5th Annual Christmas Fly-In at Pine Island Airport
27 December 2010 ~ 2 January 2011
End 2010 and start 2011 with one of the few
things that make sense in our crazy mixed up world -
7 days you are free to fly; free to meet new and exciting
people who enjoy life like you; free to explore the Lee
Islands. This year we offer new and exciting activities:
Skydiving, Light Sport Instruction, aircraft sightseeing
RV spots (w/electric + water) are limited are being reserved
gatherings each night, food on site, and optional group
activities for pilots and non-flying folks. Boating, art,
beach, fishing - we have it available. That's the way we
roll here on the island.

John has aviation in his blood. When he was a
kid he rode in a basket in back of his dad's airplane. When
he was old enough to sit up he started reaching for the
stick. This photo was taken in 1954 - John is standing on
the plane in front of the rudder. Now a very young 62 John
is ready to try Powered Paragliding. John has passed his
PPG1 written test, enjoyed a tandem flight and is kiting the
wing very well. He is just waiting for a break in the
weather to foot launch solo.
Bill really enjoyed his solo flight. He
has been dreaming of the day. Bill will be back to get in
more flights and his USPPA PPG2 rating.
Bill has flown many things ~ including F105
Starfighter and jumbos as a TWA Captain! Bill was in the
USAF and was even a weatherman! Quite talented. The
Paramotor you see here has been in this garage for 7 years -
whispering to him "fly me". The MZ 313 engine is loud but
his solo trike flight - another aircraft under his belt!
