Both are about the same distance away but, Summit has considerably more amenities and is on the same road (896) as the hall and less than 10 minutes away. I don't know that I would suggest Greater Wilmington anymore for two reasons... 1) It's commercial with Frontier now flying regularly in and out to Florida and a few other locations but 2) more importantly is our new Delaware phenomenon called "JoeJam". Since he's been coming home every weekend, the airport and roads leading to his home are loaded with state police and DelDot trucks at every intersection, cut out and, many business parking lots for hours before his anticipated arrival and departure. When he's on the move.... a good part of the northern part of the state... isn't. LOL Now... on the flip side, a picture of Chris's plane with Air Force One in the background might be kinda cool.

    Brad,
    You sent me something? I didn't receive anything. Was it an email, PM,........carrier pigeon?


    I haven't thought about my flight yet. There is plenty of time to work out the details.

    It was a PM on here. There's nothing secret about it so I'll just copy & paste:

    Hey there! As a heads up, it's looking like SELEM is going to be at my facility from August 8-13th. Adam and I are still hashing out some details and economics and such before it becomes official and public but, I'm doing preliminary work with getting hotel discounts; a B&B lined up for those that liked the Trotthouse vibe and all that sort of stuff and, I figured I should give you the lowdown on airport info should you decided to transport yourself here. This would be your probable destination:

    https://summit-aviation.com/about/airport-operations/

    and it's less than 10 minutes from the venue. There's another much smaller airport about the same distance and where I'm likely going to take my Part 107 test but, I think Summit makes the most sense for you. It's on the same road as the venue so, easy to get to and from - no turns and a four lane highway.

    It's possible we might even do a FLEM before SELEM but, we'll see how it goes.

    Hope all is well!

    HA! That's the kinda thing I would have used to do but, since I blew it a couple years ago and was like 13th, it's lost it's luster. I was like 11th to register/pay this year.

    Seriously Thanking you all for the solutions!

    Just...the air has "been on fire" for So Long now...I have to Really Think on traveling and everything involved.

    The best place for commercial flights would be Philadelphia International, right?
    See my post about commercial airports in the sign up thread but, you can use either PHI (Philly) or BWI (Baltimore-Washington) BWI is about 10 minutes further away and, there's going to be a couple tolls - $1.50 at the harbor tunnel in Baltimore and $6 one way northbound at the Susquehanna River BUT... your flight may be cheaper and there may be a greater selection to choose from at BWI. I bet I use BWI 80% of the time these days over Philly, even though Philly is a bit closer.

    Inside, we will use our banquet chairs which are a metal framed stacking banquet chair with a cloth nicely padded seat and back. They're fairly sturdy and comfortable. Outside on the patio we have wrought iron style chairs with arms which are really nice and, nothing says you couldn't bring one inside if its more comfortable. I won't subject anyone to the wooden Chiavari chair. Bean bags will work in either ClubSELEM or the "auditorium" so feel free to bring one if you wish.

    Thanks for the info Brad!

    I checked my PM's and the last one I got from you was in 2019 about the Pluto. Wonder what happened.
