I am definitely in (with Mark if he can still meet me) to pick up at OXC or a nearby airport and deliver the JRT to New Bedford. I am night current. I have done many winter (and spring, fall and summer flights) without a hitch and many pilots are not IFR rated. It is not a requirement and I think we'll be fine. Charlie, I appreciate that concern, but it hasn't stopped many flights from successfully completing and if you're willing to be an IFR back up just in case, that would be a generous offer and greatly appreciated!
If there are a couple of legs that can meet up and get the JRT to Mark, then I suspect we have a flight to get this pup home,
Hi Mark, I'm based at KTAN. I totally agree with you about icing. But it's only a concern as you know, if there's freezing rain and/or the freezing level is too low to fly it safely. The forecast weekend temps. so far appear not to be a factor.

Hello Robin, just got your text today, my recommendations: Leg #1: GSO to OFP/XSA Leg #2: OFP/XSA to MIV Leg #3: per the other pilots who have responded decisions Leg #4: per the other piltos who have responded decisions
Unfortunately, Zack can't go, as the airplane is booked. I have students all day Saturday and Sunday, so I'm a little booked right now. Let's keep asking to see what we get.

Thank you Mark - Did something change that i am not aware of? Charlie has helped me to coordinate this transport so Charlie is the one meeting you, and taking Cheer home to Massachusetts. While I appreciate Margery's offer to help, I don't want to cut Charlie out of this transport since he has done so much already.
