[22 Sep 2020 08-11pm ET] Fly-in: The Maine Event

Recommended Posts



Set the parking brake on the airliner and knock the cobwebs off your favorite general aviation aircraft! The General Aviation Fly-In visits locales across the country that are famous for their scenery and general aviation influence. While anything from a single engine Cessna to a regional jet is welcome in this event, ‘low and slow’ offers the best opportunity to experience the scenery.

During this GA Fly-In event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller airports with overlying radar controllers to provide VFR Flight Following and IFR services. Fly VFR closed traffic, practice instrument approaches, or fly VFR or IFR between the featured airports: the choice is yours.

The event features the controlled airports in Maine: Bangor (KBGR) and Portland (KPWM). It’s also a great time to try out one of our WINGS flights. Remember, many of the flights have published Alternate Airports, allowing you to earn your BVA pilot ratings at event airports!

And special recognition to anyone who does the RNAV (GPS) RWY 3 approach to minimums at good old KOWK... Virtual beer will be served at my old virtual hangar there afterwards.
