Old Farts
Homestead (X51) Invite

for Thursday, January 20th, 2022… 

Old Farts…

We are flying to the southeast corner of our realm on Thursday, January 20th, 2022. We have been trying to make this visit for some time. Seems either weather, or more recently, Covid fears… have forced cancellations. I’ve checked forecasts for south Florida on Thursday. In a word, it is “Wow!” Near perfect conditions for an Old Farts gathering! 

The food truck, Bonjour! Umani, is scheduled to be on site from 8:00 until 4:00 p.m. I have attached a link to Bonjour Umani’s website at the bottom of this post. That means we can spread out our arrivals throughout the day. I will plan to be there relatively early, but my route is over 100 nm… in one of my slow antiques. 

I haven’t met our host, Yogini Modi… but she has been delightful to work with! I’m looking forward to this visit. Yogini has provided some tips on flying in and out of X51. They are attached as a boxed text. Please read them, and be prepared. Sounds like Homestead can be a little busy at times. 

Hope to see you there!!! 

Keep the Shiny Side Up!

Hello Roger!

Thank you for choosing Homestead Executive Jet Center as your HOST FBO.

X51 has three runways- Two asphalt and one Grass runway.10-28 is parallel to grass runway. Grass runway is used by Gliders and paramotors. The South East corner of Airport has skydive operations and X51 has considerable flight training activity, so I would suggest the following… 

1- Do not Overfly the airport, rather stay North or west of the airport to avoid skydivers.
2- On departure leg, climb to 700 ft and then turn crosswind.
3- Runway 10 and 28 has a RNAV approach so please be aware of Instrument approach users while being in traffic pattern.

HEJC is located at the west end of the airport, at the Junction of Runway 10 and 18. You will be able to point Tiki hut from the taxiways. Our Staff will be guiding you for the parking. Bon Jour Umami is located at the end of Parking lot of HEJC and  by the lake. 

Here are a few pictures of FBO and Bon Jour Umami Inc. 
Let me know if you need anything else.

Blue skies,

Yogini Modi
