The folks at the Falmouth Airpark are quite accommodating!

Mitch chimes in here often. He flies a -4 and is building a -12.

If you would like to slide into the illustrious Hangar #5, we could pull the -6 out and do your oil change. We have a used oil furnace so you wouldn't need to worry about disposal.

Default Illustrious Hangar #5

Hgr 5 sounds like a great place to visit regardless of oil change. John can you pencil me in for just such an event.

Has anyone been into Cape Cod (Marston Mills)? It looks like a nice quiet place to park too.

Also, as I look at the map I see a route to try as we head back for home that seems a good idea. Here's what I have in mind.



Basically flying down Long Island right through New York City.

Default Take a left!

Cathy,

Return plan looks good....but you may want to consider the VFR corridor on the Hudson to go through the city....see NY at low altitude!

Also....after NY City....take a left and proceed direct Kitty Hawk

If you opt for a flight down to Kitty Hawk, you're welcome to stop in at 53VG for a rest or snack. Also, Currituck (KONX) usually has good fuel prices and it's just before you get to KFFA.

Addendum: if you still plan to do the oil change during your trip, the hangar at 53VG is large and available. (just finished the condition inspection so it's all setup for the task).

Default Motivation to fly the Hudson corridor

I second the vote for the Hudson corridor. I just flew it about 10 days ago. It was amazing. Circling the Statue of Liberty was the icing on the cake.

I just read your post about the new air strip. What a wonderful place you have. Awesome video, graphics too. I wonder if I can take a quick temporary retirement from work for a month or two.

Up the Hudson looks great. I wonder if I can manage it without bumbling into EWR or LGA airspace? I'll do some research.

Default Hudson Corridor Info

Cathy,

Flying up the corridor is no problem. And you can do it northbound or southbound (or both). Just make sure you take the FAA online course that provides the training for flying the Hudson corridor. You can also print out a form that gives you all of the necessary information and radio calls for the different points.

It is well worth it! Good luck.

Fernando

The FAA's on-line course for the Hudson River VFR corridor is one of the best developed courses I've taken from the FAA. I was completely comfortable flying the route solo from the materials.
