MAESSR Rescue Plans

Well, if the wx holds out for Saturday we will have a fun day of flying with our furry friends from Mid-Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue (MAESSR).  A request for transport went out via email and this trip is in our backyard.  Ok, well backyard when it comes to transportation by plane.

The tentative flight plan; Pick up Zippie a 7 year old male at KTTN, Trenton Mercer Airport, head south east to KACY, Atlantic City to pick up Donna who is going to her forever home in Irvington, VA. with our drop off at W75, Hummel Field.  Debbie is going to have Fudge, a 7 year old male ready for us to take home to Wilmington.

Ok we need to check the dog transport bag and checklist. Paper towels, water, treats, plastic trash bags, zip lock bags, moving blanket and an extra leash just in case.

By the numbers....
Total- 403 miles
Flight Time - 4hr 10 minutes 
Fun factor - out of sight!

Enjoy the flight and the company! Hope the wx holds out for you. I am looking forward to my return to pilots n paws once I have the Mooney online.

Can't wait to check out the Mooney!

Wind shear potential on all wx scans this morning. I will evaluate and make the go-no go call at the airport.

Worst case, I am driving the pups to Hanover VA. It's sunny out and a good day for a road trip 4 hours each way.
