Hangar Flying / Kanab Rutan Fly-In 2018
« on: May 16, 2018, 09:43:46 PM »
Hello Canard Pilots & Enthusiasts,

We had a great time with everyone last year in Kanab, and we are preparing for the Labor Day weekend event again this year. The Rutan Kanab 2018 Fly-in will take place September 1, 2, and 3 ( Saturday, Sunday, and departures on Monday).  It’s become popular with a number of people to arrive a day early on Friday, so we have coordinated with the hotel to block the rooms for the nights of Friday Aug. 31st, Saturday and Sunday Sept. 1, and 2nd.

If you haven’t been to the Rutan Kanab Fly-in, KKNB is a small town airport.  The three main reasons people say they love coming to Kanab for the fly-in: 1. The laid back atmosphere, 2. The scenery, and 3. The timed event.  Every year there seem to be between 20-30 planes that make the trip to KKNB, along with folks who drive in. We don’t plan a lot of scheduled activities, so that people can choose what they want to do, including plenty of airport “ramp talk”.  A few planned group activities that bring everyone together are typically the outdoor pizza party, a group fly out on Saturday morning, the timed event Sunday morning, and a group “awards” dinner on Sunday evening. There is plenty of free time during the 3 day fly-in to explore Kanab, Kane County, and the surrounding national parks and attractions. More “back seat” and “right seat” Canardians are attending Kanab each year, and there are activities available in the area for you if you’re not interested in hanging out at the airport.

For 2018, we secured lodging with the fantastic Canyons Collection hotels again ( three separate but commonly owned properties in close proximity ). We received great feedback from attendees last year about the lodging, and from the hotel management about the event. The 2018 room rates for the Rutan Kanab Fly-in are as follows:
The Canyons Lodge $99-$169/night + tax  (*includes continental breakfast) 13 rooms available
Canyons Boutique Hotel $179/ night +tax (*includes breakfast buffet) 20 rooms available
Quail Park Lodge $139/night + tax (*includes continental breakfast) 10 rooms available
           *Please do not book online*.

Please book Canyons Lodge as the primary hotel before the other two.  Identify that you’re with the Rutan Fly-in group when you call to make your reservations. Any hotel based social activities will be held on the grounds of the Canyons Lodge in the common areas. Also... book as soon as you can, because they’ll release our block of rooms fairly soon, after all... Summer is peak travel season. The 72 hour/ 3 day cancellation policy will apply to reservations, even though issues crop up last minute.

If you’d like to see the properties, the website is www.TheCanyonsCollection.com
(Again, *please do not book online*. ) Travis is the owner, and he’s the only independent hotelier left in Kanab. When you’re ready to book a room you’ll need to call them at 844-322-8824.  Their desk staff have all been briefed about our group event, and will be able to take your reservation by phone.

Because the event has grown in size, we have outgrown most venues in Kanab for our Sunday evening awards dinner. We have been exploring our options for alternatives.  If someone has a suggestion for the awards dinner that will accommodate 60 people, please email or contact us ASAP.  There is no written schedule of events available until we secure a plan for the awards dinner. We are hoping to have the Kane County Visitors Bureau bus available again for transportation to and from the hotel/airport.

Blue Skies,

Hangar Flying / Forward hatch latch/release
« on: May 08, 2007, 06:34:27 PM »
Hey folks...I have built an extended nose with "C" type hinges for the forward hatch.  I need to see if anyone has a latch design or ideas to that effect for the forward hatch.  I need a design that will release from the side via a cable inside the fues.  I have seen them out there but can't seem to track one down.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
