Here's some brief instructions for attending the AVGeekFeast .
1. When you arrive at Claim Jumper restaurant, be sure to inform the restaurant staff that you're with the aviation party. They'll take you to the back part of the restaurant to eat. Feel free if you're just by yourself to join a table that just has one other, or a table of three. We're all pretty friendly.
2. Myself(Isaac Alexander), will be scarfing down my food as quickly as possible, and then I'll be going from table to table to visit everyone that's attending. Towards the end of the feast, I plan to make a few words to everyone there. 
3. Please after we're there at the restaurant to thank the staff there. They're going out of their way to make sure we have a great time there.

The AVGeekFeast is the new "spiritual" successor to the AVGeek Breakfast. It's a chance to get re-energized up for the evening with good food and great company. Nothing better to end the weekend festivities then to share a meal with fellow aviation enthusiasts from across the globe. It's fantastic to know that the love of aviation is truly global.

For the AVGeekFeast, please provide me with a RSVP by Tueday Sep 26th if you plan to attend and how many are in your party. It’s open to anyone attending Aviation Geek Fest as well as Aviation Geeks who aren't. I want to give the restaurant as much heads up as possible as to how many people plan to be there. I expect it to increase again this year. RSVP by contacting me via email at with the subject line AVGeekFeast or by Twitter at @JetCityStar. Here's a list listed alphabetically by last name of who I have so far as of September 26th. I will update this page with new names attending as I receive them.

*****Updated list as of April 7th*****

Please note. I have six people reserved. If you wish to join us though, I cannot guarantee you'll have space at the restaurant by us. When you come to the restaurant, mention my name(Isaac) or the Aviation party. Please show up as close to 5 pm as possible!

These are aerospace companies that have not yet chosen to use Twitter as a communication tool for their company and products. We're hoping by the 2018 Farnborough International Air Show all the companies below will join the other companies that have successfully used Twitter to drive customers to their products. We've have been publishing this list of companies annually for 5 years now. 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016.  Perhaps more soon will follow.
