27 December 2010 ~ 2 January 2011

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 a boat service that is able to
take you and your flying equipment out to the Cayo Costa
for a fun day on the nearly deserted beach. Schedule your group trip now!
Yes we will bring you back to Pine Island Airport at the end
of the day!
Schedules will be determined by advance booked requests.
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.

Frank G - 10 flights before
returning to NY!
worked hard while attending PlanetPPG and as a result was
named "Branch Manager -NY". Frank is a GA pilot and
got 10 PPG flights before he had to return to Long
Island New York. He has received approval in writing from the
FAA to fly under '700 in a very restricted airspace near the
approach to JFK International Airport. Have fun and be
careful Frank! (I want to see those pictures Frank!)
Rockwell was serious about learning to fly
when he arrived at Pine Island Airport with his "Hard Rock"
camper in tow. He wasn't going to leave until he could fly
his FB Monster Bullet trike. Rockwell and his family live in
Atlanta Georgia where Rock is a Manager at Verizon Wireless.
Rockwell has been back a few times already to fly with his
new friends at PlanetPPG. He is a true flying rock.

Hector used to live in Argentina where he
enjoyed 40+ free flying flights. He has progressed
