Up, Up and away!!!

Dateline Romeoville- December 15th, 2019: We are happy to report that EAA Chapter 15 member Ray Moeller successfully flew his Steen Skybolt on December 15th, 2019.  There was no fanfare since he decided the night before that it was time. With slightly over 8 years of building his beautiful piece of artwork, we can finally call it an airplane. We really don’t have much to write about this event since it was a last minute decision, and only a couple people were there to witness this great event, but we know Ray will be penning an article for next months newsletter. He did manage to compile a video of his first flight which can be found here: Full Flight Video

Congratulations Ray on this long endeavor and we’re waiting to see which next project he’s up to next.

About the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)
The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. It is a diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. The EAA was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own aircrafts. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and commercially manufactured aircraft. An interest in aviation is the common denominator that brings our people together, in good fellowship and sharing. The EAA is a national organization and has local chapters, such as ours, all over the world. You don't have to be a pilot to join in, the only requirement is a love for aviation.
