November 10 (Fri) 7:00pm Full Moon Flyers: FBO Party at Sac International

Event Date: 
Friday, November 10, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm


This month, some of us FOG pilots are going to do something we haven't done yet.  Land at Sacramento International Airport, park and have a party at the FBO.  If you're not a pilot, this may not seem like a big deal, but for a GA pilot this is our kind of fun.  Finding the right parking area for the 4-seat aircraft we fly.  Taking over the local FBO for a catered dinner party of our family and friends.  Then departing from this busy Class C airport with giant runways at night.  What a great way to bag a great airport, and have fun in the process.  

After further research and emails from FOG pilots about TSA issues walking to restaurants in the terminal, we decided to throw an FBO Party!  If you remember the infamous assault on SFO a few years ago, it will be more like that.  20-30 GA airplanes descend on KSMF Capital Jet Center for a private catered event in the FBO event room that probably spills out into their lobby.  Special food.  Special parking.  Lots of fun.

Due to the forecast of rain for our original date, we shifted the event to Friday, November 10th.  This is actually good news.  Friday, November 10th, is the official federal holiday for Veterans Day.  Take the day off and rest up for an evening of fun and flying.

Dinners like this one are great for bringing along friends and family members who aren't pilots. Show your significant other, kids, and friends what fun you have with your favorite hobby! 

Plan your trip to arrive just before 7:00pm at the South General Aviation Parking ramp (bottom left corner on airport diagram).  We'll be parked at Capitol Jet Center.  Remember to call Clearance Delivery for your VFR departure instructions prior to calling Ground Control (as indicated on ATIS). 

We are encouraging everyone to take along a student pilot, to share the fun. Ride sharing is always encouraged  Pilots: please list any open seats in your plane. Ride-seekers: please sign up, then contact those with open seats to ride along.

COST: 20$, you may either bring cash to the event or call the front desk at 650-946-1700 to pre-pay on a ccard.
