Title: Planning on getting flying time during the summer.
Post by: byrocat on February 04, 2020, 07:43:51 pm
I've got to book my time off in advance (not yet retired.....) and am wondering which days have people out at the field and available for being an instructor/observer in general.

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for the post about flight instruction in 2020.

Depending upon weather and your availability, the month of May is a good time to start flight instruction. You may also wish to consider RC Gound School which is currently scheduled for Saturday April 18, 2020. FYI... flight instruction at Crosswinds Field usually takes place on weekends, but can be arranged for most days of the week.

Let's go flying at Crosswinds Field.

April 18th..... Four weeks away..... 

In spite of the prognostications of DJT, we could still be under "starters orders" (to use the British racehorse terminology). I'm not going to book anything else for that Saturday just in case.

However, I AM (emphasis) still trying to claim my workshop back after having piled everything from the basement into my workshop as well as putting down a layer of rubber activity squares (4 2x2-foot tiles for $25 and Home Depot, if you don't mind standing in a spaced out line outside of the store). About halfway there but now need to clean out all of the paintcans that have been piling up for years.

Well Bruce, April 18th was going to be our "Tractor Prep Day".  Not a great occasion for flight instruction, or flying in general I'd think.  But staying with the DJT theme: "we'll see what happens...".

Cheers,

Tony
