Announcing the '05 CSA Spring Fly-In


Recommended Posts

Please make plans now to attend the CSA Spring Fly-In on the weekend of May 21-22, 2005, at the Suffolk Executive Airport (KSFQ), Suffolk, Virginia.

 

Click here for more information.

 

Don't let the "Executive" name scare you. Located 3.5 miles south of downtown Suffolk on Route 13, KSFQ is a rural, pilot-friendly airport with no controlled airspace or towered communications. Two asphalt runways (5,000 and 4,500 feet). EZ-in, EZ-out! Plenty of hard-surfaced parking on the transient lines in front of the terminal. Self-Serve fuel 24 hours a day. The Throttle Back Cafe is in the terminal building and serves breakfast and lunch.

 

Although the fly-in is being held in conjunction with the Suffolk Airport Annual Fly-In, we won't have no stickin' schedule. Early arrivals Friday night. Main fly-in activities are on Saturday. Party at Steve and Traci's house Saturday night. We'll figure some way of getting you there and back.

 

Camping is allowed on the field.

 

Come marvel at Steve's paint job on his Long-EZ. Plenty of sanding blocks available for helping Wayne to fill and sand his Cozy! :-)

Just a reminder that we're two weeks away from the CSA Spring Fly-In, the weekend of May 21-22, in Suffolk, VA. (Airport-> KSFQ). Friday arrivals are more than welcome.

 

Here's the link to the fly-in website for logistics, directions, and things to do/see.

Okay, okay....It's TRUE

 

Yes, caviar and 5-star hors d'oeuvres were served by a professional chef at Saturday night's party.

Yes, nobody had to camp because there were enough beds, couches, and floor space for everyone.

Yes, we FINALLY had good weather. Third time's the charm!

Yes, 11 canards and a host of builders/pre-builders shared a good time.

Yes, everyone oggled over the paint job on Steve's about-ready-to-fly Long-EZ.

Yes, everyone poked and prodded over my Cozy, no doubt wondering why it's not flying yet.

Yes, we totally ignored other things happening with the airport's side of the airshow, instead concentrating on what we ALWAYS do -- pulling off cowls and discussion cooling techniques.

Yes, a few pilots ventured off to First Flight Airport (Kittyhawk) to pay homage to Orville and Wilbur Wright.

 

Yes, we will be posting links to picture albums soon!

 

On behalf of Steve, Traci, and the CSA (Terry Schubert), thanx to everyone who attended the fly-in. I'm sure we'll try again next year, except we're thinking of a name change to the "High-Brow Fly-In." We might also hold the Suffolk 100 Air Race next year.

 

Thanx again!
