Come to Our Free Monthly Meetings

We hold monthly meetings where our presenters speak on a broad variety of topics: aviation and flying safety, how to build airplanes, flying around the country in an open cockpit aircraft, flying a blimp, and many other topics. Many of our programs are authorized by the FAA for WINGS [continuing education] credits. The meetings are free and open to all, and usually occur on the first Tuesday of each month.

Our Next Meeting

– – High Flying Around Mountains – by Ken Meines – –

Kenny will speak about the challenges of flying in the mountains and taking off and landing at high altitude airstrips. The Do’s, the Don’ts, and all the What If’s. He is going to go through the POH and beyond sharing his many real life flying experiences in the mountains.


Kenny Meines has over 17,000 hrs of total time. The majority has been operating in heavily loaded spray planes in the hills of the Palouse in Pullman Washington. Kenny is very close to all the really great back country airstrips in Idaho and spent many hours mountain flying. He is also an aerobatic pilot, test pilot and owned his own floatplane part 135 operation.
