    Fly in FOK Long Island, NY 11/14/2020 11am ET

    As time marches on, things change.

    About 2 weeks ago Cafe Volo opened at FOK Gabreski airport in West Hampton, LI.

    I checked it out this past weekend and deemed it worthy of BAC attendance.

    FOK is a towered airport with a good deal of jet traffic. Weekends slow down but pay attention.

    The restaurant is in the main terminal and free parking is available right in front. Inside and outside tables are available but the temperature dropping seems to dictate inside. Large windows allow for airplane watching.

    Landing fee is $5 or less for mouse sized aircraft.

    Thanks for sharing. That is a short hop for me from East Hampton, but I have not been in FOK in ages as no need to go there, but now that the Cafe' is open, I might change my mind.

    Cool--thanks for organizing! This fly-in is on my calendar, with Sundowner N23978, based in New Bedford, MA (KEWB). NB: I am VFR only, so weather will need to be suitable for me to attend.

    Not a problem. I may have to shift the date based on weather but I will post any changes here.

    The Northeast Region Director has endorsed this fly-in.
    So, it qualifies for President's Points, maybe some take-home trinkets as incentive for participants.
    And likely the Beech Aero Club will buy lunch and pay landing fees, if any.

    My plan is to be there.

    Added to the calendar. An hour and a half flight from OCMD and a chance to build some flight time. Of course the best part is meeting fellow BAC members
