    Ok, @Ryanb has been wanting to do this for a while, @eman1200 has been wanting to do this for a while, so here it is.

    -KDKX in Knoxville TN

    -We'll most likely have to uber it to Calhoun's on the River (3.5 miles away)

    -Since we got mother's day and memorial day in May, let's set the fly in date to Saturday June 2nd.

    Here's the list of peeps that have expressed interest in the past (or who have actually made fly ins) but as usual I'm sure I missed someone:

    @RDUPilot

    Wx permitting, I'm in.

    I'm pretty sure @Cluemeister would be interested since it's in his backyard.

    A couple of quick photo's for reference. 3.4 miles from Airport to Calhoun's. As we have discussed, the transportation to and from the restaurant may be the biggest challenge, but we'll make it work.

    I might need to juggle my schedule a bit but if the weather cooperates, I should be a yes.

    Dunno. The next weekend I will be flying to Kentucky again, and the weekend previous I will most likely be flying elsewhere so it will depend on how much I want to spend that billing cycle.

    I'm not sure I have enough fuel to make it. 11 nm @ 6gph is pushing the limits of my aircraft.

    Did 1.2 of checkride prep yesterday. If no mx or wx problems I should definitely be finished with my PPL by then. Planning on being there!

    Calhoun's is a great choice. And if you've never flown into DKX, it's a great little island airport, with an approach right over the city.

    Anyone flying from the lower part of Georgia? I could drive a couple hours and meet at a airport & share flight costs with someone but renting the local flight school's plane is too expensive for this soon to be college student's wallet atm.

    Be careful @eman1200 ! He said he’s a “soon to be college student”. “She looked 18” isn’t a valid legal defense. :)

    Hell, what you call cougars, some of us probably call hot young ones.

    Wow you South Easterners are impressive. The South West guys don't ever meet up.

    That's okay though...I consider myself to be a one man wolf pack.
