Aero Expo Friedrichshafen EDNY 10-13 April 2019

What do people think would happen to all the VFR slots if the field ends up being OVC500ft on the day?

They get wasted.

A lot of IFR pilots have to cancel too. One cannot fly a light plane in nasty convective weather. I once had to take an airline (nowadays this is hard except on a weekend; from many places you have to do 2 flights each way) and once I flew the TB20 to Stuttgart (which was a huge hassle, driving 3hrs in heavy rain to return the hire car and picking up 3 speed tickets from ~20km/hr cameras ).

From Gatwick one can do Zurich and then it is direct. 2hr train down to the show. Or one can fly to EDNY but this is 2 flights on a weekday and 2 flight back on Sunday, and this costs a lot more.

Won’t happen the way it looks right now. Looks pretty good most of the week.

That would be very impressive forecasting ability if it proved correct this far in advance.

Just to remind everyone not following the telegram group: we are having a meetup at the Felders Restaurant at 7pm local time on the Friday. Currently we have about 20 people.

No doubt there will be others during the day, especially for those who are there only for the day. There is a nice restaurant at the exhibition. I don’t know its name and can’t find it on google but it is upstairs, buffet, good food, quiet, and reasonably priced. Very few people seem to discover it

A lot of new IFR slots have been released this morning in case anyone is still looking for one.

My pal’s had to drop out so I’ve got a seat going Fairoaks EGTF to Friedrichshafen EDNY tomorrow (11th) back Saturday (13th). Need answer by 1700Z when I will be filing FP.
