Default The Great Bonneville Club Air Tour!

This just might be my best idea yet

Myself and another pilot at the flight academy need to do some time building in order to get our commercial licenses. This basically means we need to take a few trips in order to rack up some flight hours. We are not limited to any certain destinations. Which means it is time for the one and only Bonneville Club Air Tour.

I basically need to know who would be willing to put us up for a night or two and feed us a meal. I think it would kick some major *** to visit a series of destinations all over the country and see as many BC members as possible. Any place within the conterminous US is fair game!. In all seriousness, I have no limit to where I can fly. I just need more hours in an airplane before I can get my commercial rating, and I might as well have some fun while I'm doing it! And there is also a possibility that EchoSSEi might be able to join us on some of our flights.

Please let me know if you think this would be a cool idea. Also, start posting if you would be willing to host myself and another pilot for a night or two. I think this has the potential to be an awesome series of photos and BC memories. Looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks!

I could proly talk to the rents if you wanna stop by for a night... we arent far (20 mins) from Lunken Airport (the smaller airport in Cincinnati, OH so you can avoid CVG)... Let me know if you wanna stop by...

Yea but being as im at home and only 20 there wouldnt be much of a party... which is proly good if you are flying the next day!

there is an airport about 3 minutes from campus( Rochester Institute of Technology) that you could fly into. You are more than welcome to stay here for a night or two. Hell, you can even use the bonne to cruise around town if you feel like it.

Very cool!

I never mentioned a time frame on this.... I'm not sure if we'll be doing many individual trips, or flying from one place to another on a long route. It should be a damn good time, though! We'll probably get started on some flights coming up in November, and I think it would be EXCELLENT if we went all the way to the East Coast. I think we would have to arrange a meeting of multiple BC members at once if that were the case
