Oshkosh 2017
« on: Jun 05, 2017 »
Hi Guys:
Oshkosh 2017 is only 48 days away, and no one is talking about it yet.  So, I'll get the ball rolling.  As usual, I'm planning to be there all week.  I'll have N99FK there, hopefully on the flight line in front of the Homebuilder's HQ in the Auto Engines row.  I'll be camping somewhere in Camp Scholler.  The Sonerai Builders Forum is scheduled for Monday, July 24, at 1:00 PM in Workshop Classroom C.  I'm also doing my Demystifying Weight and Balance forum on Friday, July 28, at 8:30 AM in Workshop Classroom C.  I'd like to propose that we hold our annual lunch on Wednesday, July 26, at noon at the Aces Cafe next to the Homebuilder's Hangar.  So, are you coming? Are you planning to bring your Sonerai?

I'll take the lead again on the lunch at Aces CafĂ©.  Okay, save the date Wed. July 26th.  Only change I would suggest is to make it be at 1130 hrs. so we can all get tables together before the lunch rush.

I'll update everybody with details as it gets closer.

I'm planning to be there all week as well, at this point not planning on bringing the Sonerai.   I will be camping in Scholler   25th & Elm like usual.

I'll be there Friday and Saturday sans SII. If anyone is staying around that long I'd love to put some faces to names.

I'm not sure if I'll make it this year.  I've been out of state most of the spring helping my sister with health issues.  I should know more by the end of the month.  But, I was able to finish forming my wing ribs!

How do I make sure they park me with the other Sonerai's?  I've also flown in with a Piper and camped in either the Nor't 40 or Vintage.

It all depends on when you get there, and how full the flight line is.  The Homebuilt parking crew tries to park the different types together, but sometimes it's not possible.  As per the notam, make a sign that you can hold up when you taxi in, so they know where you want to go.

I'm heading up that way on the 24th and 25th hope to meet other owners! I'm currently working on my Sonerai II with hopes to have it flying next summer.  I'm an A&P/Avionics/Pilot.  Can't wait to get my plane up in the air where it belongs! Me and my son just put the engine on but I'm going to take it off to install a electric system and starter I ordered from GP. Hope to see you all there!

Looks like I'll be able to make it to Oshkosh after all.  Looking forward to it!  After being there the last two years, I hated the thought of missing it.
