The holidays are coming up soon, so why not start planning an unforgettable flying vacation? This issue features adventures across the country that are suitable for families as well as romantic couples. With mild winter days, sunny beaches, and luxurious spas, not to mention the Legoland Theme Park and a new Legoland Hotel, our cover story, Carlsbad, Calif., is a real treat for kids and their parents. Pilots flock to McCall, Idaho, for excellent winter sports and a unique carnival held at the end of January. Branson, Mo., is one of America’s entertainment capitals, and they really put on a show at Christmas. Downhill and Nordic skiing, tubing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing are all enjoyed at Deep Creek Lake, Md., but the lake is also an elegant setting for romantic candlelit dinners or long snowy walks. Whichever adventure you pick, enjoy yourself this holiday season.
Redbird Skyport, a multi-faceted general aviation services facility, flight school, and aviation laboratory at San Marcos Municipal Airport has teamed up with big names in the aviation business world to offer 100LL at the breathtakingly low price of $1 per gallon through October 15, particularly during AOPA Summit. Jeff Van West, Director of Redbird Media, says the goal is to determine how big a role fuel price plays in flying activity, and, if fuel price isn’t the barrier, what it is.
