Hotel and restaurant on site.  Holiday Inn Express is across the parking lot.

Klingers restaurant is in the terminal (lunch and dinner).

If you use use Millenium Aviation FBO you can walk to the terminal building.  We can’t park in front of the terminal like we sometimes do because a charter 737 will be coming in to drop off passengers.

A BPPP certificate includes 2, 2 hour flight sessions (more or less) and this ground school.  The benefit to you is that it usually includes a flight review and instrument proficiency check.  Insurance companies like it and will sometimes offer a discount.  Some aging pilots require this training

if you are new to the Bonanza or Baron, this is critical training you need.

UPDATE – as of March 24 we have 56 people coming and there are some changes.  Klingers restuarant (on site) will be difficult to get into Friday night and perhaps impossible Saturday night.  Klingers is very busy these days.  But we did a survey and most of you will leave late Saturday afternoon and most of you are pretty flexible about lunch.

I will bring a car and show up at the Holiday Inn or terminal Friday around 5-5:30PM.  Others said in the survey they will also have cars.  There are 50 restaurants within 20 minutes so we will make do.

I will also be available to drive Saturday night.

I will bring in donuts, bagels & coffee for the morning and we may cater lunch in the room.
