Bill, one of these days I am going to come back to AK to visit, and this time I am going to make it onto that beach and did clams too.  Did you see the video of the approach in my AK trip video?  We set a missed approach point up based on time or hitting minimum vis going in.

I saw the most recent video that you made. I will be flying your way in my CH801 this summer. Do you have any good recommended places to go, tips on beach landings, etc?  Thanks

Sam McNair

Hi Bill
My CH601HD is enroute to Alaska. I hope to have tail and Fuselage done by spring (Alaska Spring). See you when you return.

Hey Bill,

Good to hear from you! I crashed my CH-701 on Kustatan River last August. I'm in Texas until May 11 so I can't attend but thanks for the invite.

Best Regards,

Hi Bill,

Were you ever in contact with Jeff Fortune? I tried to message him on his page, but no response yet. Is he still involved with Zenair aircraft, or is he out of flying. you wouldn't happen to have his email, by any chance, would you?

We are going to be driving up there, later this summer, just by car. I wish we were flying, but not this time. Do you ferry your 801 back and forth every year, of does it stay in Alaska?

Good morning Bill,

Just wondering how long you stay up there in Alaska in the summer. You did mention hunting up there in the fall, so I imagine you stay till September at least. We are thinking of our vacation trip the last week in August, first 2 weeks in September. Just wondering if you would still be up there. What kind of temperatures would we be seeing? We have been looking at some scenery pictures on the web, looks like it might be hard to leave Alaska, once you go there, Thanks again for the info on the under seat fuel pumps.

Hi Bill, I got the little one home and settled in (for the most part). You are welcome to stop by anytime I'm here.

Sure. Just let me know when. My life is going to get really hectic in the next couple of days, I have a baby due yesterday. Things should settle down when we get him home.
