The best day(s) for me is Friday or Saturday. I might be able to do Thursday if push comes to shove but that would mean having to take a day off work. For the other pilot I would say use KUXL (Southland Field) which is just west of Lake Charles. This is a really nice airport that I have used in the past. The FBO is Southland aviation.
For Alabama there are 2 airports we can use. KEET (Shelby county) which I have been to a long time ago but don't think much has changed. The other airport is 02A (Chilton county) which I have not been to. If you go to www.airnav.com
and click on airports and put in the identifier (KEET or 02A) you can get information on these airports and where they are located. Not sure where you are located so I will let you choose the airport that is easiest for you.
As for the crate if the animal rides good in a car then they will be fine in the plane so I have no requirements. Just a leash and collar so that we can walk the dog before the flight. If they don't ride good in a car then a kennel should be added. As well any paperwork you have would need to be included as well. I would recommend that you do not feed the dog the morning of the flight as flying can some times upset their stomach.
You can reach me at email@example.com
or on my mobile (281-352-7312). Please pass this along to the other pilot as well so that we can coordinate if needed.
