    2017 Great MN Aviation Gathering

    Please mark Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30, 2017 on your calendars...for those of you who may not choose to attend the Alaska Airman's event. We are trying to stay away from the AK event, and hope you will be able to attend. We are in the planning stages, so if there is something you want to have included, please let me know.

    While it ain't the AK event, it is a time to celebrate Aviation, a time to celebrate the Coming Flying Season, and a time to enjoy the company of those who hold aviation high.

    Great! I had hoped that would be the case, but the AK Airmen haven't been as forthcoming, shall we say, in letting us know when they decided to hold their event.

    The 4th Annual Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering is just a few weeks away, and it is looking good!

    I have spared you the release of speakers and their corresponding presentations, but you can find them on our Facebook/mnpilots page. We have been posting these a couple at a time, just to tease those who are on the fence about attending...

    Also, please visit our website www.mnpilots.org/gmag for the schedule of events. You will see that we have put together a program that covers the breadth of general aviation.

    You will also see that we are welcoming unmanned aerial vehicles, aka drones, to our event. Like it or not, drones are sharing our airspace and we have chosen to embrace these pilots so that we can have dialogue as to how our shared airspace can be safely used. Is flying a drone the same as flying a super cub? No. Those drones, however, are low level and so are we. Let the dialogue begin!

    Yes, I am providing presentations each day, entitled (surprisingly) "BasicMed vs. 3rd Class Medical: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly". Timely, yes. These presentations will be given the day before BasicMed airspace goes HOT!

    Mike Vivion is providing his "Ski Plane Flying" presentation, and it is not to be missed. Mike is a founding board member of the MN Pilots Assn, and we are very thankful fo for his presence.

    Lastly, we are so fortunate to have IT infrastructure for the Minnesota Pilots Assn provided by none other than Steve Johnson. Steve has suffered through working with me and the gang at the MN Pilots Assn, and we are most appreciative of what Steve brings to our organization. Thank you, Steve.

    As leader of the MN Pilots Assn, I can say that this "Aviation Gathering" is a completely different beast than the Great Alaska Aviation Gathering. Both have their place, in my humble opinion, and they complement each other nicely. The AK event is heavy on exhibitors and light on education, whereas the MN event is heavy on education and light on exhibitors (we have 45 vs the 100+ of AK).

    I hope you will consider coming to the GMAG. Our event is the only annual aviation event that I can think of that is truly a "Fly In" event. If the weather is good, this makes it truly a regional event. If you have to drive in, hotels nearby will provide a comfortable place to stay.

    Yes, we will likely have a Supercub.org rally at my hangar on the Anoka County-Blaine Airport (KANE) on the Saturday evening, April 29. It will be an unofficial Supercub.org event, under the radar, totally unauthorized. Pizza is likely to be provided. Beer. Wine. Water. No salad, nor BAKED CHICKEN.

    Details and directions to be published here as the event approaches.

    (Rumor has it that Deano may be parking his RV by the hangar to supervise the activities)

    “Drones go to School”


    Love ‘em or hate ‘em, drones are here to stay. And guess what? They share our airspace and are regulated by the FAA, just like us. The Minnesota Pilots Association has made the decision to welcome our brother and sister drone pilots and what better way to do that than to hear a presentation by an established leader in drone pilot education, Jonathan Beck! Jonathan will give a presentation named “Drones Go to School”. We could not have a better speaker than Jonathan to enlighten us on unmanned aircraft systems, aka drones. He spoke at a previous GMAG and is a dynamic and energetic speaker. Please join us in welcoming Jonathan, and drone pilots, to our event!

    “Cirrus SF50 Vision --Overview of the First Personal Jet”

    Most of us really enjoy seeing nice, new, bright shiny things…like a new concept car, or a beautifully restored vehicle from days gone by. For me, growing up near Wichita, Kansas, it was always great to drive by the Cessna factory, or the Beechcraft factory, or the Learjet factory and see the bright, new shiny aircraft as they came out of the hangars onto the tarmac.
    Well, folks, you are in for a treat at this year’s GMAG! Gary Black, from Cirrus Aircraft Corporation, will be giving a terrific presentation about the Cirrus Vision SF50 business jet! Rumor has it that Cirrus Aircraft Corporation…one of our most devoted sponsors…will have one of their jets in the static display area at the GMAG! Please join us to hear Gary’s presentation! Details of his presentation will be posted on our website, www.mnpilots.org, in the very near future.

