I’m in the early stages of planning a fly-in for 260se’s (hey, we’d be happy to see SR2X’s too) and would like to pick your collective brains on selecting a site in Idaho or Montana, something like:
In the midst of beautiful scenery, but not too challenging for those who may not be so experienced in the mountains.
Paved or very good quality turf. Not super-busy but should have fuel available on the field or nearby. The kind of airport where one can hang out on the ramp and talk airplanes without getting in the way of operations or giving security types apoplexy.
Nice but not extravagant accomodations on-airport or very close by. Camping perhaps available.
Availability of other activities (outdoors things? sightseeing? shopping? other?) for family members who may not thrive on hanging out and talking airplanes all day.
I will certainly consult the “Fly Idaho” and “Fly the Big Sky” publications, but if any of you have suggestions I would be delighted to hear them.
