    I'm in. Plane is reserved. I'm also IR, so it's gotta be really crummy weather for me to bail.

    I'm also thinking about doing the EAA 690 breakfast at LZU that morning too.

    In based on weather, and yes, @Lance F , I need to get with you after the craziness of the holidays subside. I'm damned tired of scrubbing just because I can't bust through a low layer.

    I doubt I'll be able to rent a plane that weekend. Anyone planning to go and leaving from Atlanta have an open seat? If not and I have the time I might drive up.

    I am going. The plane is based at RYY, but I'm thinking about doing the EAA 690 breakfast at LZU before going to GMU.

    If I can find someone to sign off on a Tailbeacon install, I am in.

    I seem to have selected a terrible time to buy a plane.

    That should be easy. I just bought a tailbeacon to have temporarily until I can get in to the avionics shop for a GNX375

    Doggone it.. I thought the kids' basketball didn't start until the NEXT weekend, but they actually start Jan 4. We have games at 10am and 2pm. Looks like I'll miss out on this one as well.

    I might be able to go if anyone has an empty seat in the Raleigh / Apex / Louisburg / Sanford area and wouldn't mind me tagging along. I live in Raleigh. Would be happy to share expenses.

    That's class D airspace (i.e. no ADS-B required). Right?

    Somehow, I'm thinking the transponder in the box in the basement will not be installed by then.

    Yeah, ADSB won’t be required to fly into Class D airspace or non-towered airports, as long as they aren’t within a 30nm Mode C ring.

    GMU is under Class C space though. You will need to stay out of that, but that shouldn't be too hard. Just be aware of it.

    Where are you flying out of in Atlanta? Most of them are inside the ATL Mode C ring. LZU is not in it, but too close for comfort.

    You can fly under the shelf of Class C, but you can’t fly over the lateral limits of Class C below 10,000 ft.