    "Zero Deaths in Aviation"


    Wouldn’t it be great if we had zero deaths from aviation-related accidents! Through the extensive flight training, medical examinations and recurrent training we are fortunate that we have a pretty good track record in aviation, in general, but there is room for improvement.
    Please join us to hear Rick Braunig, from the MNDOT Aeronautics, present “Toward Zero Deaths” at our Hangar Flying Sessions at the 2017 GMAG. We are fortunate to have a DOT that is quite active in aviation safety. The MN Pilots Association is very thankful for the MNDOT Aeronautics team sponsoring our event.
    Toward Zero Deaths in Aviation is taking a look at what we can do to reduce the number of fatalities each year. TZD on the highway side has data that shows their activities have resulted in fewer deaths on Minnesota roadways and they are continuing to drive those numbers downward. This presentation will review the aviation accident rates, examine how TZD in highways is being effective and look at how those techniques might be applied in aviation.

    “Insuring Your Aircraft: Impact of BasicMed and Other Considerations”

    Insuring our precious aircraft is an important part of being an aircraft owner, and the process of arranging for insurance can be confusing, frustrating and overwhelming. With the entry of BasicMed there is yet another variable that isn’t exactly clear to us yet. Please welcome Steve Bruss, President of Wings Insurance whose company has been a solid supporter of the Minnesota Pilots Association and the Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering. He will provide an overview of how to insure your aircraft and will enlighten us with the current status of insuring aircraft for those of us who operate under Sport Pilot or BasicMed, as well as the traditional FAA 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class medical certificate.

    “Expanding Aviation Culinary Arts: Fly In Hamburger Socials and Your Aviation Community”


    We know how much we love pancake breakfasts, don’t we?! They give us a chance to fly early in the morning, and who can pass up the chance to combine aviation with eating? Enter the concept espoused by one of our speakers, John Chmiel, CFI, CFII and airport manager at the Wausau Downtown Airport (KAUW). He has very effectively developed a network of airports, all within an easy flight of his airport, at which hamburgers are served to those pilots and their passengers who fly in. His model has spread across our neighboring state of Wisconsin, and we would like to see that work in Minnesota, hence his presentation, entitled “Expanding Aviation Culinary Arts: Fly In Hamburger Socials and Your Aviation Community”.

    John Chmiel states that he pretty much grew up at the airport. He is a second generation aviator and airport manager. John is the airport manager of the Wausau Downtown Airport (KAUW), and you will see John and his wife, Angela, at the airport just about any day of the week. They have two children. John is president of the Wausau Flying Service, Inc., and he points out that they “are not in the FBO business…we are in the Adventure business”. He is a flight instructor extraordinaire, specializing in taildragger instruction in his Stearman and Citabria. John has been enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks, and he says his graduation is pending. He has over 5000 hours total time, with 3000+ giving dual instruction. He is hopeful to become a Designated Pilot Examiner.

    “BasicMed vs 3rd Class Medical: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”

    One of the most fascinating and important pieces of aviation legislation passed in the United States Congress in memory was the so-called “Pilots Bill of Rights2”. This was signed into law on July 15, 2016 and the new aviation medical classification, which the FAA has named “BasicMed” has all of us excited about what could be the much-sought after relief from the traditional 3rd Class Medical Certificate. This BasicMed program becomes active on May 1, 2017, a day after the 2017 GMAG.
    Randy Corfman, PhD, MD, AME will provide a careful review of the BasicMed program, helping pilots understand who is eligible and to learn the advantages and disadvantages of the program, not only for pilots but also from their physician’s point-of-view. You will not want to miss his presentation at the 2017 GMAG!

    “Tips for a Long Term Relationship with Your Aircraft Engine”

    Well, you could make a good argument that the aircraft engine is one of the most important parts of an airplane. It certainly can make even the coolest pilot sweat when it stops turning the big fan up front. One of the things that we are thankful for is the fact that we have the finest engine repair and building companies right here in Minnesota. Bolduc Aviation. Kevin Dunrud and Tim Hieb are now owners of Bolduc Aviation, and are ever so slowly transitioning the name to “Horizon Aircraft Engine Services”, having been mentored for over 30 years by the venerable Darrell Bolduc. They will do a repeat performance at this years GMAG, speaking on “Tips for a Long Term Relationship with Your Aircraft Engine”.

Tim is married to Marsha and they have three children. They live in Ham Lake, Minnesota. Tim enjoys outdoor sports, particularly cross-country skiing in the winter and cycling pretty much year round. Yes, year round.

    Kevin Dunrud points out quickly that he is Norwegian. He then also points out that he was born in southern (tropical) Minnesota, but was raised in Baudette, MN, near the Lake of the Woods. After completing high school he attended the Technical College at Thief River Falls, MN, from 1978-79. The then accepted a position at the Baudette airport, working with Francis Einerson. He then accepted a position at Bolduc Aviation, where he has been for 35 years. Kevin is known for his expertise with aircraft engines. He is married to Tammy, and they have 3 daughters.

