2016 LLT FLY IN SUGGESTION
Just tossing this 2016 fly in location out there. What about East coast, Manteo, NC KMQI. Attendees could fly 6 miles over to First Flight Airfield, park your plane, walk over and tour the Wright Brothers Museum. Plenty of great ocean view hotels in area to use as fly in HDQ and other interesting things to do. Just an idea if you've never been and this is on your BUCKET LIST to land at airport where it all began for us in the USA. Just steer clear of hurricane season wink wink.

Julie JetzerI guess I better get on it, right Kelly Poetzman Jeffries? LOL We have our community Fly-in the last weekend of Sept but not sure if we should share or not...what do you ladies think?? I'm also open to the first weekend and third weekend of Sept too. Open to suggestions!! SORRY GUYS...GIRLS ONLY!!! This is a weekend of doing hair, nails and running around in our PJs no fun AT ALL for the MEN... right girls??? Wink, Wink!!!2 days ago   ·  4
Kathleen Doran HegenbergerI brought this up last year.....also, Jekyll Island but I think there is some trepidation about flying over the mtns for some and its a far piece to go for mid landers. There are also a bunch of MOA's and military air space around there that some folks didn't want to deal with. I think it's a great idea myself, but would encourage it during May or Sept when its not so crowded.2 days ago   ·  1
