Default WINGGATE 2016 Discussion

Hello, I wanted to start this thread to give you guys a place to ask questions and exchange event related discussion. I have received several emails and many pilots are excited. Come warm your hands in jet exhaust!

If if you are within a day's drive I hope you will come join us at this laid back, fly it like you stole it, WINGGATE.

It'd be a lot easier to have a discussion with some more information. Dates? Location? Field description? Hotel info?

Got two jets ready to go and working on a turbine power glider to bring along for kicks.

Guys, jet flying won't get any more laid back than this. Bring what you got. Fly fast, fly slow, fly stupid (My favorite category), fly through the bone fire with your foamie after dark. All acceptable and welcomed.

Well I will see Sparky's chili (and eat my fair share) and raise with a couple of pans of Peggy's home made brownies and cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Saturday.

And plenty to eat!
Tenatively planning an after party on a 100' long house boat Saturday night.

We we are sending flyers to airport supporters and local schools in an effort to get youth interested.

If the weather is poor we can fly inside a 100 x 120 hangar with micros.

Please send a pic and brief description of your airplanes if you haven't.
We will be having a DJ and announcer that will need your info so he can tell the spectators all about you.

Default Event Update

Hello as we near the event things just keep getting better. We will have a big coffee pot and a Keurig (if your feeling fancy) setup inside the flight planning building. I'm going to round up some doughnuts. We have invited four local schools in an effort to share our hobby and inspire new aviators.
Feel free to chime in with any concerns and I will do my best to address them.

Lots of prep work! Coffee pots, reserved pit area on the ramp, food, lots of food.
Hangar prep for the Lightspeed presentation to the local school and lots of room for rc jet parking. A second hangar for Friday nights airport sponsored dinner. Both hangars graciously provided by Derrick Schmidt Aviation (DSA).

Hey Jason. I am thinking about swinging over to watch. All I have in the jet fashion is an 90mm EDF T45. I can bring the big Slick for display.
Anyway let me know for sure since I am just over at Grove.
