Aircraft Parking and Fuel
Park in front of the old tower where someone will escort you to the restaurant. Conversations with the two FBO's are in progress to see if a fuel discount can be arranged.
Lunch will be on the airport grounds at the Skyline Café, so no ground transportation will be required for day trippers. Here’s a link to their lunch menu. Members will be responsible for the cost of their own lunches, except that our desserts will be courtesy of the SWBS board.
Please register on the Southwest Bonanza Society web site no later than June 5, 2019 so we may provide the Skyline Café with an idea of how many tables to set up for us.
This is the first time the club is using its new web site to register for an event. To encourage adoption, the door prizes below will be awarded to registered attendees. You must be a member of the Southwest Bonanza Society, and you must be present to win. Each member of an "individual plus companion" membership bundle must register for both to receive a ticket for the door prize drawings.
- Grand prize: Certificate for BPPP Service Clinic, $300.
- Second prize: One free night at the Hangar Hotel, $200 maximum.
- Third prize: Gift basket with a bottle of rosé, rhubarb and plum soy candle, Belgium chocolates, Belgium caramels, and Crabtree & Evelyn gift set.
- Various other items will be awarded; the fly-in hosts are still working on the details.
The cost to visit the aviation museum is normally $6 per person, but that is reduced to $4 per person since we'll have more than 10 people.
