The Fly-in is planned for the 7-9 October 2022 weekend with fun flying over beautiful Lake Logan Martin in central Alabama just east of Birmingham. The weather is very nice this time of the year. Our goal is to eventually build this into a major east coast Formation/Warbird annual event. This will be our second year to incorporate warbird flying into the schedule. We will not have a wavier but most of the local pilots will avoid flying that weekend to support our operation. We will issue a NOTAM advising a high volume of formation flying at the airport. On Saturday, 8 October at 12:00 – 13:00 we will showcase the event with a formation flyby program. Pell City / St Clair County KPLR is a great venue. Last year’s event was a great success and the local social media exploded with positive commentary as most had never seen any warbird formation flying.
We have great sponsorship and support and there will be no landing fee again this year. The local management is doing everything it can to support the warbird pilots who attend and want to ensure they come back every year! We have arranged the following:
We have arranged discounted fuel, rental cars (Which will be delivered to our Ops Hanger) and discounted hotel rooms for the weekend. (10 min from airport) We are requesting that you provide us with your intent to attend as soon as possible so we can make sure we have enough food and drink for everyone.
