"The Voice of Public Benefit Flying" sm
Bulletin 7-7-10








1)  Special Meeting at AirVenture 2010 to discuss NTSB Safety Recommendations for Volunteer Pilot Medical Transport Operations


2)  Volunteers Wanted for Public Benefit Aviation Tent at AirVenture 2010


Please read carefully the information below regarding both subjects!

1)  Volunteer Pilot Organization representatives should attend a special meeting at AirVenture 2010 to discuss the recent NTSB Safety Recommendations.


In a recent Bulletin we sent out details about the NTSB recommendations, which were developed following their analysis of four accidents involving volunteer pilots conducting flights in support of patient transport operations.


EAA has kindly provided ACA and all group representatives a meeting room at AirVenture 2010 so we can discuss the recommendations and ACA's response to NTSB, as well as the actions groups may consider regarding the recommendations. We also expect several agency and association VIP's to attend.


The meeting will be on Tuesday, July 27, 10 AM - 11:55 AM.  Details of the meeting are provided in the attached PDF file. 


You may also see all the prior information about the NTSB Recommendations and the questions to be answered by visiting the NTSB Recommendations Page at:



The page includes links to the NTSB letter containing their recommendations as well as for other information.  Please be sure to review all the information carefully.

2)  Exhibit Tent Volunteers Needed for Public Benefit Aviation Tent at AirVenture 2010



We are asking you to participate again in this year’s Public Benefit Aviation promotion at EAA Air Venture 2010, Oshkosh, Wisconsin!

Our tent will be providing an awareness-generating opportunity for you and your organization and for recognizing the GA community for its positive influence on the lives of others.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity at Oshkosh this year!


EAA wholeheartedly supports volunteer pilots’ generous efforts to serve those in need and their communities.  By volunteering at the tent you can share your charitable aviation experiences with fellow general aviation pilots and enthusiasts. 


The Public Benefit Aviation tent will be located near AeroShell Square.  The tent will provide visitors with information about the various opportunities available to pilots and will display the stories of those who have benefited from Public Benefit Aviation.  As with last year, banners and videos will show how general aviation is used to help the needy and serve our communities.

We need volunteers like you to assist in the exhibit tent, welcoming and engaging the visitors in the many activities we have planned.  Last year our volunteers did a great job representing the world of Public Benefit Aviation to other pilots and to the general public, and enjoyed meeting one another.  We even had an opportunity for a large group photo at AirVenture! 

Would you volunteer a shift or two at the Public Benefit Aviation tent?

Here below is the schedule for the week.  Please email ACA President Lindy Kirkland TODAY with:

     Your Name
