What’s a Fly-In?

Similar to a car  show, aircraft fly in to be judged, while spectators get to see a gathering of amateur built, antique and other unique aircraft — and meet their pilots, builders, and restorers!  Expected highlights include the Chile Flight (formation flying team), helicopters, gliders, ultralights, and static displays of remote controlled aircraft.

What’s there to do?

  • Come early to see aircraft as they arrive and catch the 8AM Opening Ceremony and flag raising
  • Browse the Exhibit Hall with aviation businesses, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations.
  • Learn about aviation education, careers, technology,  in the Exhibit Hall and SEMINARS!
  • Enjoy EAA 179’s  pancake breakfast and lunch on site!
  • Try riveting at the Builders’ Corner!  3D Printing!  Talk to builders!
  • Engage the kids in the Youth Aviators Center
  • PILOTS!  Attend SEMINARS about flying New Mexico; all three earn WINGS credits!
  • Shop at EAA 179′s Fly Mart and buy used aviation treasures
