I too am having that internal debate to do the same with my GlaStar, with the biggest worry being hail. Homebuilt camping is beginning to look very empty around here! As a reminder, the definition of a severe thunderstorm is, “a thunderstorm that produces one inch hail or larger in diameter and/or winds equal or exceed 58 miles an hour.” Other pilots are, instead of leaving, taking measures to install canopy and wing covers.
On the flip side, arrivals are still flowing in, but not quite as fast as the departures seem to be flowing out. (This is actually not unusual for a Wednesday.) I haven’t heard word on what will happen with the night airshow. (Late note: The airshow was canceled.) Stay tuned, AirVenture!
