    Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering, Friday and Saturday, April 27-28

    The Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering (GMAG) is soon upon us, Friday and Saturday, April 27-28, 2018!

    We have assembled a series of Hangar Flying sessions which will provide information and experiences which will make it worth your while to head to Minneapolis, to the Anoka County-Blaine Airport (KANE) to experience this event.

    This is certainly not to take away from the Great Alaskan Aviation Gathering, to be held the following weekend. No, Sir, EE. Our event is nothing but a mere drop in the proverbial bucket compared to the AK event. We have merely 43 exhibitors. We have a paltry 22 speakers, and not a single one of them will receive a dime for speaking at the event. No paid travel expenses. No mountains in the backdrop. Let's face it, folks, we just can't compete with AK!

    But what we can do is to provide some quality speakers drawn from a remarkable number of places! Our very own Mike Vivion will be presenting a two hour (it will seem like a one hour presentation...when he speaks, time flies) presentation on short field takeoffs and landings. We will be hearing presentations from Mark Baker, a super cub driver who moonlights at AOPA, we will be honoring our MN Master Pilots. Yours truly will be discussing FAA medical certification and BasicMed. We will be learning about the ADS-B mandate, about drones in our airspace. AOPA will be conducting the ONLY Rusty Pilots Seminar series in Minnesota this year at the GMAG!

    Beings that you are kin, I will share a bit about our event here on good ole Supercub.org. I hope to see you there.

    Heck, we are the WARMUP for the Great AK Aviation Gathering!

    Mark Baker

    “AOPA Town Hall Meeting”

    Saturday, April 28, 2018, 1:00 p.m.-1:45 p.m.

    Synopsis: Mark Baker is a dude. He has led what is likely to be the most important changes in general aviation history as he has been at the controls of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Mark returns to his native Minnesota to update us on what is happening at AOPA.

    Mark R. Baker is a longtime general aviation (GA) pilot and only the fifth president in the 79-year history of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). Prior to his appointment at AOPA, the Minnesota native served in numerous senior executive roles, including chief operating officer at Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, president and CEO of outdoor outfitter Gander Mountain Company, and chief merchandizing officer and executive vice president for The Home Depot. Most recently, he served as CEO of Orchard Supply Hardware Stores Corp., a leading retailer of home improvement and garden products. Having relied on general aviation for personal and business transportation for many years, he still prefers to fly low and slow in his Piper Super Cub, which he equips with floats or skis according to the season.
    Under Baker’s leadership, AOPA has seen several major victories for members and pilots. In 2016, AOPA led a successful campaign to end unwarranted searches of general aviation aircraft, and AOPA continues to work with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to improve the experience of pilots flying cross-border operations.

    In 2017, AOPA led the way for the biggest shift in aeromedical certification for general aviation pilots in decades with the implementation of BasicMed. The new reform has sparked interest across the globe to improve medical standards for GA pilots everywhere.
    Under Baker, AOPA has tackled a new issue – the detrimental effects of egregious FBO pricing on airport access at a number of locations across the country. AOPA filed three Part 13 Complaints with the FAA in 2017, and remains dedicated to helping airport sponsors promote transparency, access, and competition. In February of 2018, following more than 200,000 calls and letters from AOPA members, the House of Representations dropped legislation that would have removed air traffic control from the FAA. AOPA worked with hundreds of other aviation associations and other groups to coordinate a successful effort to beat back the latest attempt to take-over air traffic control.

    Committed to making general aviation more affordable and accessible, AOPA launched You Can Fly in 2015. With several initiatives focused on different ways to support and grow the pilot population, the You Can Fly Academy houses interactive classrooms, simulators, and industry leading facilities. The four initiatives under the You Can Fly umbrella – High Schools, Flight Training, Flying Clubs, and Rusty Pilots – focuses on the various ways AOPA is helping foster a healthy GA community. AOPA is building an aviation STEM curriculum for high schools across America. When complete, the program will be the first of its kind, offering students comprehensive four-year aviation study options that are aligned to rigorous math and science standards used in many states nationwide. The Flight Training Experience Survey and Awards recognize top flight schools and CFIs that are doing it right. Flying Clubs helps pilots fly more often for less money, and Rusty Pilots has helped nearly 5,000 pilots get back in the left seat.

    Baker is dedicated to making sure aviation is accessible and affordable to everyone and is always working to promote each AOPA initiative created to protect the freedom to fly.

