FULL MOON FLYOUT SUCCESS X 2 !! After too many months of less than stellar WX during recent full moons, August held out two days of clear, calm evenings. Trip one was a solo hop down to North Central (RI) for a pilot BBQ in the AirVentures hangar. The full moon rose on the way home, albeit at ‘5 o’clock’ and not visible from the left seat. The next day found 39W headed out on an adventure to a new destination with a pilot friend from 6B6 and a quick stop at KFSZ to pick up another. We headed to a delightful BBQ at the 2700’ grass Bayport Aerodrome south of Islip, NY. Homeward, the full moon rose on schedule over our nose at ‘2 o’clock’. Two great nights reminding me how fortunate I am to be able to fly quickly to otherwise unreachable distant destinations!
September’s Full Moon Fly Out, Set for the 16th – 22th, is great for introducing folks to GA. Consider inviting a fireman, policeman, selectman, reporter, state rep, or senator to go with you. Spread the word about the benefits of GA while having a good time. Call OPS for our destination.
‘ONCE AROUND THE PATTEN’: Airfield Apiary Honey now available at Nancy’s; order Cloudland Farm firewood at OPS; Hangar and Office Space opening up this fall – call OPS for details.