    “ADS-B In/Out options from Stratus by Appareo”


    Deadlines. I really have come to dislike deadlines. As you are no doubt aware, the deadline for ADS-B in/out is 2020, and it is sneaking up on us. We are fortunate in having neighbors in Fargo, Appareo, as a world leader in a number of aviation-related products, and even more fortunate in that Appareo has been a supporter of the Minnesota Pilots Association and the GMAG in the past. Kris Garberg, from Appareo, will provide an overview of ADS-B In/Out, as well as an overview of portable receivers for ADS-B in. Please join us in welcoming Appareo as Kris presents “ADS-B In/Out options from Stratus by Appareo”.

    Mark German

    “Preparing for the First Flight...Experimental Aircraft”


    You decide that building an aircraft is what you want to do. You do research, you convince your better half that it is the thing to do, you order the plans/kit and spend many, many, many hours building your airplane. Finally, it is ready to fly and…then what? That is where words from a person who has been there, done that become important. Mark German is one who can speak from experience, and we are delighted that he has agreed to speak at our GMAG, providing a presentation entitled “Preparing for the First Flight...Experimental Aircraft”. Please go to www.mnpilots.org, click on the GMAG and find Mark’s presentation on the schedule.

    Greg Herrick

    “Our Passion for Aviation”

    Winter finally is starting to feel like it is fading away, and Spring is feeling really good! The Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering is shaping up as the ice melts from the Land of 10,000 Lakes. We hope you will mark Saturday and Sunday, April 29 and 30 on your calendars to attend our annual event.
    It is with great pleasure that we announce that Greg Herrick, owner of the Golden Wings Flying Museum and aviation philanthropist, will be speaking at the 2017 GMAG. His presentation, entitled “Our Passion for Aviation”, will be reflections on vintage aircraft that grace his remarkable collection. Greg’s presentations are always remarkably entertaining, and we guarantee that you will come away sharing his passion for things aviation.

    Greg Herrick is one of the nation’s preeminent collectors of Golden Age aircraft and a recognized leader in the aviation community. As president of the Aviation Foundation of America, publisher of the Historic Aviation, Historic Rail and Military Issue catalogs. The Aviation Foundation of America organized the 2003 National Air Tour, operates America’s largest aviation event focused Web site, www.Fly-ins.com where each year Fly-ins.com posts and promotes thousands of aviation events around the United States. The Aviation Foundation is presently organizing the effort to create and install the Bob Hoover Trophy in Washington, D.C.

    For more than a decade and at his personal expense, Herrick pursued an effort to preserve and make available historic Approved Type Certificate application packages, including the original drawings, testing and construction data. After pursuing the matter to the United States Supreme Court, to make absolutely certain Herrick went to the U.S. Congress to make the issue a matter of U.S. law. This happened with the passing of the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act 2012 (HR 65. Labeled by its congressional sponsors as “The Herrick Amendment” the FAA is now required FAA to protect aircraft technical drawings and other design data from the dawn civil aviation in the United States and to make copies available to those who request them. Specifically, the bill mandates the preservation of vintage aircraft design data for 1,257 different makes and models of aircraft built in the United States from March 1927 through November 1939.

    In another decade long project, Herrick successfully prevailed in a project to remanufacture of ground adjustable metal propeller blades, and their hubs, critical for the safe operation of many vintage aircraft. This involved considerable research and persuasion to convince MT Propeller of Germany to start from the old designs and recertificate and manufacture the new blades. This culminated in 2012 with the FAA certification of the new hubs and blades for use in Standard Category aircraft. Deliveries are now being made to customers.

    Prior to his flying career, Herrick established several businesses including a personal computer manufacturer, ZEOS International. In 1991, ZEOS was named “America’s Fastest Growing Public Company” by Fortune magazine. In 1995, ZEOS was sold to Micron Technology, Inc. in a reverse merger. Following the reverse merger, Herrick created Minneapolis, Minn.-based, Sky Media, L.L.C. The direct marketing company publishes mail order catalogs Historic Aviation, Historic Rail and The Civil War Standard and Military Issue, and mails more than six-million catalogs a year. The company also operates the AircraftOwner Web site.

