Mr. Thompson, we connected earlier this year when I reached out regarding your future event schedule and if Dayton could be in the conversation as a host site.
Thank you for taking time to reply. I understand that fuel prices have hindered some from attending events as well. It is interesting that you bring up landing at Wright Patterson. I recall that a L-19 is hanging in the Museum—-but my untrained eye may not be able to tell the difference. The staff and Event Team are open to using the back runway. I am working with another Aviation Group and it looks like they are going to be able to use the runway and land their planes. We are fortunate that there is a Hotel across the street from the Museum—with all the fencing it is not a direct access walk but the Museum is right there. For what it is worth—–2023 will be the 120th anniversary of the Wright Brothers Flight. I imagine that there will be some special activities at the Museum next year although I have not seen a schedule—maybe that is why the other aviation Group will land there? Appreciate you posting for the Northeast folks should they want to host a Regional.
