The High Desert Fly-In is back! The HDFI Committee will host the 2022 event on Saturday, September 17, from 8 am to 12 noon at the Winslow-Lindbergh Regional Airport. This free annual event features airplanes, history, food, and more!
As in years past, the High Desert Fly-In will include free admission to all and a Cowboy Breakfast by the Winslow Rotary Club from 8 to 10 am for $6 a person. Visiting pilots will enjoy complimentary breakfast, gift bags, and fuel discounts.
Attendees will be allowed on the tarmac to view general aviation, special-use, and historical aircraft. Young people will once again be offered complimentary flights courtesy of the Flagstaff EAA on a first-come/first-served basis from 8 to 11 am (waiver required).
Inside the hangar, the Flying Fun Kids Area will feature hands-on activities from the Winslow Public Library and an interactive World Travel Map. The Flying Through History Area will include the Old Trails Museum’s Flying through History: The Winslow-Lindbergh Regional Airport and The Swamp Ghost and World War II exhibits. Historian Erik Berg will be on hand to talk with attendees about early aviation in the Southwest.
The featured charity will once again be the Fly-In Angels for Winslow Animal Control. Attendees can bring donations of pet food to the event for donation to the shelter. Wiseman Aviation will also donate a 50-pound bag of dog food for every pilot that attends!