    We are delighted, also, with the fact that Mark is a Minnesotan. While we are quite biased, we truly believe that he has become the most positively influential person in recent history from a general aviation perspective.

    Mike Vivion

    “Short Takeoff and Landing for the Masses”

    Friday, April 27, 1:00-1:45 p.m., 2:00-2:45 p.m.

    Synopsis: Mike Vivion is a national treasure of aviation information, particularly as it applies to backcountry aviation. Mike will provide insight into operating our aircraft safely in environments which demand precision takeoffs and landings.

    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.

    Mike Vivion, MTV as he is affectionately known here on Supercub.org, is truly a national treasure of aviation knowledge. His presentations are exceptional.

    Grant Wallace, Dan MacDonald

    “Owner Assisted Maintenance 101”

    Friday, April 27, 10:00-10:45 a.m.

    Synopsis: Grant and Dan will provide an overview of what is OK for us, as aircraft owners, to do when it comes to maintenance on our aircraft. These fellows possess a wealth of information, and we are thankful for their participation.
    Grant Wallace began his aviation career in 1992 when he joined the military as a national guardsman. This opportunity gave him maintenance experience ranging from small rotorcraft large transport aircraft. He earned his private pilot certificate while serving in the military and going to school to earn his A&P certificate. Upon graduating he worked in the airline industry for a short period before going into general aviation. Over the years he has earned a commercial certificate, instrument, and seaplane rating and an Inspection Authorization. He has experience in many different aircraft and remains a very active pilot. Grant is married to his wife Jean and they have a thirteen-year-old daughter Bridget who enjoys flying every chance she gets. His most recent focus is with Aerotechnique, an aircraft maintenance business he started in 2016 based at the Fleming Field in South Saint Paul. Aerotechnique is a professional aviation maintenance organization that puts safety, quality, and value at the forefront of our services. It is located on Fleming Field in a well-equipped 6000+ square foot facility. Their services include all of the traditional general aviation maintenance and inspection services that you would expect in a professional organization. All work is performed by trained & experienced technicians who stand behind the high standards we have established. Additionally, they are completely prepared to address the Federal Aviation Administration’s 2020 mandate of equipping aircraft with ADS-B functionality. Aerotechnique is a fully insured and licensed commercial operator in the state of MN.

    Dan MacDonald ​has been active in aviation since graduating from Colorado State University in 1977. He earned his Private Pilot rating in 1978, and purchased his first airplane after completing a Master’s Degree from the University of Minnesota in 1983. Dan's aviation involvement broadened in the 1990’s through co-ownership of a very active flight school named Alpha Aviation Inc. With up to ten aircraft, each flying 100 hours per month, they performed a 100 hour inspection every three days and an engine overhaul every two months. During this time Dan acquired additional flight ratings including instrument, commercial, multi-engine, flight instructor, and multi-engine flight instructor. Dan currently manages technology for a major international airport. Dan has owned, operated, and maintained a wide variety of aircraft, including his current 1960 Beechcraft Debonair and 1980 Beechcraft Skipper. Dan spends most of his spare time caring for his twin teen daughters, recently adopted from Colombia. Dan can be contacted at dan@aircraftmaint.com.

    Grant Wallace is well known to Supercub.org people, particularly those who frequent New Holstein. He is known, by Wilbur, to do an awesome impersonation of an FAA inspector. He has opened his own maintenance shop in St. Paul MN and we are very supportive of him. An awesome fellow. Loves to speak in front of big crowds. Totally digs addressing the masses.

    Please visit our website at www.mnpilots.org for details, as the emerge. I will be putting the schedule of events up soon (did I fail to mention that the MN Pilots Assn has a HUGE contract with our very own SJ to provide IT for our organization???), provided that our IT guru can help make this happen.

    Oh, yes, Supercub.org's very own Sarah Dickerson is providing graphic arts support to our event by creating our program guide and all of our graphics arts needs. Her husband, Jim "Big Deal" Dickerson, is providing our commentary.

    The drawing will be held at noon on Saturday, April 28, and winners must be present to claim their prizes. We expect many more great items to be donated by our Sponsors, Exhibitors and Advertisers. I will update the list here as the event approaches! Hope to see some of you at the 2018 GMAG!

    Randy,

    Sweet raffle items, such good quality first offerings will hopefully attract more.

    I was looking to come up but Oklahoma State University’s College of Engineering’s ‘Speedfest 2018’ is that weekend and Molly’s Senior Aerospace design/build team will be flying that Saturday.
