Flying Into Everett

Sun Sep 02, 2007 7:23 am

Hey guys,

I am planning on going down to do the Boeing Tour in Everett on Monday. Has anyone every flown into Everett for the tour and can suggest good places to park a little single for a few hours?
Keep the shinny side up!

Driven there but have not flown in.

Seems like the FBO and transient ramp is near midfield (north-south) on the east side. Boeing plant is about a mile north of there.

There is restoration work going on near where you will park. I've seen a very early B-727 and maybe a Comet parked there.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

I'm pretty sure you're referring to the Museum of Flight restoration center, in which case, the B727 is airframe #1...doesn't get much earlier than that!

It'd be pretty cool if Boeing was able to spare a small amount of ramp space for people flying in for their factory tour...could be a good marketing tool!

I've heard of Regal Air which is an FBO at PAE. They are pretty nice. However the future of flight center which you need to go to if you want to go on the tour is on the other side of the airport and might require a taxi to get to. PAE is a huge complex. Boeing has the north end of the airport including the future of fligh center, and all other operations are on the south side.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
