The dates of the upcoming LOBO Landing are Wednesday, October 5 (evening welcome reception) through Sunday, October 9 (optional tour of the Biltmore estate). We plan to have ground school presentations, keynote presentations, member forums, and other topics of interest on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We plan to leave several hours each day open for those who want to arrange flight training with a LOBO endorsed instructor. We are working to get many of those instructors to commit to attending the meeting. So far we have confirmed that Matt Speare will do a session for the LOBO Flygirls, and a keynote speaker confirmed who will focus on instrument flying techniques and best practices. I am actively seeking speakers and topics for this meeting. If you have any ideas, please contact me or post them here. We have two sponsors who have already made verbal commitments to attend, Pratt and Whitney Canada, and Aerotronics. Garmin is working to sponsor and will at least send a representative. I am in contact with many of our partner businesses to see how we can offer our members up to date information about products and services relevant to Lancair and EVO owners and builders.
Asheville is a great place to visit anytime, but the fall is spectacular. There are lots of visitors at this time of year, so please don't hesitate to make your hotel reservation now; you can change or cancel without penalty almost up to the meeting date. The block will fill soon; if we wait too long to expand it, rooms will not be available at the great rate of $199 a night at the Hilton Biltmore Park. Here is the link to make a reservation:
See you in Asheville!
