SF BAPA Fly-In, Dunlap, CA, May 2-3 2015

Hello Members!

The next BAPA Fly-In will be held at Dunlap on May 2nd-3rd 2015.  

Dunlap is one of the most consistent sites around.  Note that Dunlap is a P-3 site, though P-2 pilots may fly there with qualified sponsors and supervision - and best arranged in advance.  Please RSVP if you're thinking about coming to Dunlap, and we will set up an Evite with all the respondents the week prior to the fly-in for coordination.

SF BAPA has obtained reservations for our group at St Nicholas Ranch. There will be dorm rooms for men and women for $15 per night, and more private lodge rooms at $70 per night.

St Nick’s can also provide our group a hearty breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as a full dinner Saturday evening. The meals are quite reasonable - I believe $10 for full breakfast and $15 for dinner. St Nick's requires a group of 15 in order to open the kitchen for meals. Note: those pilots choosing to camp in Dan’s LZ can nonetheless participate in meals at St Nicks. Please give advance notice.

As for rides up the hill, we will need to coordinate at the LZ before flying in the mornings, and sort out drivers and retrieves. Please be in the LZ not later than 0900 on Sat and Sun morning, or you may be accidentally left behind. 

We will follow up with more information as we get closer to the event and know how many folks plan to attend.  If you are unfamiliar with Dunlap, please read up the site at and the local club's webpage at  Note that everyone needs to pay their yearly flying dues to the local club prior to flying at Dunlap. Details can be found at the weblink above.

I just noticed there was a typo in the previous article. The day for our next meeting is Tuesday March 8th. This has been corrected, and is reflected below as well.


Hello BAPA Members and Bay Area Pilots,

This is a reminder of the bi-monthly BAPA meeting tomorrow, Tuesday March 8th, at the Red Lobster in Milpitas, CA. The meeting is open to both members and non-members of BAPA. We will begin with a social hour at 6:30pm, then proceed to our normal meeting. Following the meeting, we will have a special presentation from Jug about the XC and Spring Leagues for 2016.

I would highly recommend attending, as we will be covering some important topics for the upcoming flying year. Additionally, this is a great opportunity to meet fellow pilots and find out what's going on with our great community here in the Bay area. For those who are unable to make the journey, we have a live stream available for viewing at:
