Northern Ca. Fly In Idea

Recommended Posts

My team and I are thinking about sponsoring a Fly In here in Lakeport, CA.  We are thinking about having a few static displays to play with to include Garmin products, Avidyne products, Aspen, Artex, Speed Mod items, etc.  Would anyone be interested in attending and if so, what would you like to see?  We are wanting to show everyone what is out there and available and to give everyone an opportunity to play with the new toys here on the ground also.  What are your thoughts?

I’ll be there. Anything you want to display and discuss would be great.

If I can work it into my schedule to make it an overnight stay somewhere I'll fly up for it. As with Bennett, I'm up for whatever you have on display.

Here’s what I’ve been thinking about in my plane that I would like more info on:

Dual G5’s vs Aspen PFD, STEC 30 upgrade options, Garmin 345 with Flight stream (how awesome is it?), Garmin 650 vs Avidyne 540

Thanks for doing this, Greg!  If I lived 5 states closer I'd be there!

If it can be late May or in June I could be there and I would like to see Avidynes active traffic systems. What it takes to install and weight would be great.

Just a bit off topic. But has Little River any facilities for rental cars, or Uber Service? Years ago I regularly flew up to Little River to spend time in Mendocino and Fort Bragg, but when Coastal FBO left there were no rental cars available. The old Mendocino Stage went out of business, and the gentleman who ran the fuel business, and who lent out a few old cars, also left. I had cabs come down from Fort Bragg to pick me up (and bring me back) at outrageous cost, but even they stopped doing so. The Little River Inn used to pick you up at the airport if you were staying there, but they are not in downtown Mendocino. I really like the 5280’ runway, but without transportation, I gave up going there.

@Bennett There is a good team of GA friendly people at KLLR.  Look up Galore Aviation (http://air-galore.com/).  They have a small fleet of rental cars, and bicycles and are overall helpful GA people.  Call in advance and make your arrangements.  KLLR can fog over on short notice.  If so, you can pre-arrange an alternate airport, like Boonville, which is what we did.

That’s great news. I am familiar with the fog potential at Little River, and I have landed a number of times in Boonville - always walked to town.

I was there about 4 months ago. Couldn't get a signal on my cellphone (T-mobile) to try and get Uber, so rented a beat up car at Air Galore and drove into Mendocino for the day.

The last time I was there I couldn’t get a cell signal on AT&T. But, I am glad that Air Galore rents cars - any car is better than waking to Mendocino.

I've always thought it curious that courtesy cars are  less common in California than other states. I've driven a lot of retired Crown Vic  police cars at airports around the country.

Ok, so, we are thinking sometime in July or August for the Fly-In here in Lakeport.  We are looking to be there in Paso Robles and I may be speaking at lunchtime on ADS-B Solutions.  Let me know what dates work for everyone for the Fly-In!!!!
