Do it, Rosie! Why wait? I'll buy your -6 for Tyson (which was his first RV ride), so we'll have a way to get to the islands, you'll have a dusty couch we can sleep on when we visit, and I'm sure you'll be eager to give us your best discount on SCUBA rentals.


Travel safely, friends. Your trip reports always keep us motivated in the shop!

Where are you staying in BVI? I'm there 4/6-13. Might try to check you guys out.

From Rosie: We will be arriving Beef Island on 12 April (midday) and then take the ferry to Virgin Gorda (departing 17 April). This could work! Check back!

Default 2015


Count me in for 2015. I love the Caribbean. Leaving for Cruise tomorrow out of San Juan. One of the stops is Barbados. Love that place.

Had a job offer about 10 years ago there and almost took it. Now I have no ties and make take a look to see if there are any tour operators needing a helicopter pilot.

There is serious money to be made!!!

Everyone have a great time. Can't wait to read the updates. Fly safe. 381NM over water ARGH........

Default Tallahassee


I would stop at 2J9 (Quincy) instead of TLH while in north Florida. It will be much cheaper to buy fuel and no ramp fees, etc. if I can help.

From Rosie: I just use those identfiers to draw a line across the country. I have no plans to stop in either Addison or Tallahassee but now can add 2J9 as a cheap fuel stop. Thank you David

Default Central Texas Airshow, 4 May


You will probably be in a rush to get home and not have the timing right, but the Central Texas Airshow will be ongoing at Temple (TPL) on Sat, 4 May. Falcon Flight will be performing. Drop in before TFR and enjoy the show.

From Rosie: I'll be departing from Fort Pierce (KFPR) on that Saturday morning Falcon and may be a bit late
