First Fly Out!

We are finally having our first Fly Out…ever!

Destination: Rockland, Maine (KRKD)
Date: June 18 (weather alternate, June 19th)
Purpose: Airplanes, cars and food.
RSVP: Matt –

The Owls Head Transportation Musuem, right on the field of KRKD, has antique airshows and auto shows throughout the summer and has an extensive collection of transporation-related displays. On the weekend of June 18 and 19 they will host the All-American Auto Meet which promises to be fun. Details here: The museum fee is $18 (exhibits & events), free for active or retired milirary. We plan to fly out early in the morning to catch the WWI airshow and fly back in the afternoon.

The plan is to take two or three planes. Sam Lutz and Ethan Winberry are committed to going in a club plane as well as myself in my Mooney.

Both club planes will be blocked out for these dates until a few days before the fly out. If you would like to join, please email me directly ( with plane and seat preference. There are six seats open in the 172 & 182 and one in the Mooney. Flight time there is about 1:10 (in the 172, a bit less in 182 and Mooney). We plan to depart at 8amsharp, weather permitting, as the air shows are in the morning. If fog keeps us grounded, we’ll depart when we can. The museum is open 10a-5p. We’ll grab lunch in Rockland while there and fly back in the afternoon/evening.
