Come Fly with us!


Pine Island, Florida - 2008

 27 Dec  2008  to  01 Jan 2009 -  Pine Island, Florida  

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.  The 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.
