Anyone in the southern california area want to do a JC Fly-In?


Well-Known Member
I'm sitting here bored off my assss killing time when I should be working on my final. Anyways, does anyone want to do a JC Fly-in somewhere in the socal region? I would be willing to go as far south as San Diego as far north as Santa Barabara and as far east as Las Vegas. I think it would be pretty cool if we all met up at a place and hung out and talked. Anyone up for it?

I figure over 2000 members, if 1% turn out thats still 20 people. not bad?
I'm game. A little more advanced warning compared to last time would be great tho!
lets start naming suggestions, How about Catalina?

Or something closer.......French Valley? FV because its not to crowded and we wouldnt have to pay an arm and a leg parking and stuff. And theres a restuarant on the field.
Not Catalina because not everyone's checked out there

F70 (French Valley) sounds good! Santa Paula would also be a fun place to meet up.
If ya'll wanted to come east to Laughlin (S/SE of Vegas) or Palm Springs I might manage to fly in ... (Got a Museum at PSP, too)

Which reminds me I gotta get the PHX folks together again ...
I'll be back west (and hopefully, recurrent) in a few weeks if ya'll can wait; Borrego Springs supposedly has a great Sunday breakfast.
I've also heard Borrego Springs has a good Sunday brunch. Also, Aqua Dulche (about 15 miles northeast of Van Nuys) is supposed to have good bar-b-que on the weekends, $1.99 avgas -- and it almost always has clear skies for the VFR pilots.

I'd go to Palm Springs but its always bumpier than helll, and they charge to park! Let's set a date then place.

I suggest the first weekend of July! Anyone second that date?
daaaaaaaaaaamnnnnn(as Chris Tucker would put it in Friday!) what kinda crack you smokin.....four thousand eight hundred forty something posts.
I'll be watching this one.

Need to do my long solo CC for commercial, so if it works out at a good time (I usually fly during the week), I was thinking of heading down that way anyhow. Not that I really know anyone here, but at least somewhere to head to by myself.

LAX is only like 240NM from WVI, so anything a little further south would be cool.

Not that you really know anyone here? Exqueeze me? I've even ridden in your Jeep!

The weekend of July 12th or July 19th look good for me, I vote for the 20th. In fact, let's create a poll:

<input type="radio" name="option" value="2" />weekend of July 12/13

I have a weekend in Big Bear scheduled already for the 19th/20th. I'll be taking either the Archer or 172, so if it's there and then, I'm in. Otherwise, I can't afford the plane.
Sorry about that Matt. Though you were back east for a bit?

I'm not wanting to vote, as any of them are ok for me. Depending if I can get a plane for the weekend (usually go on weekdays since no one else seems to want to rent planes then
) as the weekend flyers usually schedule 2 or 3 weeks in advance a least.

Would be kinda fun though, reason for me to take a slow little plane, a long ways, by myself, and then come right back.

Yup, contract ended yesterday, I'm goin' back to Cali in a week or so after some sightseeing.

And it seems to me you've got your 2-3 weeks notice to book a plane!
