Fly in or Drive in, we welcome you to share your favorite chili recipe or covered dish (optional, not mandatory). This annual event attracts local town folk and, if weather permits, a large contingent of interesting flying machines. Festivities begin around 10 AM and go until 2 PM. Renew old friendships and discover what everybody’s been working on all winter. General Public Invited! No Admission or Parking charge. The Airport, Air Museum & hangars are open. Massey is family friendly and handicap accessible (on grass). Antique and Show cars are invited for non-judged display (If you have a motorcycle, vintage car or hot rod, come early, park up front around the DC-3 for everyone to see & admire). We got rained out last year so we are overdue for good weather. Last December at the Open Hangar Fly-In, sunny skies attracted 111 guest planes – that’s more like it!
Pilots: As always, keep an eye out for no-radio aircraft. Winds permitting, Runway 02 is the preferred arrival approach on event days, if not we have widened the west side Back Taxi lane. Check for VIP TFRs. We do have a Cut-Out from the south if there is a TFR. No Rain Date.
