Places to Fly – East: Mo’s 30th Fly-In


Maurice Prud’homme is again hosting his annual fly-in on the foreshore of the Ottawa River this coming Saturday, February 23. It is located one mile west from the Ottawa VOR; the exact coordinates are 42° 26’ 57” N and 75° 55’ 48” W. Co-hosting the event is COPA Flight 169 Ottawa-Gatineau.

The same weather conditions that prevented wheeled planes from landing at Montebello and the Sainte-Anne-du-Lac fly-ins have led the organizers to cancel plans to prepare the runway surface at Mo’s as well, so it’s ski-equipped planes only (and helicopters).

Air frequency to use is 123.3 and ground is 122.75. More information is available by calling 819-682-5273.
