Happy New Year Everyone,
We know that we have not kept you updated with our posts but things are quickly going to change.
On the 27th of January, Geronimo Experimental Aircraft is hosting a Fly-In!
Geronimo Experimental is home to the largest experimental/amateur built center in the Southwest US. Seeing the facility is worth the time and 100LL burned during the flight. Geronimo Experimental was the organizer for the US Flight Expo in May 2017 at KAVQ. If you fancy a Lightning Kit or want to explore rapid build, reach out to Greg to discuss.
For the adventuresome campers, you can fly in Friday afternoon and hang out for the barbecue scheduled at 6:00pm. There is no lighting for the strip, so plan to land before sunset!
Highlights include an opportunity for training with HL Cooper, www.azsportflying.com ((520) 682-7504) for ultra-light and light sport transition or bi-annual.
Geronimo is located~ 32.38 deg N/11.37 degW @ 2165 AGL. The build center dirt strip is 2800 feet and a width of ~75 feet.
The build center area will accommodate 20 aircraft. Please contact Greg Hobbs on e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-405-6868. Please RSVP
for flying into Geronimo to affirm a parking space. Please identify your name, phone number, approximate arrival time and the type of aircraft.
For those of you that would like to attend, but not land onto a dirt strip, we will arrange transportation from/to the Marana Regional Airport.
Greg and Crystal Hobbs will host a lunch at the build center at noon. Donations will be accepted.
For those of you driving in the address is 18750 W. Avra Valley Road, Marana, Arizona 85653 (Tucson Area). The access to the parking area is via the Gasline Track just beyond the gate to the build center complex off Avra Valley Road.

Greg will make space available for any Chapters who would like to host a meeting on Saturday.
We look forward to seeing you there.
