    Steve Cote had asked me to put together a rough how to on the fly in
    and what worked and what didn't. The following is what I came up
    with:

    Fly In How To



    1. Decide to have one.

    a. Where to have one

    b. When to have one

    c. That you are going to give up 100 hrs. to make it a success

    2. Talk to the FBO (must have cooperation)

    a. Management (fuel break, tie down fee, parking)

    b. Line Chief (parking area saved or designated)

    c. Maintenance Chief (emergency maintenance)

    3. What are you going to do (5 hrs per day.)

    4. If flying ops with more than 3 aircraft, talk to Airfield Manager.

    a. Airfield Manager

    b. Tower Supervisor

    c. Departure/Approach Control

    d. FAA FDO

    5. Plan the flight like your FAA Evaluation, (all the extras.)

    6. Plan food like a party for your best friends.

    7. Start geting out the word out early, find a hook to draw people
    and planes, families work best, for a better draw.

    8. If a good picture arises, give it out to the groups that helped
    to make it that way. For us - Ground/tower, Approach control,
    WestJet and Steven (spare driver.)



    What went right: - most, WestJet was good to great for us. Ground
    and Tower worked all the problems and keep us out of trouble.
    Ellsworth Approach keep an eye on us over the hills and handled the
    only emergency quickly. The food was ok, the cake was better, and
    the company was the best. Having an extra driver for the group
    helped in moving everyone.



    What could have gone better Mission planning, needed to be more
    of it. Navigation would have been better if the flight plan had
    been distributed before arrivals so the land marks could be
    studied. Pictures for the land marks from a distance and over head
    would have helped. Three ship cells at fifteen minute intervals
    would free up the airport departures and arrivals and would have
    spread out the aircraft (a little safer.)

    I think EAA has a document on how to plan for and put on a fly-in.

    I just tried to find it on their website and so far haven't turned
    it up. Maybe someone else is familiar with it or has a copy.
