    Will the taking-off and landing be at the airport?   I recalled that there's private field for camping and airstrip, north of LHC airport.

  • Ken

    I think trikes will all be at the main airport. Contact Reb for details

  • Ttabs

  • Rebel

  • Sally Tucker aka Deafladyhawk

    Hello, ya all   Please check out the event for Jan 18-21 at Lake Havasu - flying trike and air ballooning. I know Lake Havasu very well, during this time, it's perfect weather for flying.

  • XC Triker

    We're looking forward to seeing you there Sally.  Thanks Reb and everybody for putting this on!  I was chatting with Reb here, and he says weather should be GREAT that time of year- but sometimes monsoons come through

  • Rebel

    Talked with dessert skies FBO today and they have some hanger space we can put a few trikes in also D2 Aero, so we can secure everyones bird inside.

  • GeoBlaze

    Lisa and I plan to attend.  We'll be flying into Phoenix commercial so will be trikeless... sounds like great fun, look forward to seeing you all there !

  • Ken

  • XC Triker

    Thanks Reb,  I set some alarms, otherwise I might not have made it to the hangar early enough on Sat morning ;)

    George, Sally, Dean, Ken, Henry, everybody .... looking forward to seeing you there!!

  • Sally Tucker aka Deafladyhawk

    Yippee!   I'll follow others going up north or south.   It should be easier to follow the river up north and follow lake to south.   I'm very familiar with the area since I was 5 yrs. old.

  • XC Triker

    The 10 Day (imaginary) Weather forecast is now available for the Havasu event.  Looks imaginarily good so far.

    There was a post recently on how to get aviation weather on your profile page here-- 'bout two days ago

  • Ken

    Here is a preview video that @attawayl took a few years back just to wet your appetite for next weekend

     

  • GeoBlaze

    Great video attawayl !  Thanks for posting this Ken... The last time I was there was when I was a kid and they had just finished constructing the London Bridge.  It's grown a bit since then : )  The video is just fun to watch, the colors and contrast between the water and desert is great.  I can almost feel the warmth (it is really cold up here in Spokane right now) and I love the desert ... I can hardly wait !

  • Ttabs

    OK - I'm in!  I'll see ya'll on Friday afternoon.  This looks to be too good to miss!!!!!  Woo Hooo!

  • XC Triker

    Awesome Tommy!!!!!!!  That is so Great!!!  I'm really feeling I HAVE to fly out there, down deep in my bones.  I want to fly.  The imaginary forecast is looking good.

  • crayonbox

    Too far for me to come, and might take too long also, so I'll be expecting lots of photos and videos please :)

  • Sally Tucker aka Deafladyhawk

    Hi, ya'll

    Unhappy news.   I have no choice.   I had to make a decision not to go to Lake Havasu.

    I felt that I'm not ready to fly myself right now.   I haven't flown for almost 4 weeks now.  

    I talked to one of my friends who had been assisting me with landing practices.  (he sits behind me).   I am able to take off and flying by myself, with someone sitting behind me.   The landings are the ones that I need to work on.   I'm using my friend's wing, NW 17m for practice landings.   Once I'm solo, then I will be using my wing, NW 15m.

    That week, I was planning to go solo before I go to the Lake Havasu.   The last 2 weeks of weather wasn't good to me.   It was -11 degree at the area where I'm flying.   Also there were days with strong winds.  Wind less than 8 mph is better for me when I'm ready to go solo. 

  • Sally Tucker aka Deafladyhawk

    I'll be seeing you one of the days at the trike gathering.   Please take pictures and videos so I can view them.

    This weekend at the Flying J ranch could be good for me to practice landings in 0-8 mph wind.  Hopefully that I'll be going there this Fri and Sat.

  • GeoBlaze

    It would be great to see you there even if your not flying if you can make it.  Lisa and I are coming down trikeless to hang with friends !  Hope you have good winds and gets some great landing training in this weekend.  I know how frustrating the weather and winds can be when your looking for these windows for training.  Look forward to meeting you !

  • XC Triker

    If weather permits, I'll be flying out there and back-- in which case, I'd love to take you guys up.  If not, I'll drive out just to hang out with everyone.  Sally, Rebel (CFI) may be able to fly back seat with you if at Havasu if that works for you and him.  No reason to rush things, it's hard to undo a bad landing, best to take it easy under no pressure and HAVE FUN!!!  We will still have fun even if we don't have a trike there!

  • Ken

    Sorry to hear that Sally - I was looking forward to meeting you after all of this time knowing you only over the internet. Hope you have fun this weekend just the same.
