So Mike, we're trimming this by one day this year versus 2016?

Steve

It's Friday, Saturday and Sunday, just like the ones I've been to. What day was trimmed?

Duly marked.   I'll bid vacation to cover it....

Thanks for the early notice.

I still have your prize from the last summit.  At the rate we're going, you probably won't get it until then.  :D

Last year, we were hoping to have a redbird full motion sim available for Thursday, but that didn't come together, hence the 29th was a day of bench flying for a lot of us.

This year, we will once again have the companion course in the Bamboo theatre, along with new topics and subject matter experts. I am working on the agenda now, and will post a tentative agenda as soon as I have it somewhat firmed up. Next year, this event will be in the capable hands of Seth Meyers and Lee Drumheller. Seth and Lee have a lot of great ideas that will keep the Mooney Summit a "must attend" for all Mooney pilots and owners. We will have the PROTE reduced O chamber in 2018, and will have a 4 day event so that everyone can have the opportunity to learn what their tells are.

Stay tuned, this will be a good one!

For those that receive the March issue of FLYING magazine, on page 70 there is an article about the Bombadier safety standown. The Mooney Summit has a remarkable parallel to this event. This year, at the Mooney Summit V, we are fortunate to have one of the founding SME's of the Bombadier safety standown, Dr. Tony Kern, deliver our keynote address on the psychology makeup of pilots. This has been a requested topic for the last 3 Summits, and finding a true expert has been elusive until Dr. Kern stepped up! His presentation will be a "don't miss" event! Welcome Dr. Kern!

We have 160 registered people and 13 Presidents club members! At the present time, we have to limit registrations to standby status because of physical space limitations, but will add everyone in the order they signed up as cancellations are received. The Summit's agenda is posted at www.mooneysummit.com. Once again, we will have a silent auction and raffle for some fantastic items courtesy of our great sponsors. Thanks to everyone for making this successful beyond my wildest expectations!
