Some event details:
Arrival will be Wednesday September 13th and our hospitality area will be the hotel rooftop venue overlooking the airport. Limited parking will be available on the hotel tarmac – reserve a tiedown when you make reservations. You will need to call the hotel to reserve parking. Cost is $25 per night. Otherwise parking will be in the North Forty grass next to the hotel by the tarmac. Grass parking is free, and we will have the BAC Canopy set up with water and soft drinks available at the North Forty. BRING TIEDOWNS wherever you park!!! The hotel tarmac has a steel cable the runs along the tiedown area and you will need to tie to the cable. Be aware the cable anchors are designed for six aircraft and they may park up to nine aircraft, so there may be some slack in the cable!
Just a reminder – the cutoff date to book with your discounted hotel rate is Monday 8/14/23! You can also make a reservation by calling the front desk and reference the
Beech Aero Club Conference at 920-966-1300.
We have 10 Redbird flight training devices reserved for Thursday. Sessions will run about an hour. There are about 20 ‘canned’ scenarios to choose from, or you can ‘free flight’. Instructors will be there to run the simulators. If you are a CFI and want to instruct, let me know. We also plan to tour Basler Turbo Conversions on Thursday. Tour group size is a maximum of 20 and run a couple of hours, so some will take the tour first and some will have a simulator session first. We are working on other events for our partners to do while we do ‘pilot stuff’, though partners are welcome to tour or do a simulator session.
The Banquet will be held on Thursday evening at Fergus Plaza in the EAA museum. A plated dinner will be provided by the Roxy and you will have two or three entrees to choose from.
