If you live near Los Angeles, this should be on your calendar.

If you fly in Los Angeles, and you are not a member of PHPA, you should be.

Hope to see the LA guys there, I'll be working the PHPA booth from 1-4 pm.

Goldy-

 

Of course this has to be scheduled on lil' rotrhd's birthday weekend. Maybe you can convince the departing flights going Eastbound to cruise over Monrovia and do a few orbits over the rotrhd palace. That would score all of us some big time points...just not sure with who though.

 

Hey, there's an idea: let's see who can blow out the birthday candles from 1,000' if its a ME, or maybe 500 if it's a single.

 

(BTW, had to update the avitar temporarily & tag team w/Eric Hunt. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. How's the saying go - "Up & down & round & round..." . I'll try to email you later.

 

-WATCH FOR THE PATTERNS, WATCH FOR THE WIRES-

Yep. I got an e-mail.

 

"Due to the ever-changing and unreasonable requirements, established by the City of Santa Monica"

 

 

Suprise suprise, most of you know the City is not very fond of it's airport and wants to shut it down.

....Out in SD, is there anywhere else where there is a similar event nearby?

 

My next option is to go to one of the schools around here. See what being a helicopter pilot is all about. Take out some cash for a discovery flight and make it a great weekend!

 

Couple to watch for is this one, maybe the upcoming aviation event (in June) in Glendale, Ca. the huge airshow/carshow at Los Alamitos every year....thats a must see, and then the American Heroes Airshow which is all helicopters.

 

Doesnt Pendleton or one of the bases down there have an open house each year?

Miramar should be having their air show again in october. I was still stuck on fixed wing when I went -_-

 

I'll look into those events, thanks!

 

 

I forgot the San Carlos Hiller Air Museum show called Vertical Challenge. I know its not real close, but its another great helo show.