    Herrick’s’ collection of 40 Golden Age aircraft have been the subject of numerous features in magazine such as Forbes and Air & Space. He has appeared on radio and television stations across the country such as Discovery Wings, PRI’s “Savvy Traveler,” Voice of America Radio and CBS Radio. He also has appeared in international magazines and in hundreds of major daily newspapers.
    Herrick’s Golden Age aircraft collection includes one-of-a-kind airplanes including the first diesel-powered airplane, American Airlines’ oldest surviving airliner, the oldest flying metal aircraft in the world, a Ford Tri-motor, and such curiosities as a real flying car, the Taylor Aerocar. The collection is located at several restoration facilities across the country and at his main, 55,000 square-foot hangar at the Anoka County Airport (ANE) in Blaine, Minn. The airplanes are kept in flying condition and are flown by experienced aviators including Herrick.

    Among the many airplanes in his main hangar is a 1927 Avro Avian biplane. In September 2001, Herrick asked pilot Carlene Mendieta to fly it to re-create Amelia Earhart’s 1928 record-setting flight across America (www.AmeliaFlight.com). With the mission to raise awareness of Earhart’s contributions to aviation, Herrick and Mendieta were the subject of more than 500 television stories and 700 newspaper articles.

    In 2003, Herrick organized and led an aerial armada of volunteer pilots and more than two dozen vintage aircraft to re-create the National Air Tours, also known as the Ford Air Tours, of 1925-31. Edsel B. Ford II, upholding the legacy of his grandfather Edsel B. Ford, agreed to be the tour’s honorary chairperson. The 4,000-mile, 26-city tour in September captured the attention of millions of people.

    As a result of his dedication to preserving America’s aviation history, Herrick received a prestigious “Laurel Award” from Aviation Week & Space Technology and was the “Honored Guest” at the National Biplane Association’s 2004 Biplane Expo. On behalf of the Ford family, Edsel B. Ford II presented Herrick with the “Spirit of Ford” Award. It was the first time the award had been presented to someone outside of the automobile industry. In 2006 Herrick was named as one of the “Living Legends of Aviation” at the annual event considered “the Oscars of Aviation” which recognizes and honors individuals with “great and significant contributions to the field of aviation”.

    “Pilot Self-Assessment and Risk Management: Confidence vs Competence”


    Risk management is a concept that we deal with in many aspects of life. The importance of risk management and cockpit resource management has become recognized as being not only important in aviation, but also in medicine and business. We are very fortunate to have Paul Jackson as one of our dynamic speakers at our 2017 Great MN Aviation Gathering. Please check the schedule of events at www.mnpilots.org for the time and location of Captain Jackson’s presentation.

    Lynnwood “Woody” Minar

    “The Engine Failure Emergency: A Survival Guide”


    “Everything is really cool as long as the big fan up front is blowing, but when it quits the pilot begins to sweat!” This is something that we all should be thinking about as we begin our flights, and the checklist of what to do is something that really needs to be etched in our memory.
    We are most pleased to have Woody Minar, from our neighboring state of Wisconsin, address this issue in his presentation “The Engine Failure Emergency: A Survival Guide”. Woody is well-known as a terrific, entertaining speaker, having spoken at one of our events in the past. You will not want to miss his presentation!

    “Things CFI’s Probably Don’t Know (But Should)”

    “Aeronautical Decision Making and Risk Management for UAS Operators”

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are here to stay, folks, and the Minnesota Pilots Association has chosen to welcome UAV pilots to join us! We feel it to be import that we understand the UAV pilots and their rules, and that the UAV pilots understand us and our rules. Who better to explain this than the FAA, the organization that MAKES the rules?! Kevin is an extraordinary speaker and an FAA FSDO representative who relates well with pilots. We are fortunate to have him here.

    Neil Otey

    “ATC and the Pilot”

    Many of us learned to fly at non-towered airports. I remember how intimidating it was to fly into a towered airport, with me trying to fly the airplane (“fly the airplane first, communicate second!”) and listening to an ATC person who could have been an auctioneer. Intimidating. Well, it doesn’t have to be looked at that way, and we are so fortunate to have our GMAG at the Anoka County-Blaine Airport (KANE) where we are blessed with a terrific group of ATC specialists led by none other than Neil Otey. Neil has spoken at each and every one of our GMAG’s, and his sessions are sold out. Please join him as he presents “ATC and the Pilot”!

    Neil Otey has been an Air Traffic Controller at the Anoka County Airport for the past 12 years. Prior to this, he was a controller in the Minneapolis (MSP) tower/tracon for 19 years. Neil also has worked at the Crystal (MIC) tower, Minneapolis FSS, LaCrosse FSS, and with MSP Center. Neil holds a Commercial Pilot certificate with single/multi engine, seaplane, and instrument ratings; and is a Certified Flight Instructor. When the weather cooperates, you may see Neil flying from the Lake Elmo Airport to his job at the Anoka County Tower. Neil was recently named Air Traffic Manager of the Anoka County-Blaine Airport. While flying, we would expect his radio procedures to be perfect. Neil is an avid mountain biker and has been known to cut a mean rug on the dance floor.

