And the rumor has it that a pretty damn good RW organizer will be there.

Plus I can personally attest to the best cutaway spotting aircraft around.

Rumor seems to be true:

Scott Latinis is scheduled to be the RW organizer - member of Arizona Airspeed champion 16-way and 10 way team and one of the leaders of P3!!

Frankly if you want to do some challenging stuff... He is your man. You want to start getting your name known to the P3 big way stuff... He is your man.

What would be the closest airport to fly out to? I'm in NY, was thinking about a trip to FL and this seems like a good opportunity.

I fly into FLL and rent a car. 595 > 75 > 27 North. Usually takes about 60-75 minutes.

Fort Lauderdale is about an hour drive, Miami is about 1.5 hours away. West Palm ( PBIA) is about 1 hour away as well

Does anyone ever carpool to these events? I'm only 21, I think when your under 25 you get raped in rental car fees.

Yea, just looked, every car rental place wants to charge $75 extra for being under 25..thats more then the entire cost of renting for 4 days. If anyone is planning on renting a car and would like to carpool and split the cost, please PM me!
