Next Date April 14
Our esteemed educator Tom Traeger will be presenting some interesting and fun opportunities for sharing model aviation with students. He will present these at the March 14 meeting. We think you will be interested in these activities and a chance to interact with the model aviators of the future.
Largest Airplane Taxi Test at Mojave
The world's largest plane is a step closer to its first flight after passing another major milestone.
Named Stratolaunch, the aircraft - which has a wingspan longer than a football field - sped down the runway at 40 knots (46mph/74kph) in its latest low-speed taxi test, firing all six of its 8,940lbs (4,000kg) engines.
Once testing is complete, the aircraft will help to fire satellites and other objects into space, including a 'Dream Chaser' spaceship that could shuttle astronauts or payloads to and from low Earth orbit within 24 hours.
The Stratolaunch, which is so large it needs twin fuselages each equipped with its own cockpit, is expected to take to the skies for the first time in 2019.

FAA Registration Reinstated
The requirement that all unmanned RC aircraft weighing over 250 grams has been reinstated by act of Congress. If you registered initially and did not request refund and cancellation, you need take no action. If you did not register, you now must register. One registration covers all your hobby aircraft. Commercially used aircraft must be registered individually. AMA and FAA numbers must be posted on the aircraft. Clubs will not be required to enforce FAA registration.
