Labor Day Weekend Outlook

Aloha All,
Unfortunately MCAF has flight activities scheduled all weekend-
Currently there are hovercraft and helicopters all over westfield… may need to bring brooms next time we get out there.
Sorry if this opens the door on a major labor day project your significant other has in mind!
Fly Safe,
Have a great weekend

24-25 August Outlook

Aloha All,

MCAF has flight ops Saturday.

We’re good to fly Sunday.

 

Next week Labor Day weekend they have scheduled helicopter operations through the weekend.

We’ll have to call next Fri to see what the plan is. Normally we’ve stood down from model ops on Labor Day weekend due to the crowds at the beach.

 

This Wed   MCAF starts runway maintenance- helicopter activities to continue, so we’ll have to continue to check with Air Operations and ODO prior to model flight.

 

More details when I get them!
