This article will be updated soon. New dates for the next Landing are April 22-24, 2021 (venue and host airport remain the same)
Our annual gathering will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada April 22-24, 2021. We are monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic, but are planning on holding the Landing as of now. We have reached out to our venue and have received a document which describes their procedures for reopening; casinos and gaming were allowed as of June 4 in Nevada, and the Green Valley Ranch reopened then.

This year we convene at a luxury resort property, the Green Valley Ranch Resort, located in Henderson, Nevada just south and east of the famous Las Vegas strip. Our chosen property has beautiful grounds, a spa, shopping a short walk from the hotel; all of which offer our members and their spouses a place to vacation as well as learn. The property is in an uncrowded suburban area away from the busy strip, yet within a 15 minute shuttle or rideshare drive. In addition to ground and safety training and new information from our sponsors and intriguing keynote speakers; you will have ample time and opportunity to explore our Las Vegas surroundings. You can sightsee, hike the Red Rock Canyon, hit the spa or the pool, see a show, helicopter to the Grand Canyon, or possibly find a slot machine somewhere!
We anticipate an increased number of LOBO members and guests will attend in 2021. April is a great month to be in southern Nevada. The temperatures are pleasantly warm and the evening skies glow! Hotel rooms are scarce and prices rise because Spring is high season for visitors and conferences. We negotiated a special rate at the Green Valley Ranch of $179 per night for the Landing. We will add new reservation procedures here soon. (If you made reservations for the previous dates in October, the resort will cancel them as soon as we have set up a new room block. They will refund your deposit and you will need to make new reservations.)
The Henderson Executive Airport has agreed to host our group. It is one of three general aviation airports in the Las Vegas area and the most convenient to the downtown and strip areas. As it gets closer, we will have more details on parking and airport-based events.
Now that we have chosen the time and place, we are busy planning sessions that will equip our members with the tools necessary for safely flying and maintaining our high performance fleet of aircraft. We are actively seeking input from our members for topics and speakers that will provide us with the best and most timely information. If you have suggestions please contact me at s.gainza [at] lancairowners.com. Your board hopes to ensure you have the very best quality program, as well as lots of fun!
Registration will begin as soon as we finalize the meeting details and costs. Registration fees are set to cover the cost of the Landing. Note also that our Landing sponsors enable us to offset some of these costs. Your board works on an voluntary basis to make sure that the value of the Landing meets and exceeds your expectations. Mark your calendars now and plan to join us from October 15 to 17, 2020 in Las Vegas!!
