    Lexington, KY   Bluegrass Airport   (LEX)  2 hrs 36 min. 121 mi W

    Pikeville hopes to get two (three maybe) vans to come and pick up people from the airport, so
    hopefully everyone flying will come to no more than two different airports.
    We would like to be able to leave the airport(s) about 3:00 P.M. to travel back to Pikeville, so if you could get flights in before 3:00 P.M would be great.
