FD44 - Eagles Nest Airpark
Restricted area update as of Feb 27 at 7am, they said it should all be cold today. More info below in yellow
Both land planes and seaplanes are welcome! Invite your pilot friends, but they must RSVP to be invited. RSVP email:
Food will be provided.
Float manufacturer, Wipaire is sponsoring the event and paying for some of the food. Eagles Nest resident, Priscilla, is paying for the rest of the food and also all the other things like tables, fire department, etc. So please give a cash donation to help (donation bucket will be at food line).
Covid Precautions: Please bring and wear a mask and keep 6 feet from people. This is outside, so should be easy to keep everyone healthy.
Bring a chair
Please, NO PETS! (yes, I know, you have your favorite pet that loves airplanes, but sorry, the pets that live at Eagles Nest are not inviting your pets)
Bomb drop contest: Volunteers welcome to help judge. It's basically just for bragging rights. (anyone have some grapefruit or oranges that we could use for this??)
Frequency at FD44 is 123.15 which will be monitored by ground crew and will help guide to parking spot. Don't talk a lot on this frequency.
Julie Fetcko, passed last year and her sister is hosting this year. She is living there at Eagles Nest fly-in and is welcoming us again as well as others that live at Eagles Nest.
For those of you who haven't been here, see below pictures to see what to expect. This is a private fly-in and your aircraft operations are at your own risk. If you don't accept this, don't come.
Flying: I suggest as you get (within 20 miles) near to listen on the frequency. Annouce where you are at 10 miles out and then again at 5 miles. If the frequency is congested, stay away and delay until it frees up. There isn't a need for everyone to arrive at exactly the same time. Most likely if you come later, there will be less traffic.
Parking: Seaplanes land on water and either park on beach on NW, N, or NE shore, or if you want to ramp, use wheels to go up the ramp and park. Follow directions from ground people on were to park. (see pictures of parking in past years) Overflow is on east side of Runway about midfield in lot. We may need some amphibs to park on the beach, so bring tiedown stuff like anchor.
Updates will be posted here on this page, so check back at this page on the day of event as I may post anything pertinent on here.
UPDATE on SEALORD (Restricted Areas)
I called them on phone Feb 27 at 7 am, they said no scheduled areas, so should all be cold. However monitor 134.65 and ask "SeaLord" for status. Usually you just have to listen for a couple minutes an a different pilot will ask, so just monitor it ahead of time and you will know without even having to ask.
