The Weekender: Planes, Trains, And A Fly-In Market


The Weekender found some early spring-cleaning opportunities on SocialFlight, whether it’s clearing out the hangar or knocking the rust off from the winter. On Saturday, Plant City Airport in Florida will host Planes, Trains & Automobiles, with numerous displays including airplanes, helicopters, RC planes, model trains, vintage cars, police and fire department demonstrations, flight simulators and Young Eagles flights. Also Saturday, Fremont Airport in Ohio will host a ground school and chili lunch, with $5 contributions going to the restoration of the Lulu Belle DC-3, a D-Day veteran. Pilots who are due for a flight review can get their ground instruction at the event at no charge.

Join Canadian Owners and Pilots Association Flight 169 for Mo’s Annual Fly-in on the Quebec side, one mile west of the Ottawa VOR. Runway 16/34 is 3500 feet long and will be plowed; ski landing is recommended for those flying in. For those no longer looking for snow, Eagle Roost Airpark in Arizona will host an aviation fly-market/fly-in Saturday, inviting all to buy or sell aviation items from avionics to aircraft. Sellers can bring their own tables and chairs for setup. For more on this weekend’s events, visit SocialFlight.
