#TheAviators wear your goggles and gather 15 minutes prior to WheelsUp time if possible, 

Your schedules permitting, please come join-in the Twitter flying fun all you available and willing #TheAviators.

#TheAviators with adventure ideas that want to follow through and lead that adventure – here is the Adventure Page at the club website. 

 TWITTER TIPS – How to Twitter fly with #TheAviators 

 Have you gotten goggles to come fly #TheAviators?  This is the first step.   Click on this link to the club website, it will open for you in a new window or tab:  How To Get Goggles and Join #TheAviators 

Here are some tips designed to help you Twitter fly #TheAviators.

On  Adventure Flight Day:

25 OCT is a one flight only Mini-Adventure day. 

Everyone gets signed into Twitter on their devices or computers.

Wear your goggles. (Use them as your avatar).

Use #TheAviators in all your tweets so you can see other and others can see you by following along with that hash tag.   If you have a protected tweets locked account and want to be seen in the hash tag stream during the mission, please go to your profile page, click on the gear wheel icon and go to settings to unlock, save the changes and refresh the page.   After the mission, you can go to the same place to lock back up again.  This is your personal decision to make.

Bring up #TheAviators hash tag page in direct (regular) twitter by placing #TheAviators into Twitter’s search feature (the place with the magnifying glass symbol). When that page comes up you click on All (so all tweets are shown).

#TheAviators Hash Tag Page All Tweets as shown on direct Twitter

You can then follow and participate in the entire flight.

Applications like TweetDeck allow you to bring up #TheAviators hash tag and add it as a column to follow.  TweetDeck like applications also allows bringing up a user column like the Twitter addie (address) of your Flight Team Leader.   One can then see all  #TheAviators plus keep close track on the Flight Team Leader’s tweets.

IF #TheAviators hash tag runs faster than you are comfortable with:  switch to @RileyKatermans tweet page for the adventure tweets.  

Every individual must find their own way with their own technology devices.

The entire flight will last for one hour.  #TheAviators often gather up to meet and greet  fifteen minutes prior to scheduled flight time. Early, on time, even a little late, it is OK to come and fly.

BRAND NEW AVIATORS – the two most important things besides your wonderful enthusiasm is  (1)  to have your call sign (personal flight name).  Here’s the chart to pick one out – if you have not done so already and (2) use #TheAviators in all your tweets when flying. All #TheAviators are welcome to Twitter fly missions. ( YOU DO NOT NEED YOUR BASIC FLIGHT SCHOOL LICENSE to come fly and join in the fun!)

Flight name

#TheAviators  Adventures held on Twitter are step-by-step shown with pictures from your Flight Team Leader.

 During any Adventure Flight – IF #TheAviators hash tag is moving too fast for you to follow, it is fine if you want to switch over to your Flight Team Leader’s tweet page to follow along.

Small or mini-adventures no flying certificates are issued.   An Adventure certificate is  given for flying by @ToddyFur for the large adventures.  

Thank you for coming to fly #TheAviators Adventures.  We all learn many new things and enjoy the camaraderie and fun together.

DECEMBER 20 – “FESTIVE FLIGHT” two fights led by @ToddyFur – ah to the “Festive” places of the Holiday Season.

Festive Flight

Captain Toddy Furrington @ToddyFur was goggled to #TheAviators Spring of 2013 and became one of #TheAviators leadership team in Summer of 2013.   His participation and leadership  is priceless to #TheAviators as he does the majority of graphics work (posters, new members goggling) – consultation and work for other flyers who wish to do an adventure and a huge volume of behind the scenes planning  hours and administrative work all very key and vital to the benefit of #TheAviators.

DECEMBER 6 – “NORTHERN LIGHTS”  two flights led by @OllyTed to the sights of Finland including those Northern Lights.

JULY 27 and AUGUST 3 – SCOTLAND (HIGHLANDS) led by @MungoFuzzy  – Originally intended on July 27  to be a one flight small mini-adventure experience for #TheAviators to fly and demonstrate how any member may put an adventure together – it was far too popular a first flight with abundant scenery, places, narratives and even one stop to design and loom one’s own Tartan.  #TheAviators in the Southern Hemisphere then specifically requested to have a flight (AUGUST 3)  in their time zones which also worked out beautifully for those of the United Kingdom and Central Europe who had not been able to fly the JULY 27 date.  We believe we remember hearing the descriptive words “smashing adventure” several times.  Intended as a demonstration flight,  no certificates were issued but an amazing amount of fun was had by all #TheAviators who had the opportunity to fly July 27 and August 3.

@MungoFuzzy’s Small Adventure #TheAviators

#TheAviators  Mungo @MungoFuzzy gave a delightful day brightening Sunday small mini-adventure flight mission on Twitter,  May 18.  Adventures are something individual flyers are always welcome to do and as Mungo himself expressed,  “I hope other flyers will share places they know well too.”

If any #TheAviators would like to do an adventure be it large, small or mini and needs a consult or mentor, we usually look to @ToddyFur.  The large adventure ideas will need a specific club date set.  It is highly recommended to include Toddy in those plans and date scheduling,  whereas a small or mini-adventure can be done on whatever schedule  the presenter has in mind.

We are blog transcribing just the beginning of Mungo’s small mini-adventure presentation here and thank Mungo for reminding us that Adventure Missions, leading and flying them are always open to individual #TheAviators.   If you would like to see Mungo’s entire adventure presentation, we recommend you go to his profile page @MungoFuzzy  as soon as possible and review it there.
