    Back in the throws of the liability crisis of the early 1980s, EAA
directed all its chapters to divest themselves of chapter owned aircraft
for fear the International organization would be sued in the event of an
accident.  To provide the separation, many new flying clubs were created. 
I suggest you send Sharon Heuer an e-mail note asking her to check with
Tommy as to the EAA's current thoughts on this subject.  I haven't heard
anything differt since Paul's original edict.  I'm very interested in the
reply, so please post or ask Sharon to post here answer here for all of
us.  Eric.
