For those flying in, there will be people at the airpark waiting to greet you and show you where to park. There is no tie down fee for planes visiting for the weekend event. Restrooms are located in the pilots lounge and the access code is 1186. Once your aircraft is secured, please sign in at the flight school and pick up your welcome package. We will be happy to direct you to your accommodations.

For those driving in, you can park at your hotel and enjoy a short stroll. All lodgings are within close proximity to the airpark. See map for directions. Please sign in at the flight school and pick up your welcome package. If you are attending the BBQ you can sign in at the same time.

Local flying friends, please use the public parking outside the airpark gate and walk in to the flight school. The space around the flight school will be reserved for aircraft and mingling.
