Re: [aviation-80] TBFlying Club plane ? Thanks Dave for the find/lead...

I fly my 150 from VDF (VaVandenberg  I actually own a residential lot at X39 (Tamp North)...it even has a concrete pad on it since it used to be part of the tie down area there.  I'd like to move my plane,  but until I do build my hangar-home, there are a lot of good arguments for keeping it at VDF.  With all the extra concrete there are fewer bugs and creatures, I have a good A & P there (Howard at Reliable Aviation).  I tie down on the ramp next to the Sheriff's Office Hangar where I know people who "keep an eye on things", and the tie down is super cheap ($25 per month).  Fuel is about the same once I factor in the discount I get for leasing the tie down at VDF (outrageous either way).   Both VDF and X39 are 45 minutes from my house in Clearwater (a downside for both locations).   So there you have it....i'I'mtill looking for reasons to justify moving to X39...simply because it would be cool to have my plane on my lot.

I may take you up on the sasafetyilot thing.  But It's been about a year since I had any instruction, and all told I have about 25 hours of IFR time logged towards my rating.  So for starters I'll have to get a lot of refresher training to get where I was.  To top it off, I'll have to re-take the written.  Got a 92 the last time around, but that expired.  I still have the King DVDs.  I'd be happy to share viewings with the club by the way.

The[masked] Club is all over the Country (the head guy is in California).   They have a web site at:  http://www.cessna...­
It is a very active group and we have an annual fly-in in Clinton, Iowa every July.  This will be my first year to fly my 150 there...very excited.  There are also regional gatherings.  Around Florida there are members in Miami, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, EuEustisand of course me here in the Bay area.  The forums are the best for getting information...many of the members are A&Ps and instructors, and even airline pilots...a real treasure and a great "family".

The down side is the geography.  I see the group in Clinton of course, but beyond the constant online communication, I can only count a couple of events where I can meet up with members in person.  That is the reason I sought a local group that I might be able to meet up with from time-to-time.
