AACITers -- We are just one week away from our flight to Furnace Creek, where our altimeters will read well below zero! We have several airplanes going, and also have a few passengers looking seats. If you’re flying a plane, and have an extra seat, please let me know.
I also need to know how many are going, so I can make reservations (required) for our group. If you’re flying, please let me know how many are in your plane.
We’ll plan to take off from EMT about 9:30 a.m.
Sunday, March 1. Rain date is March 8.
