Curtiss Seaplane Homecoming
Curtiss Seaplane Homecoming. Hammondsport, NY
Please join us in Hammondsport, NY (south end of Keuka Lake) September 13th, 2014 for a
fly-in to celebrate Glenn Curtiss and the birthplace of the flying boat.
Friday-no planned activities, but the town docks and amphib ramp are available.
Saturday-local flying, a seaplane parade around Keuka for those interested, lakeside
displays of current restoration shop projects, and a Sat. night party at the Curtiss
Museum. Takeoff and landing contests are a possibility.
The Glenn H. Curtiss museum is open all weekend. We have many airplanes, including
replicas of the 1914 Curtiss America, the 1911 A-1, and the 1912 Model E; all flown by
the museum in recent years.
Use 123.45. Use caution at the docks. If you pull in nose first; there is no
"facing", or break wall, on the boardwalk that runs in front of the town docks.
Be careful not to let your floats get under the boardwalk. If the wind is out of the
north, making the docks unmanageable; there is a good beach at the county park on the
Amphibs may taxi up the ramp just west of the town docks.
There is a small grass strip about 1 mile southwest of town, just west of Rt. 54. Kolo
field, uncharted. Try on 123.45 to get a ride, or call the museum. Penn Yan (KPEO)
airport is a 30 minute drive.
