September 21, 2019 at Double Eagle II Airport
Thanks to all who made it a fabulous day!
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.

- Come early to see aircraft as they arrive and catch the 8AM Opening Ceremony and flag raising
