The High Desert Fly-In is back! The HDFI Committee will host this annual event on Saturday, September 17, from 8 am to 12 noon at the Winslow-Lindbergh Regional Airport.
As always, the Fly-In will include free admission to all and a Cowboy Breakfast from 8 to 10 am for $6 a person.
General aviation, special-use, and historical aircraft will fly in and be available for public viewing on the tarmac. Complimentary flights for young people will once again be offered courtesy of the Flagstaff EAA on a first-come/first-served basis from 8 to 11 am (waiver required).
In the hangar, the Winslow Public Library will provide hands-on activities in the Flying Fun Kids Area. The Old Trails Museum will host exhibits and displays of historical artifacts related to regional aviation in the Flying Through History Area.
Once again, the featured charity will be the Fly-In Angels for Winslow Animal Control. Attendees can bring donations of cash or pet food to the Fly-In, where they’ll receive a WAC Adoption Coupon. Wiseman Aviation will also donate a portion of every fuel sale to the cause.
The High Desert Fly-In is a nonprofit partnership between Wiseman Aviation, the City of Winslow, and Winslow’s Airport Commission, Chamber of Commerce, Historic Preservation Commission, Public Library, Rotary Club, and Old Trails Museum. The committee works throughout the year planning this exciting annual event and welcomes participation by local individuals and organizations.
