"Draco", Mike Patey's PT-6 powered super STOL aircraft at KMHV.
Over 100 aircraft flew in for the 7th Annual Mojave Experimental Fly-In (MEFI) on Saturday morning. I enjoyed meeting fellow pilots and displaying "May" at this historic airport. Thank you for the award MEFI.

AOPA Fly-In - Livermore, CA (KLVK)
June 22, 2019
It was a pleasure to meet Robert DeLaurentis, fellow Earthrounder and founder of "Flying Thu Life" at the Livermore AOPA fly-in. He brought along his specially modified Turbo Commander with high altitude long-range fuel cells, for his upcoming Pole-to-Pole flight in November 2019. Good luck Robert on your second RTW flight!
EAA AirVenture - Oshkosh, WI (KOSH)
July 23-27, 2019
The EAA assigned me a prime location to display "May" at AirVenture (Red Oval - Intersection of P-1 and Knapp). Thank you to all the pilots who stopped by to ask questions about the RTW trip. I handed out swag until it ran out.

Earthrounders at Airventure
Four Earthrounders showed up to hear Robert DeLaurentis's Pole-to-Pole presentation at the EAA museum. It was gratifying to meet these pilots in person and share a few anecdotes. New Earthrounder, Norman Surplus, just finished an incredible 9 year around the world in his MT03 autogyro.
Other known Earthrounders who were at Sloshkosh 2019:
Brian and Sylvia Foster - (RTW 2017 in a RV10)
Juan-Peter Schulze (RTW 2017 in a Cessna 210)
Matt Guthmiller (RTW 2014 in a Bonanza)
