What’s next for Fun to Fly?

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

My time with the 2010 Fun to Fly Remos GX is winding down. AOPA Summit 2010 in Long Beach, California, will be here before we know it (November 11-13).

The little girl has been on a bit of a break since returning from AirVenture in Oshkosh. But she has a few more appearances before Summit, and if you’re in the area I hope you’ll stop by and see her.

On Sept. 11, Alyssa J. Miller (she of the Road and Runway Rally excitement) will bring 210FN to Wings Field (KLOM)┬áin Philadelphia, for the Angel Flight East Wings ‘n’ Wheels Fly-In. This is your chance to ask Alyssa how a smart car handles on a race track, among other things.

Next stop is the Midwest LSA Show in Mount Vernon, Ill., Sept. 23-25. I’m bringing 210FN to Mount Vernon for this one. Look for us next to SeaRey directly next to the Aviators Hotline Exhibitor Hall. This should be a great show if the weather cooperates (and isn’t that the case with anything aviation-related?). The LSA manufacturers you’ve been reading about are bringing their airplanes for you to check out. See the exhibitor map on the site for the complete list, but I’ll drop a few names here: American Legend, Gobosh, Piper, Remos, and Vans. Chris Collins, one of the driving forces of the show, is an incredibly enthusiastic participant in the light sport arena, and I’m anxious to see what this show brings to the table.
