Fitchburg Pilots Association EAA Chapter 1454 Monthly Meetup


Every 2nd Tuesday of the month

Location visible to members


Speaker for our February meeting will be Graeme Smith.

Graeme Smith is in the habit of flying open ended cross country trips with a tent and sleeping bag. His title of this adventure is Triple Tree and Florence.

It’s not the final destination—it’s the adventures along the way—that make the trip. Come see how I prep to camp under the wing and how it helped with one such “adventure” to the Triple Tree fly-in in South Carolina. How the approach of Hurricane Florence meant that cutting and running early to stay ahead of the storm turned a simple 650 mile trip home into a 7 day slog under the constant threat of “Get-There-It-Is”.


The meal for February will be our world famous (not really) chili bake off. I’m looking for 5 or 6 pilot’s to bring in a crock pot of their BEST chili. Our winner two years in a row will not be attending, so the field is WIDE OPEN! We will be providing Fritos, soft drinks, maybe a salad, and desert. As always, dinner at 6, meeting begins at 7.
