Land of Enchantment Fly-In

August 25

What’s a Fly-In?

Similar to a car show, aircraft fly in to be judged, while spectators get to see a gathering of amateur-built, antique and other unique aircraft — and meet their pilots, builders, and restorers!  Expected highlights include the Chile Flight (formation flying team), helicopters, gliders, ultralights, and static displays of remote-controlled aircraft.

What’s there to do?

  • Come early to see aircraft as they arrive and catch the 8AM Opening Ceremony and flag raising
  • Browse the Exhibit Hall with aviation businesses, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations.  Learn about aviation education, careers, technology, fun!
  • Enjoy EAA 179’s FREE pancake breakfast and/or burger lunch, donations accepted
  • Try riveting at the Builders’ Corner!  3D Printing!  Talk to builders!
  • Engage the kids in the Youth Aviators Center
  • Attend any of 3 pilot safety seminars!     2017 schedule 
  • Shop at EAA 179′s Fly Mart and buy used aviation treasures
  • Stroll the ramp of aircraft, military vehicles, and cars.  See three OSH 2017 Award winners!
