Arrival Day

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Flying

COPA pilots that had not come in ear­ly start­ed arriv­ing on Thurs­day morn­ing. After a work out at the resort I went to the air­port for a demo flight in the Eclipse Jet. WOW, what a treat. This is a excit­ing air­plane and must be con­sid­ered in where I go next in my fly­ing life. When I made my approach for land­ing there were Cir­rus every where com­ing in to Col­orado Spring. This is excit­ing stuff and I still get a lump in my throat when I see one Cir­rus after anoth­er land and taxi in. The Col­orado Jet Cen­ter han­dled the steady stream of Cir­rus per­fect­ly. You tax­ied up, unloaded, were tak­en to the Jet Cen­ter hangar for reg­is­tra­tion. After reg­is­tra­tion you could grab a snack and vis­it the exhibits that were all set up. Bus­es then took the arriv­ing atten­dees to the Cheyenne Moun­tain Resort. At 6:30 PM every­one gath­ered for wel­come cock­tails and very heavy Hors D’ Ouvevres at the tra­di­tion­al COPA Cabana with a Cow­boy fla­vor. There was a real buzz as old friends recon­nect­ed and new friends were made. All the exhibitors where there so it was a big party.
