Winter = Planning

120px-NieuportWith the winter season upon us in full force there has been very little opportunity to get into the sky, this is why we scheduled this time for planning. There are a few new developments in the aircraft portion of the flights.

The original intention was to fly a certified aircraft from an established manufacturer. What we may be flying on the adventure flights is a historical replica war bird. At present there are a few possibilities. The front runners for now are a Nieuport 17 and a Curtiss JN-4 Jenny both of WWI fame.

The use of one of these vintage aircraft will have a significant impact on the flight planning portion of the adventures as well as several significant benefits in maintenance and cost-per-operation areas. More details to follow.
