“Stay at Home” orders
Wisconsin’s “Safer at Home” order went into effect this morning. I know several other states have similar restrictions. GA is way down (as observed on my radar scope this week) in northern IL and southern WI.
In Wisconsin, people may leave their homes “to engage in outdoor activity, as long as they maintain social distancing”. If I drive to the airport, pull my plane out of the hangar, fly around for an hour, and then out the plane away without coming within 100’ of another human, does it seem reasonable that flying is “an outdoor activity”?
The counter-point is that “travel” is “expressly prohibited” except for specific circumstances.
So the question: Is flying around and looking at the ground, or shooting some practice approaches considered “travel” or “outdoor activity”? Just curious what others’ thoughts are, particularly for WI or IL residents, or those with similar restrictions in their state.
