FREDERICK, Md., Feb. 9, 2024—The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is eager to spread the joy of aviation at the Buckeye Air Fair from February 16 to 18 in Buckeye, Arizona.

The three-day event will have aircraft and avionics on display, exhibit halls full of vendors, and air shows on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Attendees will also have a chance to participate in seminars on a variety of educational and engaging aviation topics, including a Pilot Town Hall hosted by AOPA President Mark Baker.

The 2023 AOPA Sweepstakes Cessna 170 will make its last appearance at the Buckeye Air Fair and the new 2024 AOPA Sweepstakes aircraft will also be unveiled.

“We can’t wait to join forces again with our friends in Buckeye to do what we both do best—deliver a first-class aviation experience at one of the nation’s best airshows,” said Elizabeth O’Connell, AOPA Director of Outreach and Events. “The Buckeye Air Fair has proven to be one of our best experiences and this year will be no different.”

AOPA members will also have exclusive access to the Members Only AOPA Flightline Chalet—a section with partner giveaways, food and beverage, and meet and greet opportunities with AOPA leadership and aviation influencers.

The Flightline Chalet will also have prime views for the event’s airshows, while also hosting the AOPA Welcome Reception Sponsored by uAvionix and AMBA on Friday and the AOPA 85th Anniversary Party Presented by Aero-Space Reports on Saturday.

The full event schedule can be found here.

Registration for the event is still open, although aircraft camping is full and no longer available.
