From music to rodeo, car shows to airshows, and Wild West excursions to a metropolitan vibe, our three locations will have something for everyone. AOPA staff have worked for months identifying, selecting, and finalizing this year’s fly-ins.
Drum roll, please. On May 29 and 30, join AOPA in San Marcos, Texas (HYI), for a return event that looks nothing like it did the first time around, when we hosted our first regional fly-in there in 2014. The fly-in will be co-located with an exciting music festival/car show/airshow called Go Wheels Up, Texas! On June 19 and 20 come to Casper, Wyoming (CPR), a place to savor the rich Western heritage of these United States. We’ll be there during the College National Finals Rodeo so this event will be a total immersion in Western culture. September 11 and 12 we will host the fly-in in upstate New York in the energetic city of Rochester (ROC). This international airport will welcome us little guys with waived fees and open arms.
“This year’s AOPA Fly-Ins will take us into two new states in parts of the country we’ve not yet visited with exciting opportunities to explore their unique strengths,” said Chris Eads, AOPA senior director of Outreach and Events. “And, we will also revisit the roots of our regional fly-in program by returning to our very first location in 2014. We are looking forward to a fun year with lots of new flying adventures.”
