Spring is almost here…

Fly 'n Things

cb1Lately, we have been having ups and downs in weather. First cold. Then warm. Then sleet and maybe snow. I shoveled a total of two times this winter and getting ready to shovel tomorrow. Considering my initiation to east coast winter 5 years ago, when I had to shovel a foot of snow not once, not twice, but three times, and learn new words such as Snowmageddon, I say this winter has been mild so far. Two times, two 5inches of snow: is not bad! The cold, below freezing temperatures are another thing with worries of frozen pipes and more. Still this winter hasn’t been bad so far.

The official forecast for peak Cherry Blossoms was announced yesterday: April 11-14 2015. The week kicked off March: the official launch of the meteorological spring. Come March 8th, we spring forward.

Words on Wednesday: Imagination

“Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations…If you adopt their attitudes, then the possibility won’t exist because you’ll have already shut it out … You can hear other people’s wisdom, but you’ve got to re-evaluate the world for yourself.”

Sunday dawned,  clear and beautiful.

 

After breakfast, all of us departed to the airport in shared cabs.  The time was here. Over the weeks we had planned and re-planned. And that morning, re-planned again.

In order to fly to the Bahamas there are some key things to plan ahead of time:

  1. A User Fee Decal for the airplane
  2. A Radio license for the airplane
  3. A radio license for each of the pilots who wishes to fly in the Bahamas
  4. An owner authorization letter for rented aircraft
  5. An international VFR or IFR flight plan to the airport of entry (AOE) with customs in the Bahamas
  6. An eAPIS account to submit the manifest prior to entry into the Bahamas
  7. Customs forms per person or family and an Arrival form for each aircraft
  8. A Transient form to fly to multiple airports within the Bahamas
  9. Life vests (and raft if you prefer) for safety.
