The AOPA Fly-in at the Buckeye Air Fair will offer attendees the ultimate experience of quality aviation content that you are used to seeing at an AOPA fly-in with the fun and entertainment of an Air Fair. During this 3-day event, experience world class educational content, our large indoor Exhibit Hall with the latest new tech, gear, and services. Stroll the robust aircraft display or listen to a seminar in one of our three seminar venues (don’t forget the Pilot Town Hall with Mark Baker on Saturday!). When you are done with that, don’t forget to catch the Air Show on Saturday and Sunday, as well as all the Air Fair vendors on site.
Be sure to bring the entire family! Buckeye Air Fair will have lots of activities for kids to do at the Buckeye Aviation Academy area including the Arizona SciTech area (free) and the Kids Zone.
