FREE FOOD for aircraft that fly in IF YOU RSVP!!!***
We are having the same food truck as the previous 2 years come and help us. If you fly in and RSVP, ***I will probably be able to get you free food (depending on how many people attend). 1st RSVP's have priority.***
KLEE Tower Instructions: Tower Freq as normal. Seaplanes, please approach the class "D"airspace from the East and stay East of the airport until on the water. Do NOT overfly the runways or airport.
Bring your own chairs, games, toys, etc. Lets have some fun!
Parking: There's 3 places to park:
Seaplane apron, seaplane dock, or FBO (landplanes and car riders only).
1: The Seaplane apron next to ramp/dock is a non-movement area, so tower isn't in charge of taxing inside the apron. Follow signals from other pilots that are helping you park. When parking here, please park close to each other, so there is enough parking for the rest of the planes. Please help keep things clean and don't litter, I will bring trash bags to clean up afterwards, but please do you part.
2: Tied up to seaplane dock. This is mainly for straight floatplanes (NOT amphibians). The straight floatplanes will need priority to dock since they don't have wheels, so if you have wheels, please park in other location. Bring your own lines, fenders, and equipment for docking.
3: At Sunair FBO ramp. Only recommended for non aircraft that want to park there. The FBO has one vehicles that will help shuttle those back and forth, but I am trying to keep vehicle traffic to a minimum. Not inviting car riders, sorry.
Please buy fuel while at KLEE to help the FBO who is helping us.
Bring your own lines/anchors/ tiedowns/chalks/etc.
Feel free to invite friends, but have them RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with
airplane callsign, type, and people on board.
