|Each Month Board Meeting|
|Usually the second Thursday of every month. Due to OSH, the August meeting is usually delayed to 3rd Thur.
The Board Schedule is as follows:
|Oct 23 IAC 38 + EAA Founderís Innovation Prize winner at Hiller|
|When I discovered that the 2016 EAA Founderís Innovation Prize winner Ihab Awad lived in San Jose, CA, I had an inspired idea. He should come and speak at our Northern California International Aerobatic Club chapter meeting! It would be most excellent to get a pilot/engineer who is working to solve loss of control accidents in the same room with a bunch of competition aerobatic pilots who stall and spin their airplanes all the time. ON PURPOSE.
Join the International Aerobatic Club Chapter 38 and the 2016 EAA Founderís Innovation Prize winner Ihab Awad for lively presentation at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, CA. The guest list includes EAA and IAC board members, Founderís Innovation Prize judges, aviation legends, airshow stars and other luminaries.
Weíd love it if you could come.
Sponsored by Airbus, the 2016 Founderís Innovation Prize aimed to find innovative solutions to reduce the loss of control accident rate in the general aviation community by 25% in 5 years and 50% in 10 years. Renowned aviation experts Charlie Precourt, EAA Safety Committee Chairman and NASA shuttle commander; Dick VanGrunsven, Vanís Aircraft founder; Rod Machado, aviation educator and author; Dave Morss, civilian test pilot and air racer; and Michael Goulian, airshow performer and Red Bull Air racer, evaluated the 140 entrants. Judging criteria included low cost, ease of installation, wide applicability to the general aviation fleet and effectiveness.
Google engineer Ihab Awad won the $25,000 first place prize with his Airball project. Airball is an avionics solution that synthesizes relative wind air data and displays it graphically so that pilots may intuitively understand the current flight state of their airplane. A blue ball changes size and position as airspeed, angle of attack, and yaw change. Correct size and placement of the ball ensures that the airplane maintains a safe flight regime. Ihabís presentation will discuss the ideas and technology behind his project, what heís done with the prize money, and will include an open-mic forum for questions, comments and input throughout the talk.
Strategies to reduce loss-of-control accidents can encompass both training and technology. Letís combine our diverse collective genius to help drive creative solutions. You wonít want to miss the opportunity to be part of this important discussion.
