    2017 East TN late fall fly-in. Oct 27-29

    One of the last fly-ins of the year. Everyone is welcome. Don't need to be a member of EAA or this chapter. My involvement will be much less due to personal crisissssss, but I still hope to attend. Information below is pretty much a copy and paste from last year.

    Will be held at another private strip just northeast of Dunlap, TN. The strip is about 2500 ft of nice and level grass. A line of pine trees on the east side provide some wind block but can also cause some wind shifts.

    Here are the coordinates: 35°26'01.1"N 85°20'35.3"W OR 35.433639, -85.343139. This airport is not on sectional. Please DO NOT land at Matthews airport (TN89).

    This is the approach from the NE looking SW. You can see there is a set of power lines several thousand feet before the start of the runway. These are not in the path of a normal descent so DON'T HIT THEM. Use left traffic here for uniformity and to stay inside power lines.

    This is the approach from the SW looking NE. There is somewhat higher terrain on this side. There are also a good bit of livestock under this photo it would nice to be a polite neighbor here. Left Traffic for this runway and a close in appoach keeps you away from the slightly higher terrain and keeps a normal glidepath and away from the livestock.

    Everyone is invited. You do not need to be a member to come. There will probably be a small fee to cover costs for camping. Pets that are good around people and planes are welcome.

    Food will be provided: Each meal will be between $5 to $10 depending on how fancy the meal is. You will need to email if you plan to attend so we can plan meal amounts.

    More information:
    Updates will most likely be on the Facebook page. You do not have to have a Facebook account to view. I will try to update everything.
