Hi,

This is my first year in doing the event and I have a question.
3. Fly General Aviation flight FROM where you landed in #2, TO your HOME airport*

Is it allowed to land en-route to take on fuel?
I want to "FROM where you landed in #2" depart FAOR too FACT (home base) , the distance is 688nm.
My GA Commander 114 has a range of 619nm, So I want to land at FAKM to take on fuel.

If yes, do I file a flight FAOR - FAKM - FACT?

Thanks,
Jannie

So leg #3 would be filed as FAOR - FACT. Put in your flight comments that you landed @ FAKM for refueling. Happy Holidays!

Just a friendly reminder to use the re-fueling stop in myAAS2 at FAKM instead of flight complete.

Might be a stupid and noob question, but want to make sure I am doing stuff correct.
After completing the "home for the holidays event", can I continue on from my home airport and fly, or do I have to hang at my home airport till after 31 Dec?
