The Aviation MB field trip is this Sunday, 23 Feb 14.  We will be going to the Aviation Museum in College Park.  Scouts will need to provide their own transportation but I will meet those who want to carpool in the church parking near the field at 0930.  The museum opens up at 1000 and has various activities throughout the day.  The scout (and family, if joining us) should expect to stay for an hour or two.  The museum entrance fee is: $4 for adults and $2 for children 1& under free).  See the directions below for those who want to head down on their own.  All scouts are invited BUT those doing the Merit Badge need to attend for one of the MB requirements (4c).  If the scout is working on the MB and can't make it this Sunday, the scout can scan a copy of their receipt/ticket stub from a trip with their family and email it to me.  The date on the receipt/stub must be after Dec 12, 2013 as that is when we started the MB.

For those missing requirements, we can work on requirements 1a-e, 2e and 5 at the museum if the scout is missing those.  If the scout is missing 3b, we must do that either before, during or after an upcoming meeting.  In order to get the final requirement (2f), the scout must make a poster of the cockpit instruments we went over for 2e (attitude indicator, heading indicator, altimeter, airspeed indicator, turn and bank indicator, vertical speed indicator, compass, navigation (GPS and VOR) and communication radios, tachometer, oil pressure gauge, and oil temperature gauge) and show it to me.

Here are the address/directions to the museum:
