Island, Florida - 2008
2008 to 01 Jan 2009 - Pine
It's NOT winter here! Paul Czarnecki's from
Planet PPG.com hosted another PPG event at Pine Island Airport which
is near Cape Coral, Florida. You can fly morning, noon and
evening in the sun shine state over the beaches, mangrove and watch
the dolphins and manatees swimming around the islands. You can camp with tents or RV's on site with
lots of non-flying activities and many places to eat nearby.
We arrived Pine Island on Friday evening 26 Dec 08.
next day a few PPG Pilots from Quebec had arrived to enjoy the warm air. Three Quebec pilots made the trip to
Cayo Costa Island and stayed there several hours soaking up the sun. We're
planning a mass launch to the Island when conditions are good!! We'll be
staying at Pine Island for several day's after the event, then we
will be departing towards Houston Texas to visit my niece.