    Steve Thibault

    “Instrument Approaches – Briefing the Approach Chart (And More!)”

    Let’s face it, instrument flight is challenging and we need to work diligently to stay on top of our skills and IFR procedures. Steve Thibault, CFI, CFII, the 2015 FAA Great Lakes Region CFI of the Year, will be sharing his thoughts on how we can best plan for making a successful and safe instrument approach. Steve is a founding MN Pilots Association board member, and we are proud to have him speak at this year’s GMAG.

    Steve Thibault began flying at the age of 15. He attended the University of North Dakota, which is where he first began his flight instructing career. After graduating from UND, with aviation and business degrees, Steve returned to the Twin Cities and began instructing at the Anoka County Airport. Since then, Steve has made the training of pilots his profession.

    During his 37 years of flying and his 32 years of flight instructing, Steve has accumulated over 18,000 hours of flight time, provided more than 17,000 hours of flight instruction in airplanes and 2,000 hours of instruction in flight simulators, has given an unknown number of hours of ground instruction, and has flown over 100 different types of airplanes.

    Steve is the owner of FlightProficiency, a flight training company and co-owner of Sim Flite Minnesota, a simulator company located at the Anoka County Airport.

    In 2015, the FAA named Steve the “CFI of the Year” for the Great Lakes Region.

    “Ski Plane Flying”

    It wasn’t very many weeks ago that we were enjoying ski plane flying in the Frozen North. Cold days, wonderful airplane performance, worrying about our skis becoming frozen to the ice, trying to preheat our engines…remember? Come to the 2017 GMAG and learn a thing or two about ski plane flying!
    We are very pleased that one of our esteemed Minnesota Pilots Association founders and board members, Mike Vivion, will be providing a wonderful presentation on his experience with ski plane flying in Alaska and in the lower 48. I heard this presentation in March at the Montana Aviation Conference and can attest that it is something that you will not want to miss! See you at the GMAG!

    Mike Vivion grew up in Montana, but learned to fly in Hawaii in 1969, and his first check ride experience wasn't the prettiest. He is a graduate of the University of Montana with a degree in Wildlife Biology. He served as a Wildlife Biologist and Airplane Pilot in Alaska for nearly 30 years, working and flying in many remote parts of Alaska. After his retirement from the Fish and Wildlife Service, he accepted a position at the University of Minnesota-Crookston, teaching and advising in the aviation program there. Mike "re-retired" in 2013, and he and his wife Gina moved to Bozeman, Montana, where they currently reside. Mike has been a flight instructor for over thirty years, and has written for numerous aviation publications. He has been a regular presenter at Montana Aviation Conferences for over ten years. Mike is one of the founding Board members of the Minnesota Pilots Association, where he continues to serve. He is now our “out state” board member. Mike is a proverbial fountain of knowledge about aviation. He has such a vast experience in general aviation and you will not want to miss his presentations.

    Congratulations to Steve Thibault. That is very commendable as there are very few who flight instruct as a profession. It takes devotion and a love of teaching and helping others. His students should be very proud of their instructor.

    Steve Thibault is an exceptional person. One of the bits of sage advice my first flight instructor gave to me many, many years ago was to "go get beat up by a flight instructor once a year". I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with Steve and we spend two days the first week of October doing recurrent training and instrument proficiency training. He has a passion for flight instruction. His father is a retired airline captain, and Steve saw the plus/minus of each route and chose, thankfully, flight instruction.

    We are holding the Pinch Hitter course on Saturday, April 29, for those of you who have significant others or friends who might like to gain knowledge on what to do in case the pilot-in-command becomes unable to complete a flight. Pass the word. AOPA apparently has plans to revive their Pinch Hitter course by the end of the year.

    Tee shirts. You and I know how important they are in a person's life. They are a statement. They show who we are. They show where we have been. Sure, you have a closet full of tee shirts, and you may, like me, have a few storage containers filled to the rim with tee shirts from days gone by. They lie there waiting to be worn once again, despite the urging of your significant other to purge these precious items from our wardrobe.

    The Minnesota Pilots Association recognizes the importance of tee shirts, and will have a limited supply of special designer tee shirts available for those who attend the 2017 GMAG! What could be better than that?! These were designed by none other than our very own Sarah Dickerson!

    Can they be mailed to you? No. You have to be there to purchase them in person, to wear them with pride!
