    FF17 East will be my first. It's an 8 hour drive for me from New Jersey. I plan on bringing some planes but most of all want to build some FT planes with my wife and teach her how to fly too. From what I've seen from all the video's, it is the reason I am driving 8 hours

    Years ago, I've attended "fun fly's" with my flying club... This will be different, it's HUGE, fun, meeting new people, hopefully meeting the FT crew and flying with them... Spending time with wife on a mini vacation and camping for a few days...

    I think you will LOVE IT too!!! You should go...

    For a peace sign, the inside of the hand is shown, not the back.

    I've tried to tell Stefan that his sign is basically like showing a middle finger in the UK... :-)

    Here the phrase "Peace out" was started in the hood. They all flash gang signs with the back of their hand showing and the peace out backwards thing comes from that. Its all in one hand motion as they flash the gang sign then say good bye with the peace out thing.

    The younger generations seem to get more education from rap videos these days then from schools which is why things like that are popular.

    I'm fortunate to have FF almost in my back yard. 2.5 hours from the house. Just wish they were closer so I could get a job with them. That would be a bit of a commute to make every day. LOL

    Cheers!

    I can tell you that this is the best community event you will find anywhere in the world! I have made so many friends, now family at this event. I have been to every one at the OG FliteFest Furey Field, and I drive 13+ hours to get there. It doesn't matter if you bring something to fly or not, this is like a family reunion without all of the drama!!!

    These people are my family and I would not give up a chance to be with them for close to a week!

    It really is a family reunion. And if the folks you meet don't feel like family, wait about an hour... ;-)

    I've been to all three FF East events so far; the first year, we met a few guys who asked if we could share our shelter with them. The second and third years, we saved space for them. Now it's just assumed we'll meet up again this year. Like I said, family!

    By all means, try to make it out this year. I remember thinking after the first year that FF is a mountaintop experience in a flat field... go figure, but true.

    Having discovered Flite Test less than a year ago, FFE17 will be my first event. I'll be attending with my father who is driving 13 hours with a van full of camping gear and airplanes. I live 5 hours from the event.
