Default Best day ever



Al had never ridden in a small plane. What could be a better experience than to fly in a new RV14A to the final "Old Farts" fly in at Venice, Florida. Perfect weather, and attendance of 50 plus varied aircraft and great food at Sharky's on the beach. He couldn't stop saying over and over what a thrill the experience was. Al still has the grin on his face today. Oh, by the way, he didn't need the T.P.

Looks like fun! How does one learn about the old farts agenda? I probably qualify and would like to join some of these outings I read about.

How does a Tampa based semi-old fart get an invite to these flying shindigs?
