Cardinal Flyers Online Migrates South

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Joe Ruck (Native Floridian) recently returned home from Los Angeles back to the Sunshine State.  The highlight of the trip was an evening with the folks from Cardinal Flyers Online (CFO), which is a group of Cessna Cardinal owners and pilots approximately 3,500 members strong.  The evening event was held at the home of a CFO member in Winter Haven, Florida.  This same CFO member has hosted this annual event for the past several years.  This year approximately 50 Cardinal owners attended.

CFO typically gathers at Lakeland each spring for Sun N Fun, then Oshkosh, Wisconsin the last week of July, and a Cardinal fly-in somewhere in the USA each year.  Past fly-ins have included destinations such as Santa Maria, California (Wine Country), Death Valley, Bowling Green, Kentucky (Corvette Museum), Williamsport, PA (Lycoming factory), and Wichita, KS to visit the Cessna factory and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Cessna Cardinal.

CFO fly-ins began in 1999 and in 2000 they became an official organization which you can join for a $34 per year membership.

CFO is managed by Keith and Debbie Peterson.  Paul Milner runs the CFO digest.  CFO membership information can be obtained by contacting Debbie Peterson at
