The Start of a Long Day

Charlie Becker, EAA Homebuilt Community manager at the Tech Councilor and Flight Advisor breakfast.

Our community relies on the generous time devoted by EAA Tech Counselors and Flight Advisors to ensure good builds and safe first flights. Part of their informal “recurrent training” is the annual group breakfast at AirVenture. Not just a social event (how social are people at 7 am on the Thursday of a long week!), it is a chance for EAA Homebuilt Community Manager Charlie Becker to welcome and thank the group, Tom Charpentier to give an update on happenings with the FAA that may impact homebuilding, and KITPLANES contributor Vic Syracuse to provide lots of helpful hints on things for Tech Councilors to look out for. They even had terrifically helpful shop posters to hand out to the gathering.

Vic Syracuse shared his knowledge and experience as a DAR, Tech Councilor, and A&P specializing in Homebuilts.
