    Sorry I missed it. I've got a new temporary job as chief controller while the military one is deployed and duty called. I was chief controller before I retired and thought I'd never have to do it again but...

    are we doing 6/8? I could make this work, and I could pick up Mtns at GYR.

    I just got a hall pass for Sunday 6/9. Howzabout we all meet up at Sky Rider Cafe at Marana, say 0830 on June 9? @Rgbeard and I can armwrestle over who gets to take @Mtns2Skies along from GYR. Rusty has a nicer airplane, so M2S will probably want to ride with him. :D

    I can be at the Lux-Air FBO parking lot at GYR at 0700.

    (If the 9th is no good for everybody else I could probably make Saturday the 8th work, too.)

    I start training Monday morning at Flight Safety In Tucson. That Sunday might actually be an off day for me. I’d love to meet up with you all.

    Wife said we're good for either Saturday or Sunday. So long as you don't mind flying in a "Chevy Suburban". I'd plan to touch at GYR at 0730:ish. Looks like it's a 35 min flight.

    I plan to go. FYI Two weeks ago the ramp in front of FBO and restaurant was closed for construction so plan to park east of shade hangars. Check NOTAMs

    I met up with @CC268 and his dad this morning and let them know about the meetup. They are interested in going but haven't committed yet.

    Just seeing this thread, don't check in here often. I'm in Tucson. Live at and based at 57AZ. Happy to get together if my schedule allows.

    Our facility is less than a mile off the end of the runway of Luke AFB... There's so much freedom here.

    I talked with Mark W who doesn't post here but has been to several other AZ POA meetups and he plans to attend on Sunday either flying with me or separately in his plane which is based at Falcon Field in Mesa.

    It'll be my wife and I in the "airborne Chevy Suburban", with our two small dogs.

    I called the cafe, and they said they can accomodate.

    I’d love to make it, but I’m 1500nm too far. You kids have fun and behave yourselves...I expect to see several photos!

    P.S. watch out for that Dave guy...

    Yep, depends upon if a guy comes back early from leave but I think he will.

    Yep! I can be at the Goodyear Airport admin building parking lot at 0645 if @Rgbeard and @Mtns2Skies wish to meet up before departure. Look for a gray Audi Q3.

    I'm happy to go with whoever! I like Cessnas too! Turns out I'm closer to Glendale municipal, but it is not at all a problem to go to GYR. Just let me know!

    I'm not sure who I'm going with either :D but I'm thrilled to go with either of you.

    Better keep an eye on that @Rgbeard guy. He may have you convinced to switch over to a low-wing...

    I may be able to give you a lift once I know if the others I have offered a ride to accept. Best I can do right now.

    If you're closest to Glendale, then you're 50/50 between Deer Valley and Goodyear.

    Let me propose something and see if you agree:

    I'll come and pick you up in our SUV, bright and early, from your hotel, and bring you to DVT. We leave for Tucson from there.

    You have to be okay with Right Seat, while wife and two small dogs are in the back.

    On the way back, hitch the ride home in Pilawt's C172. Wife, dogs and I will be headed to San Diego.

    Tucson guys. Who’s up for a beer sometime over the next couple of weeks. I’ve got a good class schedule. Out by 4:00 for ground, and I’ll be done by 1:00 once I get to the sim.

    This will work on one condition. You let me buy food for @Pilawt and @Rgbeard & wife AND let me chip in for gas for both of you. :)
