Sport Aviation Magazine - A Call For Submissions

Posted by EAA Chapter 1611 on November 29, 2017 at 8:30 AM

Sport Aviation magazine needs your ideas for content. Especially in the "hints for homebuilders" section.

I had a posted online an idea I had for inexpensive DIY cleco caps - I believe I posted it to Facebook, but now I can't recall exactly. I thought it was a pretty cheezy idea, and it is of only limited use, but it could save a couple of bucks I guess. But EAA happened across it and sent me an email asking me to write it up for them and send a couple photos.

It was published a few months back. I just recently received a very nice thank you letter from Charlie Becker (Director of Chapters), and he threw in a cool EAA Sport Aviation Contributor cap.

Here is a video of the DIY cleco caps:

I know some of you have some great tips and ideas that would be perfect to submit to Sport Aviation. Do it. See your name in print!
