New Braunfels Fly-In/Airshow
« on: November 12, 2014, 11:32:49 pm »
Hello all, I am pleased to say that Evan has allowed me to coordinate an air show to go with the Fly-In at New Braunfels Regional Airport (KBAZ). How we plan to have the traffic controlled is there is going to be a radar controller and then there is going to be KBAZ Tower and we are going to have "follow me" cars to park aircraft in the grass area between the two runways and taxiway F. I am making this post because I am trying to find people to perform in the air show. The air show is going to be 2 hours, so the more acts we can get, the better. The performers can be group performances, solo performances, and glider performances (There will be a human operated tow plane, so that's not an issue). We also can use a tow pilot if somebody wants to fill that position. We can also use some people as Follow me car operators. Private Message me if you are interested in any of the things listed above. Also, if any of the performers are going to demo an aircraft that cannot take off or land on New Braunfels' 5400ft runway, there is San Antonio International Airport (KSAT) 24.5nm away with a 8500ft RWY and Randolph Air Force Base (KRND) 16nm away with a 8350ft RWY. I hope to see ally of people at the event.

"Follow me" cars are probably not a good idea. Due to FSX multiplayer substitution, anyone who does not have the car installed in their FSX will see it substituted as another aircraft (probably a 172 or something of that nature), and that will just cause confusion.

Perhaps a side frequency where an ATC-like individual could help direct people to a lineup of parked aircraft?

FWIW, Austin Bergstrom International (KAUS) used to be an AFB and it has a 9000' runway and also a 12248' runway. In case somebody wants to show off the Concorde or another fast bird. :)

What date and time?

Also, the Follow-Me cars could be potentially made a required download for the event to ensure that they show up properly and not as the default 172. Just an option.

If anybody has any questions about the area, I am actually local and know this airspace like the back of my hand so feel free to ask me questions.
25K, are you from KBAZ? It would be great to meet another local simmer!

I don't think so. Just flew over KBAZ today, looks still the same.
Though they sure are upgrading the terminal building, it is starting to look like a log cabin. LOL Can we get some green insulation textures and maybe a few Mexican workers into the scenery? :)
