Oroville (KOVE) – April 19th – The Joy of Fly-in (Flyout)

One of the greatest joys in aviation is the liberty to see the world from above. Ask a pilot about her adventures and you’ll get stunning pictures of lakes, windmill farms and distant communities on mountain tops, stories of $100 burgers and ravishing shorelines and whale sightings. What a fabulous chance to spread your wings and discover a new community with other aviators!

In April, four planes from RHV, PAO and SQL brought ten adventurers to Oroville. It was a beautiful day! Resplendent with blue skies and wispy clouds, right along an 18-hole golf course that exuded serenity, and a nondescript little café that surprised and delighted its guests with freshly made, excellent food. A culinary delight!

(For those planning to make this trip in the future, make an aviators note to park at the golf course and avoid an adventurous walk through taxiways and bushes…)

Sometimes people don’t want to fly to new locations because—well, they’re never been there. But as with any adventure, you haven’t been there until you have!  And then you can prepare to be delighted by great food, new friends, and a change of scenery.
