    That is a fun fly-in. The caverns use to own the airport or FBO (still might). Parked on the ramp and was met by a van and dropped off at the caverns. Great service and beautiful destination. I miss those hills!

    Wish I could join the fun, but can't get the mouse out of the hanger without hitting the wings on snow banks.

    You need to get back out to Virginia this year . We have a lot on the hopper. Be careful with that weather up there.

    Always a fun trip over the mountains! I will try to make it.

    I'll try to make it also. Luray is fun to fly into. 4500 msl over the hill and 980 I think on the field. The power dive down the slope is fun but the circling approach is safer!

    I have talked to my CFII about coming down. As long as the weather holds out, I/we am planning on making it down. Hope this goes as planned any advise for flying in. I have never been to this particular airport. Does it have an instrument approach, I will be training while flying to and fro.

    Erick,
    KLUA has an NDB-A VOR/DME-B and a couple RNAV(GPS) approaches. Luray is a quaint little town.

    John, I'll plan to go; I should be home from work.

    Watch the VFR traffic patterns too. For some reason I have never understood they expect your downwind on the side near the mountain, not over the flat valley.

    Hey Paul, there is a tower on the other side in the proximity .That is why they have the pattern on the western side I believe. looks like a nice turn out so far.
