Passengers: The following pilots are offering spots in their aircraft for others to participate in the fly out. Please only sign up if you are confident you will be able to attend the fly out. Last minute cancellations leave the pilots in a tough spot, as some may be renting aircraft and counting on a certain number of passengers to help offset their costs.

Pilot Jason Fine:
2 seats available. Jason is flying a 1978 Grumman AA-5B Tiger. He is instrument rated and current, and has two seats available for the fly-out, one limited to 250 lbs and one at 200 lbs (the fourth seat will remain unoccupied). His cost to operate this aircraft is $90 per hobbs hour, so for the ~2 hrs of flying on this fly-out he is asking each passenger to chip in $50 towards the cost of the flight.

Pilot Chris Berg: Chris is flying a 1975 Cessna 177B Cardinal. He is instrument rated and current, and has two seats available for the fly-out (the 4th seat may be occupied by a child depending on weight). His cost to operate this aircraft is $60 per hour, so for the ~2 hrs of flying on this fly-out he is asking each passenger to chip in $40 towards the cost of the flight.

Pilot Bill Rogers: 0 seats available. Bill is flying a 2007 Van’s RV-7 that he built. He is a current instrument rated commercial pilot and CFI(I). All seats are currently full for this fly-out.

As you know, operating an aircraft is expensive, and the fly out provides a great way to share the cost of the flight among several people. In compliance with FAA regulations, each pilot is only allowed to ask for up to a pro-rata share of their costs for the flight. Passengers please come prepared to settle up with your pilot at the completion of the flight, so your pilot isn't stuck chasing people down for their share of the flight costs. Passengers should be aware that weather or unscheduled maintenance events can occur at any time, so please understand that there is always a small chance that your flight could be delayed, cancelled, or diverted. It's all part of the adventure!
