2021 Day Trippin #1 – June 26th


Day Trippin’ with MCVO
Saturday June 26, 2021
9:00am Take Off

Kalamazoo Air Museum and more!
MCVO is starting the Day Trippin’ season in high flying style with

Vipers, Trains & Planes

The Flight Plan:

-A “low altitude” cruise along mostly off-highway roads.

-First “layover” Lost Railroad Museum in Grass Lake.  A beautifully done, local museum with virtual and live presentations plus many fine artifacts.

-A “flight delay” at “concourse” One Well Brewing in Kalamazoo for lunch, the “Air Marshal” reports they have dine-in, take out and patio service.  Their “beverage cart” has a selection of micro-brews.
Please note: indulging while “flying” is not endorsed by the club.

-“Departure” is on the “1/2 mile runway” (it’s a short drive)

-With “arrival” at Kalamazoo’s Air Zoo Aerospace & Science Experience.
A local treasure with two facilities on the same campus.  There are static displays plus restoration in progress.  It truly transcends time and space.

Your “Zoo ticket” is courtesy of MCVO
Food and Drink are the responsibility of the Pilot

-“Final destination” is an optional Cruise to Dinner at Zukey Lake Tavern, an MCVO favorite.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED TO ARRANGE A ‘GROUP’ RATE
To register use the “Event Registration” Button below
If you miss the registration DEADLINE of 6/16 you’ll need to “stowaway”.
