    AOPA Expo in October

    Greetings from New England,

    Amazingly enough, AOPA is holding their annual EXPO in my neck of the woods. I won't even have to suck up to the airlines for this if the weather turns bad. ('Course, I-91 is a SOB any day of the week, sigh.)

    Now I don't care if you are, or are not a member of AOPA; they put on a heck of a show. And the static display, at Brainerd Field (KHFD) is, well, not walking distance, but they always have some sort of efficient shuttle.

    I am working to arrange some sort of BAC presence (inspired by Bob Schmidt's work at AirVenture). Even if all we get is a rallying point and a chance to sit down for dinner and tell lies (err, elucidate the finer points of flying) we can have a good time.

    And, too, we can expose ourselves to more people. (umm...Memo to me: don't try for fancy language before your second coffee.)

    Let me know if you are coming (via Mouse or high speed Spam can) and let's see what we can put together.

    AOPA Expo in October

    Ya know? You need a life when you are posting replies to your own topic.

    But...though implicit in the location of the airport, I forgot to state that the EXPO is in Hartford CT.

    Hartford is a chunk of urban landscape dotted on the banks of the lovely Connecticut River.

    And it's a real flying oriented area. In the immediate vicinity we have:
    1 Class C (BDL)
    3 Class D (HFD, BAF, CEF)
    and about 6 uncontrolled fields

    Across the river (and please don't land on the closed Rentschler Field) is Pratt & Whitney (the original plant)

    SC
