Fly over for the Hospitals in Maine

Postby David » Thu May 21, 2020 5:23 pm

I work for a Hospital system and took a personal day with two of my RV buddies to recognize the work and dedication they give day-in and day-out. We flew over 8 hospitals thanking the healthcare workers during the trying times.

Round trip was a little over 200 nm around Maine. It has been amazing the responses after we finished the tribute. Many tears, cheers, and joyful thanks from the staff at the hospitals

Weather turned out great considering we planned the mission a week ago with the Hospital. The amazing thing was how nice planning was with ForeFlight for the published times for each target. Small adjustment but we were over all of the targets +- a min.

I contacted ATC the week before to plan the trip through their air space. They were great to give assistance ahead of time and during the flight.

Thanks to Jim and Jonathan for their time, fuel and commitment.
