    If you are more than 50% sure you might be coming to the PEI fly-in July 2 please let me know. As of Monday June 13 the "maybes" are:<br />
    <br />
    Corcoran, Dahab, Flood, Bucey.<br />
    <br />
    I will be traveling and out of email for most of the week 6/13 6/20. Then I will be in Canada. Last minute tips: <br />
    Have the normal FAA "ARROW" papers for your airplane.<br />
    NO, you do not need a radio operator's license! Canada requires only the same stuff the USA does.<br />
    <br />
    Copy your proof of having insurance.<br />
    Have proof of citizenship for both coming and going.<br />
    <br />
    Duty free bring one bottle of booze 1.2 (liters) and 1 carton (200) butts.<br />
    Pay duty on extra booze and butts. It is less than buying in Canada.<br />
    <br />
    I drink bourbon and Margie smokes Vantage.<br />
    <br />
    Leave the USA and come back on a filed flight plan either VFR or IFR.<br />
    Call Canadian Customs tell them you are coming and where you are landing for inspection. Not all Customs offices are open at all times.<br />
    <br />
    Call USA Customs before you fly back into the country.<br />
    <br />
    Most places in PEI take USA cash - as much as they can get their hands on.<br />
    <br />
    Stores are not open on Sunday on PEI. But, tourist stores are open.<br />
    <br />
    DISCLAIMER: This has been a synposis of what is needed. Consult higher authority for a full and official list. However, my experience has been pleasent with Canadian Customs and the general fly-ing environment. They will help-you-not-to-screw-up.<br />
