I'll resurface this relevant subject again. My logic is this: Pilot A flys his aircraft in Pilot B's allocated space at the event and has a mid air collision with Pilot A while Pilot B is fully aware of possible collision. Will Pilot B pony up and pay the bill to take responsibility? High chance not, or not without a struggle. The intentional invasion of airspace is unsafe and without courtesy with respect to the Pilot A's expensive machine.

The solution at all fun fly events is to exercise full awareness and courtiousness at all times to greatly minimize the chance for collision, and to respect the inherent dangers one could impose. Doing otherwise displays that person doesn't give a sh!t about anyone else or their equipment. I promise you if someone took out your equipment you too would be upset and your attitude would change.

Thanks for reading. It's not comfy cozy reading but needs to be reminded.

Sorry Sam2b
I am an old fart and forgot that you had issues (in the past...with a certain individual). I don't intend to invade your airspace with plane or plank. I made what I thought was a light joke and I do agree with you about your concerns. Didn't intend to start a war.
That being said you should really let it go and move on, life is too short and there are bigger things out there to worry about. That individual is out protecting our Country, and yes he's most likely invading any airsace he can...with authorization.
Have a great time up there. Fly low and be safe.

Well said Matt the past is the past and we should not dread on it.
We should all have Sean in our thoughts as he gives up this years fun flys to tracking down terrorist in Afghanistan and make all our lives safer. I personally am bring only helis, but I don't believe we should band airplanes, but the pilots should respect air space.

I am really excited to see you all and I will be bring some heli stuff if you need anything let me know.

Paul the pilots meeting will be at 9:00 am. If you don’t make it there in time no worrys

As far as the airspace is concerned no matter what you are flying be courteous and use common sense.

I'm gonna miss Sean this year

Lets have FUN

Yeah but I'm concerned about the initiation into this "cool kids club". I heard Chuck has some real "interesting" tendencies. ROTFL!!!

That's a hard one to answer. Most the people who have to travel to the event are packing up to leave and get back on the road. The people who don't have to travel far usually stay for a while on Sunday. This is how it is at most of the events here in the Northwest. The bigger events people usually show up earlier in the week.

Thanks,
Chris

ChrisK7, all of us attending will have Logo Xxtreme helicopters - we tend to be a bit extreme since the Seattle weather forces us to be shut-ins 7 months out of the year so we tend to go bananas a fun fly events. Just kidding, no Xxtreme helis this time but plenty of fun & fellowship.

Those are isolated thunder storms you're seeing - Which I take to mean we will be completely isolated from them...
