|How to Join|
Meeting: Thursday, January 10 at 7:00 pm
Speaker: Smokey Young
Location: HWD Administration Building conference room
Smokey’s recent presentation on his experiences flying the F-111 ranks as one of the best we’ve ever had! Besides flying the supersonic F-111 in the Air Force, and his current career as a Captain for Southwest Airlines, Smokey is an air race pilot! From 2003 through 2009 Smokey raced Formula 1 at the Reno Air Races and from 2008 through 2010 he was a race and display pilot for the Aero GP series, described as “the ultimate battle for air supremacy fought by highly trained military and civilian pilots from around the globe.”
Smokey will speak about racing Aero GP overseas in an Extra 300 as well as Reno Formula 1 racing and the world speed record he set in 2010. In addition, Smokey will speak about the genesis and development of his racing team from a one-man show (with Smokey as the owner-pilot) to a fully sponsored professional racing team/business.
Please join us on January 10th for what promises to be an exciting and very interesting presentation, and as always, bring a friend!

Vintage Aircraft Association Chapter 29Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy vintage airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter. We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft restorers, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community, and have a lot of fun doing so. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.
Located in Hayward, California, this Chapter was originally created as an EAA Antique/Classic chapter. In 1999 EAA changed the name of the Antique/Classic division to EAA Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA). Although this is a Vintage chapter, our members consist of pilots and non-pilots, singles, couples and families. Our pilots fly homebuilts, warbirds, light sport and production aircraft.
Our chapter is part of the worldwide network of Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA) chapters. VAA brings together people from around the world who share an interest in the aircraft of yesterday. Since it was established in 1971, VAA has been working to keep aviation history alive.
EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world's most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA's 160,000 plus members enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.
