Skymaster Fly-In - Everybody Welcome

Skymaster Fly-In - Everybody Welcome

Dateline Daytona Beach, FL 12/19/2006. 

The Skymasters Owners and Pilots Association will have its 2007 Fly-In at Lucaya, Bahamas May 16-18, 2007.  See for information.  Advance events include See Daytona Beach Like a Native on May 14 and Fly to Great Harbour Cay on May 15. 

Great events and speakers are planned, including Skymaster Happy Hour, Sunset Cruise, Air Show and “Hands-On” airport session, “Shoot the Bull" Session With A&P Panelists, How To Fly 3,100 Miles Up The Amazon Without Getting Eaten By Piranhas, The Great Handheld vs. Panel-Mounted GPS Debate:  Which Is Better?, C337 Electrical Systems Expert Pete Somers all the way from England, and more. 

Port Lucaya, next to the city of Freeport on the island of Grand Bahama, offers lots of activities for both attendees and significant others.  Plentiful restaurants, taverns and shops fill Lucaya Marketplace, with a straw market adjacent.  A visit to Paradise Cove at Deadman's Cay is a relaxing afternoon trip.  There are casinos, nightly limbo contests, international shopping, and island tours galore to occupy those motivated to leave the pool or beach.  Besides superb beaches, the renown UNEXSO snorkeling/diving adventures purveyor is right next to headquarters hotel, featuring dolphin encounters, classes, even shark dives for the adventurous! 

One optional advance event is on 5/14/07 Monday afternoon/evening:  See Daytona Beach Like a Native.  See the famous Daytona Beach Boardwalk, historical district and Bike Week’s Main Street.  Sunset Happy Hour and dinner as at an Intracoastal Waterway riverside restaurant facing west over the water, with live Island Music and a "Flying to the Bahamas" briefing. 

Another optional advance event occurs 5/15/07 Tuesday:  Fly to Great Harbour Cay (aka "Ernie's Island"), with an optional afternoon boat trip to the fabled "Blue Hole" featuring death-defying cliff jumping.  Dinner is next to the hurricane hole marina (or some similarly swanky place -- or maybe some local dive with great Margaritas -- we'll see!). 

See for information.
