Mooney Caravan 2017 - Who's going?

Recommended Posts

Seth    533

I have arrived at Oshkosh!!  Wednesday morning early.  I'll swing by the caravan tent and will attend the Mooney International event today.

Aircraft is at Bassler and I'm camping with some buddies in North 40 (the pirate flags).

My flights to/from KOSH.  2975 miles, 23.6 hours.  Great time flying the Caravan, seeing old friends and making new ones.  First time tent camping at KOSH.  Brenda even stayed in the tent 3 nights after her last minute "cabin" reservation was full of D-Con bait. ( She doesn't like mice more than she doesn't like tent camping)

We're back home in NC after a great week at KOSH. Anxious to view the Caravan arrival, it sure looked good from element Papa (next to last). The MAG wing was extremely well represented.

Good luck finding the time. :) There was a North, Central, and West camera streaming on YouTube. Not sure about archives. I'm on my phone so can't search too well.

If EAA opted to save the archives from their cameras on youtube they may pop up otherwise just have to rely on youtubers to upload their videos when they get back.

I'm sure it's not on anyone's mind now that Oshkosh is over but does anyone know of any formation training coming up near Washington, Oregon, or Northern California? I would really like the training. I missed the Bo training in Bremerton this year.

I didn't get the opportunity to fly with the Caravan so hopefully next year.  Took some poor video, though, of some of the arrivals.  Seems more like a Mooney ground drag race.  Wished I had just done one long video.  I was coming from the North 40 so didn't get far enough down to capture the landings a bit closer.  Sorry, no editing:

I put our Quebec Element landing on Youtube at https://youtu.be/urwPuBxCjE4.  My own landing sucked, but we got there safely - although we should have touched down after the purple dot.  Take what you need.

For what it's worth, you all looked great, impressive. The playing of The Ride of the Valkyrie on the p a struck terror in my heart.

I will try.  Putting the file on Youtube makes it much smaller than the original but it is still 13 Mb.  If our e-mail servers restrict attachments to 10 Mb (as many do) then may I recommend https://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/video-converter as the download mechanism for you to use from the Youtube URL shown above?

Wish us luck.

THANK YOU LANCE!! You captured the Caravan Lead element touching down safely past the purple dot and holding speed into a fast taxi to clear the runway. Textbook, if I do say so myself. But, I am a little biased...

Sign up to the email list on the website or just watch it. Besides the fall clinic mentioned in KVIS, there is a great clinic in Feb at Yuma and the NorCal Beech group usually has one in the Sacramento area every April at which we have a solid Mooney contingent.

Safety pilots govern how many newbies can get time, and priority is given to those registered for the Caravan. That said, we have a LOT of active formators in Cali and the NW group is growing.

PM or email me at "my MS handle"_at_gmail and I will get you on our Best Coast Flyers list through which our formators on this coast plan practices.
