With the end of the year just around the corner my mind starts to think about the Factory Fly-In
in Trenton! To some of you I may be jumping the gun but I have found that if I plan early, my
plan always seems to work out. I am sure John is about to post dates and information about it soon.
I have just started to look up airfares but have not ruled out driving (1,700 miles each way).
My first fly-in was 2009 as I wanted to just see this little heli and see what all the buzz was
about. I met another guy on the Forum and we ended up making plans on meeting and
splitting the cost of a room in Chiefland. My next on was 2012 after I moved back to the
Mainland and two months later I put down my deposit for "Myrtle" my 285. Unfortunately I
will not be bringing her along on this trip. It will be great to see the old friends I made there
and meet new owners and other folks that are coming to get information and their first glimpse
of this neat machine.
If you haven't been to a factory fly-in, start planning now! There is a wealth of information to be had
and some of the greatest folks that you will ever meet will be happy to answer questions. My thinking
is it will be held March 31st through April 2nd (usually the weekend before Sun n Fun).
Let's start this year off with the anticipation of a fantastic Factory Fly-In. Chime in and tell us if you
are planning on going, how you are getting there, and where you are planning on staying.
This is a perfect way meet like-minded rotor-heads and possibly cut expenses!
Time to get excited!

Funny, that is exactly what I said!
