Saturday, April 20: Central Georgia Peach Fly In Cameron Field Airport, Ft Valley, Georgia (GA81)(pvt.) (UNICOM 122.9).   On April 20th, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm,  there will be one of those rare fly ins that your wife will want to go to. ( That is if the pilot is the husband! ) Lane Peach Packing plant, ( lanesouthernorchards.com ) sits in a peach orchard and has a great restaurant in the front. Not only do they have the best peach cobbler you have ever tasted but they also have peach ice cream, etc. Lane does pecans too. The restaurant has a great buffet line or you can order your meal. Also there is a gift shop with all kinds of southern delicacies and fun items and you can sit in one of the 40 or 50 big wooden rockers across the front porch while you snack. For those driving, Fort Valley is just west of I-75 from Exit 142. But here is the best part for the pilots, there is a grass strip directly in front of the shop so while you enjoy your dessert you can watch planes come and go directly over you.

I'm Milford Shirley of FlightTime Radio ( flighttimeradio.com ) and we are planning on broadcasting our show there live. For flight planning the strip is called Cameron, it is a north, south runway and the identifier is GA81. The strip is 3,000 feet. Perry airport, ( KPXE ) is about 2 miles directly SE so you should be a little cautious for traffic but this should be a fun little Saturday destination. By the way, the Lane Packing Plant says that for any pilot and spouse they will give you a free dessert or 10% off your meal.
The event is planned for 10 to 4. If anyone is planning on joining us please drop us a note if you can, but it's not necessary -  milford@flighttimeradio.com  See you in Georgia,  Milford

This will be a very relaxed event primarily for pilots, airpark members, and other aviation enthusiasts. We plan to serve a nice meal beginning at noon on a donation basis. We’ll be holding the event at the large hangar located about mid-field of our 3,500 (about 3,000’ usable) grass runway. We plan to have chapter members monitoring the radio on 122.9 to assist you with in-flight advisories and with aircraft parking. We’re located near the town of Gilbert, SC just off Interstate I-20 near mile marker #44. For further details, see below:

Friday - Sunday, October 18-20: Wings of Freedom Tour Three Rare World War II Planes are scheduled to be at the Greenville Downtown Airport, Greenville, SC 29607. (KGMU)   On Friday, October 18th, the Consolidated B-24 Liberator “Witchcraft” WWII Heavy Bomber and P-51 Mustang Fighter, which are the sole remaining examples of their type flying in the World, will arrive at the Greenville Downtown Airport, along with the vintage Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress ”Nine O Nine."  These planes, which are part of the “Wings of Freedom Tour”, will depart on Sunday, October 20th. "These historic planes are quite rare and we are lucky that they have chosen to come to Greenville,” stated Tim Bishop, Director of Museum Development for the Upcountry History Museum.  "During WWII, Greenville Army Airbase (now SCTAC)  was a training center for B-24 and B-25 aircraft and it will be an exciting opportunity to see a B-24 flying over Greenville again,” added Bishop.
Access to all three aircraft that includes walk through tours are just $12 for adults, and $6 for children 12 and under.  WWII Veterans get into the ground tours at no charge.  No reservations are needed and the walk through tour times are: 
Friday, 10/18/2013       2 pm - 4:30 pm

Flight Experiences take place before and after walk through tours.  Reservations are required.  Call 978-562-9182 to arrange your flight.
Flight Experience “donations” are $425 per person aboard the B-17 or B-24, and $2,200 for 30 minutes of P-51 dual control flight training (yes, you get "stick" time in the P-51).  The Collings Foundatoion is a 501(c)3 so the majority of your flight experience is a tax-deductible contribution.
The planes will be next to the new aviation themed community public park at GMU, by the Runway Cafe's apron, which is on the South Ramp of the Greenville Downtown Airport, 21 Airport Road Ext., Greenville, SC 29607.

We plan to open registration from 10:00 to 3:30 pm, and will fly the kidflights until the last registered Young Eagle is flown. We have 24 two-hour slots to fill between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 pm.  The 24 slots will be structured in two-hour overlapping segments for the pilots to fly (ie 10:30 to 12:30, 11:30 to 1:30, 12:30 to 2:30, etc).
 
Additionally, a BBQ will be held Saturday evening following the rally for all volunteers, including the Young Eagle Pilots.  VDI will be closed during the hour of the evening fireworks.  We have a limited number of complimentary one-night hotel accommodations for Saturday night on a first-come, first serve basis for Young Eagle pilots coming from 100 nm or more from their home airport. Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you wish to participate and whether you will need overnight accommodations.
