Default Next Bahamas Fly-In/Help Out is Oct 25-28

Bahamas Habitat has just released the dates for the next Fly-In/Help-Out weekend. It's October 25th ? 28th 2012.

We'd love to have you join us for a great weekend. You'll get a chance to work on a few homes, tour the new children's home, and see some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet.

We need LOTS more RVs this fall.

Details and more photos are at:

Here's a video I shot of Smokey Ray's RV-X during the last weekend:

Default I'm in!


I'm in! I signed up on the website and made my donation. I've always wanted to fly to the Bahamas and this is a great opportunity to do so and make a difference.

Only catch is I need a seat so if anyone has an extra, I'm pretty good on the radios and navigation. Spent 10 years in the right seat flying S-3Bs in the Navy. Plus I have my pvt so I can hold alt when the a/p goes out.

RV-8 empennage DONE
Wings 99% done

Default Re: need a seat

That's great! It should be no problem at all to get a seat for you. Can you make it to Orlando? We will be departing from KORL. We have also made arrangements in the past to pick people up if somebody has a spare seat from points north and west.

Anyway, welcome aboard. You should be getting emails from BH now that you've signed up. Feel free to ping me (PM or otherwise) if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Could you please let me know when the next mission trip is planned. I'd love to fly my RV10 to the Bahamas for mission work.

Default ??

So help me understand the details. Where do you fly into? What hotel do you need to make a reservation? And confirm arrival and departure dates?

Do not know if we can make it yet, but would like to consider it.
