22nd Annual Dave Purdin Fly-In

The information below is from last year. I will update this as we get more information for 2021.



7/30/2020 Update

Many of you have inquired about the fly-in being held this year, YES it is still going on. Due to other events scheduled on the field, we are permitted to arrive at the field Thursday morning and need to be off the field on Monday night.

With the covid virus interrupting so many schedules combined with the cost to put this event on we are trying to get an accurate count on how many are planning to attend. If you will please comment your name to let’s us know that you are coming it will help us to plan. The cost will be $40 per pilot when pre-registered or $50 on the day of the event and camping is free.

Pre-registration is available with Facebook pay or google pay.
