    Looking for a Southern New Hampshire pilot group that might organize group flyin's for lunch etc.

    I recently moved back to NH after 38 years in other parts of the US.

    I'm up for that, check out Fitchburg Pilots Association too. While not Southern NH, it's close.

    If you are on Facebook or IG, there is a group called New England Aviation Association. They have fly in's periodically.

    Not sure of any groups that are outside of social media.

    What about right here? A few pilots here have expressed interest. I am watching this thread so when we get something going I will know about it. So if we can put something together here, that would be great! WX is getting warmer and I am looking forward to some hundred dollar hamburgers!

    I'll be all in, assuming I am not working! I am sure I can get a few other non POA people to go too

    Ok, well my cherokee is in the middle of a major avionics upgrade scheduled to be ready around the middle of March. KEEN, KEWB or KBID all have good eats. Many more on my list but those are easy.

    The restaurant at EEN is/has shut down, sadly. Hopefully someone else opens something in their place.

    BAF has a very good Japanese/Asian restaurant, which is a nice change of pace from the normal airport diner fare.

    I would love to go to Basin Harbor for lunch this summer, not sure how they would feel about a fly-in to their place, but it might be worth while asking.

    NO! EEN is gone? That is a huge bummer. Just checked and the last day is 3/14. I loved that place. Covid got a bunch and now this lease thing. Hopefully SFM will survive. Also BAF is a definite this summer!

    I believe it is closed for a while. Warmer temperatures last week had water on top of the ice. Plus the ice is thinning. A cold snap this week, but I don't think it will be enough to reopen the ice runway. Very short season this year as the ice was late to form.

    Don't forget 7B3 and 1B2 for good food and nice views. KCQX Chatham has plenty of restaurants close by. KPVC Provincetown is a short bike ride or a cheap bus ride into town. KSFM Sanford has a decent breakfast, but 7B3 is better.

    I think we should do a monthly breakfast or lunch meetup in this area.

    This past year has been tough on airport restaurant. Unfortunately Soks at BAF is permanently closed. The Flight Deck at EEN just closed this weekend for good. Town assuredly has other plans, hopefully we'll see. Don't forget 63B or AUG. Basin Harbor can hold quite a few planes and the Red Mill would enjoy the business.
