Hello All,

A few years ago we talked about this but it never happened. Is it possible to make this happen in 2017 or 2018? The idea is that we lay out a route of flight touring the lower 48 states. The legs would be published and individuals would be able to join one, all or as many legs as they wanted to fly. By putting a really large group together for certain key legs we could use media to bring attention to canard aircraft and increase our numbers. To make up for weather delays we could have key cities that take up a couple of days. For example New Orleans. I doubt if many of you (I'm including myself) would be legal to fly the next morning after a night on Bourbon Street for example.
Each leg would have a team leader to brief the group on the route, TFR's, and any other pertinent information. General public should be allowed to meet the group and see the airplanes close up. What would it be like to see a group of 100 canards fly into a place? How could we make this happen and is there enough interest to do it?
