1.1  Items arising
are embedded in the agenda items below

2.0  - President’s report
as listed separately

3.0  - Treasurer’s report
The year’s accounts have been completed and will be audited by Ray to suit his commitments. It is notable that despite interruptions to operations, the club generated a small surplus and operating hours were comparable to recent years, ie the operating intensity increased.

3.4  quotes be sought for future Form 2 carried out externally   GREG

3.5  hangar keepers insurance     
what does it cover, what is premium, via GFA     ROB

4.0  - CFIs report
Lindsay will retire at end of year, Greg will take on position.
they will work toward smooth handover

Small instructor numbers limits flying opportunities - looking to growing numbers later
In the interim, will apply small numbers in best way we can.

5.0  - Airworthiness report
There have been no operations, as since engine repair the observed CHT are high, with likely short term damage.
Many cooling improvements have been made, with no improvement achieved. Engine agent has flown FFQ and confirms unacceptable temps. Manufacturer and agent say engine performance is ok, and cooling is airframe issue.

The meeting considered:
- Baylee & BJ will trial very low viscosity oil and internal ducting
- accepting 5pm phone conference proposal that the existing engine be returned to agent who will assemble another engine for fitment to FFQ.
Agent also provided a WA contact who may have objective temp data on another Limbach/G109. As many G109 temp records are anecdotal – where 170deg limit is not known, where gauge may be unreliable, etc. and hence comparative situation is not useable.
- options beyond this to be further considered include buying an old G109 which has a young engine and use it for spares.

The aircraft issue for the club to be further pursued by accumulating funds – in line with change in club fees – to build a surplus toward aircraft purchase.
