No one will have anything really useful to say, but there will be beer.

Be nice to him, or find yourself parked in the South 40.

  • 2:30pm: Air Show Opener - A big RV formation display to open the air show - Lots of RVers have invested a lot of time and money into participating in this - don't miss it! Plus Jerry "Jive" Kirby in his RV-8A!

  • 6:00pm: Van's Banquet - and sorry, this event sold out ridiculously quickly! We tried to find a larger venue, but was not possible.

I'm just honored to be associated with "nothing really useful to say." Story checks.

He doesn't get enough props. He's a really good guy and really helps in HBP. Also don't mess with a retired detective!!

Default FlyONSPEED Team at Oshkosh 22

The FlyONSPEED team is happy to be supporting this year's "One Week Wonder," and we'll have a small AOA/Energy Management display in the tent with the Sonex build. There will be a simulator and resources for folks that want to learn more about angle of attack. Assuming we can round up sufficient bodies, we'll plan to be at the display in the morning each day to answer any questions or just talk energy management/aircraft handling. We'll be installing hardware in the Sonex Thursday-Saturday.

We are participating in the panel discussion "Optimizing the Impossible Turnback" at 0815 Monday in Forum 9.

Tron and Chris are presenting an update to the HUD project on Wednesday at 1130 in the Homebuilder's Hangar.

We'll be conducting a forum on Performance Based AOA Cuing and the McDonnell logic we use in the ONSPEED system on Friday at 1000 in Workshop Classroom A.

Not AOA related but in keeping with our LOC mishap prevention mission, Terry is conducting a brief on Protected Flight Controls on Friday at 1130 in Forum 8.

Most of us will be around all week. Drop an email to team@flyonspeed.org, text or call (850) 974-4472. Happy to meet up to discuss AOA/HUD/EM or just share a beer.

Cheers,

Vac

"Every air war produces one truly memorable book. Buck Wyndham's is the one for Desert Storm. [His] war was up close and personal, and he writes with a passion and clarity that will long remain with his readers. This is a book that takes its place besides such classics as Johnny Johnson's Wing Leader and Jack Broughton's Thud Ridge--a classic not to be missed."
--Dr. Richard P. Hallion, The Air Force Historian, 1992-2002
