2nd (of) 10 Cherokees to Oshkosh Clinic at 60J, Ocean Isle Beach, NC March 18-20, 2022

The second Cherokees to Oshkosh Clinic (out of ten) to qualify for the Mass Arrival into Airventure, is only ten days away.

This no cost clinic is open to all PA28, PA32, PA34, PA18 and Grumman Tiger, Cheetah, and Traveler pilots. The Grummans have been flying with the Cherokees since 2018.

I don’t normally recommend bringing guests to the CtO (Cherokees to Oshkosh) clinics, because it takes focus away from the task at hand, which is to learn, or knock the rust off, skills for flying together. But this clinic is different from all other clinics. The host, a retired restaurateur, owns three ocean front homes (vacation rental properties) on Ocean Isle Beach, NC (a 30 minute drive north of Myrtle Beach, SC) just two miles from the airport. These homes on the ocean each have a pool, and in total have 25 bedrooms, 19 full bathrooms and 3 half baths. This is a great trip for spouses/significant others since this is a resort area. The hosts provide breakfast and dinner for the group (and will provide full details to those who register). The host only charges for the cleanup fee from his service, the cost of the food and for a 15-passenger rental van, so it’s a great deal. They also open up their houses a few days early and after the clinic for those who wish to stay longer. It is a great social weekend on top of the flight training. The fee to stay for the weekend is $175 single and $200 double. For those who have been in the northeast or upper Midwest, this is a great get a way and teaser for what we can expect from the WX in the next month or two.

There is no better way to land at OSH than in a mass arrival with the airspace cleared for the group. The training the CtO provides is exceptional for the inclusion of training for a number of scenarios that could conceivably face a pilot, and element, or the flight.

Not a Piper or Grumman driver, there are mass arrival type groups for many other aircraft makes including Bonanzas, Cessnas, Mooneys, RVs and more.
