We are holding our first chapter fly-out of the year this coming Saturday, April 29. The participants will gather at 9:00 am at the Gazebo, at KLHM and depart en masse, for a fine brunch at Nancy’s Airport Cafe located at the Willows/Glenn County Airport (KWLW).
For those aircraft not able to carry extra passengers or you just want to meet at Nancy’s, please plan to arrive at Willows at about 10:00 am. As noted below, we are trying to match chapter members who don’t have access to an aircraft a chance to participate also, so we want any pilots who can carry passengers to meet at the KLHM Gazebo at 9 a.m.
Willows is 64 fun-filled air miles northwest of Lincoln.
We are also trying something new for this event. We are using SignUpGenius to see if this will help organize the fly-out. We are asking all who wish to participate to use this link to go to the sign up page, either as a pilot/plane or as a passenger. We’ll try to include as many non-pilot chapter members as possible as passengers…this will depend on how many pilot/planes participate and the ability to accommodate passengers. We are limiting the passenger sign-ups to just ten individuals. Please note that we cannot promise that we will be able to get all the passengers who sign-up on an airplane going to Willows.
This is the first organized chapter fly-out we’ve had post-COVID, so we are putting our toe in the water to determine the interest in this and future fly-outs. (As of right now, we are planning fly-outs for the five-Saturday months this year…that would be April, July, and September.)
Also, a word of warning: we are using the free version of SignUpGenius which is very advertisement-heavy. Verify what you are clicking on as you go through the signup process to ensure you are not actually clicking on an advertisement.
If this process works well, the chapter may spring for a paid, ad-less version of SignUpGenius.
Please email back to the chapter with any questions or concerns.
