The Community of Flying

Steve Blonstein, General Manager WVFC


Some members may remember our old web site, and most will want to forget it.   There were a couple of redeeming features that we lost in the transformation to the new web site; one of those being a part of the bulletin board.  There was a board dedicated to “Destinations”, where members could post information about their trips to various places, and a discussion could get going about that destination.  While we don’t have the discussion ability on the new web site, we have launched a section in the Members Area aptly named “Destinations”.  Members have started submitting mini-presentations on various cool places to go, how to get there, what to do when you get there, where to stay, where to eat, FBOs, rental cars, crew cars etc.

I think that many members treat far away locations with a little trepidation and probably rightfully so.  There’s quite a lot of planning required, and everyone wants to make the trip worthwhile given the planning, time, and money required for the trip.  Most members like the idea of seeking advice, and while there are other sources out there, there’s something unique and special about getting inside information from another club member.

It’s in its early days and there are a handful of presentations already up on the website including Big Bear Lake-CA, Shelter Cove-CA, Sedona-AZ, and Bandon-OR, and more.  Each presentation is in the form of a few PowerPoint slides saved in a pdf format for easy download and viewing.  If you’re willing and able to add to the collection from either past or future trips, then please make and submit the presentation to me at Over time, the plan is to build this area up as a major new resource on our new web site.

You can visit the new Destinations page by going to the Member’s Area of the web site and clicking on the icon “Destinations”.
