    BAC Fly-In May 18-19 For Rocky Mountain Sport Aircraft Expo

    Time for the North Central Region to have a Fly-In! I am sponsoring a BAC Fly-In to the Front Range Airport (FTG) in Watkins, CO in conjunction with the Colorado Pilots Associationís Rocky Mountain Light Sport Aircraft Expo (http://www.rmlsaexpo.org/index.html) May 18-19. There will be a pancake breakfast on the 18th from 8AM to 11AM for early arrivals and we can do a late lunch both days at the Aviator Grill on the Airport. A schedule of events for the Expo is posted on the website listed above. If anyone is planning on RONing let me know as I am still checking on accommodations. Information for Front Range Airport can be found here: http://www.ftg-airport.com/.

    Thanks Dave for hosting this. I am glad to hear there is interest from other regions. It's spring and time to get all those baby beeches in the air. Let's make this a great fly-in!

    Dave, sounds like a great idea. That weekend is our 35th wedding anniversary and our kids have told us that we cannot leave the state. I would enjoy looking at you super, maybe next time. - Denis.

    This should be a great Fly-In. In addition to being able to see some of the latest Light Sport Aircraft at the Expo we have been able to arrange some additional benefits and activities for BAC members. Here is what we have so far: For those that plan on remaining overnight on Saturday we have a discounted rate at Springhill Suites. To get the discounted rate please use this link for making for making your Hotel reservations: http://cwp.marriott.com/denda/frontrange/. The Colorado Pilots Association is sponsoring a Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, May 18th from 8AM to 11AM, which is free for pilots flying in. The FBO will provide fuel service from their fuel truck at the same price as available from the self-service facility on the airport which is currently $5.39/gal. There is an on-field restaurant as well as several food venders at the Expo for lunch and we are planning on a BAC dinner at a restaurant near the Hotel on Saturday evening. We have arranged for a tour of the FTG tower, which was recently built and is the tallest General Aviation Airport Tower in the US. If there is sufficient interest we might also take a side trip to the Wings Over The Rockies Air and Space Museum (http://www.wingsmuseum.org/) in Denver. As Mike mentioned, I have rented a mini-van for local transportation for our group. If you are planning on coming to the Fly-In please respond on this thread or send me a PM. I have asked the Expo managers to try to park our aircraft together so I would like to give them some idea of how many aircraft to expect.

    The Weather is looking good for this weekend. Spring has finally come to Colorado. I would like to get a head count on the number of folks planning on staying overnight on Saturday. If it is 5 or less I might switch from reserving a mini-van to just a full-size car.
