The whole area is dotted with small grass strips and a RC field.
I had a blast flying around there!

We were at about 2400 ft AGL, just under the broken cloud cover, you could see the haze just under the clouds and you could really feel a big drop in temperature.
We were welcomed at Peach State airport, had some good burgers and conversation, I told the resturant owner about the fly in in July, and he said we are all welcome to come on over and eat at Barnstormers.
good friendly people and friendly skies, Greg is not kidding about the airports, here is a list of airports within 20 miles:

That's a lot of airfields. It sounds like you shouldn't have to worry too much about landing spots for emergency landings, Just look down and there's a strip.
05-23-2005, 03:17 PM
Yeah, but who has gas for that cross country? :D
05-23-2005, 04:24 PM

05-23-2005, 05:44 PM
Let me know when the next get to together is. If we have good weather I will fly over in the 4. Can't fly the speeds you guys will fly, but would like to go anyway.
05-23-2005, 07:25 PM
ya Ron bring that thing I wanna do some more spins in the RV :D
05-24-2005, 03:03 AM
Geeze man you guys are gonna make me wear out my kitchen pass before the fly in! :)
Just kidding, Mary loves me and just wants me to be happy having fun, well that might be a stretch.
Hopefully Phil's gyro will be flying here in a week or so, I had to order a few parts and they should be in this week.
