23APR22 / 2000Z - Paradise Flyout @ KSRQ [12 GATES LEFT]

Sarasota/Bradenton International Flyout!

Home of the continental USA's best beach, Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport will (hopefully) be jam-packed for my first ever flyout! Sarasota is a city about 60 miles south of Tampa and is served by many airlines, predominantly Southwest and Allegiant. SRQ also has a large General Aviation presence, especially with private jets.
Airport Details
KSRQ has 2 runways - 14/32 and 4/22. Almost all aircraft operations are handled on runway 14/32, while runway the smaller 4/22 is used mostly with general aviation, and rarely used with commercial (even when winds are favorable).
Sarasota's airport interestingly has the ICAO code KSRQ - but the roots of the seemingly random "Q" in the code are in the field's past military operation. Before IATA and ICAO codes, Sarasota/Bradenton operated under RS, then switched to SSO when 3 letters were needed for all codes. In WW2, the base's code switched to SRQ because SSO was too close to SOS and they wanted to avoid confusion.
What's unique about this flyout?
Sarasota/Bradenton has a strong General Aviation presence and there are many gates available to fly pattern work in and around KSRQ during the event for those who love flying smaller crafts or need landings for Grade 4!

Standby Gates

Signing up standby does NOT guarantee attendance! as many people cancel right before events, anyone who signs up standby will be allowed to fill the gaps! This is perfect for those who are unsure if they can make the event or anyone interested in signing up after all gates are occupied. Standby is first come first serve, so whoever is standby 1 will have their choice over standby 2, etc. 1 day before the event starts, a poll will be sent out to all signed up for a gate (not standby) asking to confirm attendance. 3 hours before the event starts, anyone who answered no (can not attend) to the poll or didn’t answer the poll at all will be removed and all standby sign-ups will have the opportunity to take a gate. order of signup (standby 1, standby 2, standby 3, etc.) will decide who gets what!

I am so sorry - i just realized I ignored the second half of your question! While I think a member of your VA would be best suited to answer, It would be totally fine if your callsign was whatever it normally is with your VA especially considering that you chose an American airlines routes and your with AAVA. Let me know if you have any more questions!

I must say the Avelo route is appealing, however this event is probably to early in the day for me to make it.

Hi! thanks for the interest. I do realize this time would be a bit early for some, especially those on the USA’s west coast. I was thinking after I posted the event about moving the event later to 1600z (12pm east coast, 9am west coast) but didn’t want to do that unless a situation like this one arose. if @ORD777flyer, @AviatorRyan, and @CaptainE are all able to make 1600Z, id be more than happy to change that to accommodate if that works for you. Since only 3 others have signed up as long as its good with them it really isn’t a big deal, in hindsight I probably should have originated with a better time anyways. Thanks for your interest!

Is there a chance we could possibly make it later? I’m so sorry for asking, but I have a hockey game at 12 pm CST I believe and I’d love to make it.

sure! that entire day I am completely booked so whatever works for everyone else works for me. Let me know what time would be best for you and we can try to work something out! If this gets too complicated I may just leave it at 1400Z though although i would hate for @AIDAN101 to miss my event

@Deltadev13 you are officially added! @ORD777flyer, @AviatorRyan, and @CaptainE I changed the time to 2000Z as it seems nobody had any conflicts. @AIDAN101 if this time works for you I’d be more than happy to put your down for the Avelo route!


I’ll take this one please!

consider it done! see you soon 👋
