Thread: Virginia Festival of Flight. April 30, May 1. Great Fly in event.

    Virginia Festival of Flight. April 30, May 1. Great Fly in event.

    The Virginia festival of Flight (www.virginiaflyin.org) continues to evolve and grow. This year the event will be the weekend of April 30, May 1, 2011. This will occur at KSFQ in Suffolk VA, a bit west of Norfolk and well out of the class C area. Is anyone interested a showing up, checking out the exhibits, and viewing the planes? BAC can pick up the tab for member's registration and we can compare planes. Alan White suggested this event and I know a few of us usually show up. It is a great time of year to fly! And this event is usually a pretty big regional flyin with seminars and vendors.

    Ed, you just want to fill in another state on your map! And it is only 32 miles to the nearest airport (ECG) in NC!

    We can all make a short flight to Wright Bro.s museum at First Flight Airport for Pizza and Ed's NC sticker!

    I contacted the flyin and they will attempt to park us together if we can get a head count and let them know about how many to expect. They will let us hang our banner at the dining tent (how big is it?) and use it as a centralized meeting place.

    Sounds like a plan! Hopefully I won't bring Tornados like Sun n Fun. I may get banned from events this year!

    These guys are great to work with and pretty flexible. Thanks to Allan White for making contact. I think the dining tent there is usually a hundred seats or so.
    it is well worth checking the schedule, some years there is a great selection of talks. And this is the only event that I ever attended that had flying lawnmowers.

    They have asked that everyone arriving have a sign made up (a la Sun 'N Fun) that says "Beech Aero Club" so that the linemen will know where to park us. I will arrive early Saturday to coordinate things. I will be camping at the plane. I will bring a grill so if anyone wants to bring something to throw on the grill Saturday evening, they're more than welcome. I think I can get an Easy-Up tent in the plane too so we might can congregate at the planes.

    Wow, sounds like fun, and a quick flight down from Warrenton, VA; unfortunately, the plane is still an ongoing project. The A&P keeps getting other things to work on...maybe next year.
