Dear Canard Enthusiast,
I wish to invite you to join Central States Association. To my knowledge, Central States Association is the only remaining organization that publishes a technical newsletter, of original material, directed strictly toward building and flying Rutan type aircraft. Our organization offers builder support through its 34 page newsletter. We also have a wheel pant mold which can be shared with builders. Its use could save a bit of money and get you components that are lighter than the prefab parts.
Central States Association is an organization of flyers and builders of Rutan type aircraft. Current membership is over 900 and, though largely confined to the United States and Canada, there are a few members in Europe, the Pacific islands, and Australia. The 34 page technical newsletter is published quarterly with membership costing $20 per year. If you choose to join please make checks payable to me and not Central States Association. I do not accept any bank cards in payment. The dues cover a calendar year, January to January. I do not sell membership lists to anyone so hopefully you'll not be plagued by insurance salesmen as a result of joining Central States Association. Back issues for 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997 are available for $20 per year or $5 per issue. The index of articles is printed in each January issue. A comprehensive index of all 2000+ articles is available for an additional $10.
Good luck on your canard interest. Please contact me if I may be of help. If you wish to join our organization or want further information please feel free to contact me. Presently, none of the issues are on electronic media. That is being researched as a possibility but has problems with updating, compatibility, low volume, as
well as recording photos and graphics.
If you decide to join Central States Association please inform me of your airplane type, it's total time or chapter in construction, N number, empty weight, prop manufacturer and specs. If you supply me with your current phone number/E-mail address I will place you on the emergency telephone tree for contact should an emergency design or operational problem be discovered.
Fly safely and enjoy your dream,
