    once again, trying to organize a southeast PoA flyin.

    The date: Saturday September 23rd, as suggested by @frank.durham


    The options:

    The Pik-N-Pig @ BQ1 (no landing fee)

    small strip in the middle of absofarkinlutely nowheresville. delicious food on the field, outdoor seating, fun place. bring the kids, they have these bean bag things you try to toss into a hole and also a cow pasture they call a driving range.


    The Runway Cafe @KGMU (no landing fee)
    taxi right up to the restaurant for a tasty burger. outdoor seating, huge aviation themed playground for lil kids. The Monkey has eaten here, so it's kind of a big deal.



    Molly Darcy's at N. Myrtle Beach KCRE (typically $12, waived with fuel)

    1.5 miles from KCRE, right smack on the beach. outdoor seating and an incredible view of a shtload of water. CRE is an easy in N out..........go ahead, I made that one easy for you. fly in, eat lunch, walk on the beach, go home.


    been gathering a list of somewhat local peeps. I'm sure I missed people, pass on the invite to whoever.

    I am no longer open to AVL at this time.. Landing fee $40 and parking fee: $12. Parking fee waived if you buy 10 gallons of gas @ $7/G. uhhh no

    CRE - Molly Darcy's

    If anyone has any other suggestions. Please list them.

    I'm a "lurker," and not a pilot, but my son is. I'm also finishing my Aviation Management degree, and just started on my Avionics degree. If you'll take a ground guy, and his aeronautical chaffuer, we'd love to join you at BQ1.

    I probably can't make that date, but I'd opt for the Pig or Sierra Nevada if I end up being able to go

    I'm a GA boy stuck in the midwest with a twin so you can add me to your list. Unfortunately I can't make the Sept date but I like the amount of notice you gave. Hopefully the next one you put together I can swing down! I vote AVL or CRE purely due to runway length :)

    Would it be difficult to land a twin at BQ1? Probably.

    I prefer 3000+ primarily because I don't ever practice or go into short fields. The biggest issue with short runways is on departure. There wouldn't be much for accelerate stop. Basically it would be more v1 and you're committed to flying. Wouldn't be bad if it's relatively flat around the airport without tall trees at the end...didn't look that close down there yet. @Ted DuPuis use to operate in and out of short rwy's in his 310. Maybe he can chime in with his minimum acceptable during his prime?

    Ah come on now. Just shut down one engine. Singles can land there easily. Do I have to provide all the answers?

    I would fly into Southern Pines (KSOP) and get one of you brothers to pick you up. And if staying over, much nicer place to hang out (bring your golf clubs)

    The restaurant on the field at Greenville, SC downtown airport KGMU is good, long runway, no fees, restaurant gives a 10% discount to those who fly in.

    If we get enough POAers interested in GMU because its a little more centrally located, thats cool. But the lead destinations are CRE and BQ1.

    Back in my heyday I landed the 310 at 1900x25. That really gives you no to for error or problems, but it was a calculated risk.

    Reality is that most PoA fly-in planes are piston singles, so while considering runway lengths for twins is nice, I don't think it's a requirement. Besides, pretty sure eman would up and die if I showed up at his fly-in.

    There was an Apache based there for a while and the owner of the field regularly flew his Twin Commander out of it. That was even before the trees were cleared on the west end. Heck there are Cessna 421's that fly into my one way only 2800' strip!
