Enjoy daily treks to places like Valley of the Gods, the fingers of Lake Powel, the area surrounding Moab including Arches and Canyonlands national parks and more. These places are spectacular to see from the ground, but when viewed from an AirCam the visual experience is almost indescribable. The end of each day becomes an AirCam social event as our group gets together to share the experiences of the day.
We will base the planes at Blanding Airport (KBDG) where there is plenty of ramp space, 100LL fuel and a small FBO building with restrooms.We’ll stay in the nearby town of Bluff which offers great accommodations and many superb restaurants.
Many in our group will stay at the either the Desert Rose Bluff or Recapture Lodge. Check out their websites and book your reservations early because we expect both of them to fill up. If those hotels are full, or don’t suit your needs, there are others available. The town of Bluff is very small and all of the hotels are relatively close to each other so it’s not super important which hotel you choose.
Fondly referred to as a “swarm,” (see also: “gaggle”) a group of AirCam owners and enthusiasts descended on Jekyll Island during the weekend of May 21-23, 2021. Over a dozen AirCams were joined on the ramp at the Jekyll Island Airport (09J) by another half-dozen aircraft participating in the gathering. Several newcomers quickly became family, with owners and enthusiasts celebrating the emergence of another “AirCam smile” following a demonstration flight around Jekyll Island and low-and-slow sightseeing along the beaches of nearby Cumberland Island. There wasn’t an empty seat in sight at Phil Lockwood’s safety briefing and seminar on low-altitude flying and the crowd returned at dinnertime for a group gathering of more than 60 people! On behalf of our crew, we were delighted to spend time with the AirCam family after a lengthy hiatus from our storied gatherings. Our party was extremely grateful for the hard working staff at the Jekyll Island Club Resort. From all of us at Lockwood Aircraft, we sincerely appreciate your patronage. Thank you so much for being a part of the AirCam adventure!
