June 19, 2008 — This week saw the launch of EAA’s Bits and Pieces, a new e-newsletter and monthly information digest for builders and fliers in Canada. The newsletter aims to highlight issues of interests to Canadian aviation enthusiasts, plus honor the people and the places where amateur-built aircraft found a home in Canada. Jack Dueck, a longtime EAA member from Calgary, is the editor. Dueck serves on the EAA Homebuilt Aircraft Council, is a Technical Counselor and Flight Advisor, a member of the EAA Canadian Council, and founding president of EAA Chapter 1410 in High River. He also instructs at EAA’s SportAir Workshops and appears on several Hints for Homebuilders episodes, available on the EAA website.
“The newsletter will be aimed at Canadian recreation flying, and will be a unifying message for all Canadian flyers,” Dueck said. “I’ve always promoted Canadian members, being a Canadian myself, and I’m very honored and pleased with this opportunity,” Dueck said.
The newsletter’s name comes from the second Canadian-registered amateur built aircraft, a Baby Ace called Bits and Pieces, built by Gus Chisholm.
EAA’s newly restructured headquarters staff has created a focus on its international and, specifically, Canadian members’ interests. The goal is to provide its memberships with improved services in areas of publications, websites, chapter support, information services, and governmental advocacy and relations.
