The meeting will be held mid-week this year, according to EAA Chairman Jack Pelton. Members will get together on Wednesday, July 31st at 8:30 AM. AirVenture is the organization’s annual convention. One of the developmental prototypes of the Maverick LSA/Flying Car went down this weekend after its parachute canopy suffered some mode of malfunction (as yet unexplained) and went down with minor injuries to pilot Ray Siebring and his passenger.
