Nothing for nearly 6 weeks..... Grounded because of lockdown

May be able to fly after 8 March for "essential maintenance flight only"

No flying here until late March.

Default Got out the snowblower

Cleaned off the 50m or so of ramp up to the taxi way and flew over to Limon for some touch and goes. Nothing very exciting, but it was nice to get out!

Blue skies

We had to chip away at the ice entombing the hangar doors but finally liberated the big bird and flew up the Allegheny River, a local treasure. The boys made a fun little video with footage from the flight......Ice Flight.

Default Our group of 4 planes flew to Eloy this week

Eloy Municipal E60 is one of the busiest skydiving centers in the world. A short 30 minute flight south of Phoenix allows skydiving entertainment while having breakfast.
