It looks like I am going to attend this event on Saturday. I could use the flight time and Adam Z agreed to join me. I plan on an 7:15 departure from Wilmington with a stop at KLOM, Wings field at 7:40 to pick up my co-pilot for the day. I'll file for KPOU and head north with an approximate ETE of one hour.
Here is the info for the event:
This is a Poughkeepsie first- an Airport Open House!
Well, there's more to POU than you may know, and they are rolling out the welcome mat for pilots in the region. The Open House on August 6 features:
8-10am: Breakfast at the new Chetti's Restaurant, where Lilliana's used to be. They are working very hard to become the airport restaurant for POU, and can use all the help they can get!
10-11am: A free FAA WINGS seminar on Aircraft Airworthiness will be given at Chetti's Restaurant at 10am.
11:30am-12:30pm: The Poughkeepsie Pilots Association will host a discussion on places to fly in the northeast, as well as some CFI Q&A.
Cessna and Columbia will also have static displays for pilots between 9am and noon.
