  • Please request and take note of the NOTAMS posted for the event from a Flight Service Briefer.
     

  • Saturday and Sunday:
    • Arrive early (0700-0900) to avoid congestion, especially on Saturday.
    • Airport closes at noon and remains closed until 5 PM.
    • Bring your own tie-downs.  You will be directed to the transient parking area.  (see diagram below). After shutting down on a hard ramp your aircraft will be parked on grass. There are no tie-downs available so you will need something that will work in grass.
    • You will ride a shuttle bus directly to and from the event and admission will be collected on board.

 

 

 

 

 

 
  • Follow all ATIS instructions carefully.  It is advisable to copy these pages and also to review the airport layout diagram to become familiar with runway, taxiway and event parking diagrams.
     

  • In all probability you will be landing on runway 31.  Land so as to make a smooth deceleration to turn left onto taxiway “F”.  Parking will be straight ahead on the “west” ramp.   (See Airport Diagram below.)
     

  • If at all possible after landing, avoid a long slow taxi down runway 31 to turn off onto taxiway “F” as it can really destroy the orderly flow of traffic.
     

  • Keep informed.  Things change, especially with current security concerns etc.  
     
  • See Show Tips for more information to help you enjoy the show.
