About

Starting this up a bit early but i thought id put this up for a descuccion of where in the pnw do we want to hold the next fly in. Keep it in mind we cannot please everyone, but this is a good time for suggestions. Also do we want to change the dates as so they dont conflict with osh kosh? Keep in mind that final decisions will be made by the original organizers. T tabbs ,geo balaz, myself and henry imagwa. All suggestions will be based on aera safety for all levels of pilot skills. Acomidations and ease of acess and tfrs and mc weather.
Dont be afraid to make suggestions within the pnw and big thanks to ed evans ,leigh ann evans, and henry imagwa for all the planning and work they did also including lee homestead and community and everyone who attended to make this one of the largest most successful community fly ins in the country. Many friendships were made and piloting skills were demonstrated . Thanks david coy

      Leo Iezzi What about Polson? Is that up for consideration? I would think that if some of our fellow pilots come all the way from back east, they may want more diversity. Shelby is far and costal, Hamilton doesn't have a huge lake. Polson offers both, and more. Just my 2 cents.

      Glade Montgomery Hey White Eagle. It was good meeting you in Sandpoint. Regarding suggested locations, I believe the suggestion was for Shelton, Washington (not Shelby). Our airfield (Sanderson Airport, KSHN) is one of those that was overbuilt for the military during WWII, so it's plenty big. It's very close to town and facilities. It's a gorgeous area to fly with waterways everywhere and mountains within near reach. Also, only 50 miles away is Copalis State Airport, one of (I believe) only two officially recognized on-the-ocean-beach-sand runways in the country. Landing on hard sand right next to high surf is to die for. Also, (so long as you are not endangering persons or property) it's legal to low-fly (you know, wheels maybe a foot or two off the sand) along the beach, which is likewise super cool.
