Upcoming Fly/Drive-In

Landings RestaurantCome join us Saturday, July 25th for lunch at The Landings Restaurant located at 2198 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad.
It’s a short walk from the ramp near the tower and Western Flight, Inc.
Check out their Facebook page.

Our intent is for everyone to follow local Social Distancing protocols, so we request that every participant should have a mask.
Also, each of us has their personal COVID protection preferences, so please be mindful of your proximity to others and
wear your mask if they are required.

We have a reservation at 11 am on the outside patio. Sign up is appreciated by Thursday evening
prior so we may provide a close count. The restaurant has been busy getting ready and
Michelle, the owner, announced they reopened May 27th and will be fully open before July 25th, our date!

If you haven’t visited Palomar in a while there are 10 transient parking spots on the ramp by
the tower. Western Flight, Inc. is next to the 10 transient parking spots
near the tower and will waive their ramp fee ($25) for a 10 gallon fuel purchase.
If you don’t need 10 gallons they’ve accepted a top off as well. When recently contacting
Western Flight they kindly confirmed these parking options are current.

For those that feel comfortable with it, we will meet up at the GAC at 9:30 for the pre-flight
briefing for Palomar. There will also be a GroupMe App group “Palomar”
for up to date communication concerning the lunch Fly in. Either way, please stay
in touch as plans can change unexpectedly. Please sign up online by 8:00 PM thursday, July 23rd.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
