As you have probably noticed, the weather forecast looks mostly good for getting down to First Flight Airport and back this weekend!
So far, only one detail has changed- the stop-over airport for lunch and fuel on the way down there is now KWWD. This airport has a restaurant on the field, avgas, as well as a prominent aviation museum should you want to take a look at some impressive Naval Aircraft.
At ECG, the airport is set to receive us between 5pm and 7pm on Saturday, and will be holding line services over for us. In addition, they will be mowing a section of grass for anyone that plans to camp out at the airport. I have verified that THEY HAVE A SHOWER IN THE TERMINAL that they will let us use! So if you're camping out, you don't have to miss a shower. Bring your own towel and toiletries.
If you plan on camping out, or have alternate plans, I suggest you post them in the Comments of the Event page on the PPA website so you can link up with other pilots doing the same thing. The Event page has been updated with links to KWWD and the Aviation Museum on the field.
For a great forecast website, there are a few useful links at the bottom of this email. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather!
