COPPERSTATE Fly-In is Moving!

COPPERSTATE Fly-In, Inc., which hosts the third-largest aircraft fly-in in the U.S., has announced that it will hold its next event at the Mesa, AZ Falcon Field (FFZ) Airport on Friday & Saturday, October 28-29, 2016.
The event, which is open to the general public, attracts recreational & general aviation enthusiasts from across the southwest United States. In 2015, approximately 500 aircraft were on display from 20 states, including ultralights, gyrocopters, home-built aircraft, antiques and warbirds. In addition to aircraft displays, the Copperstate Fly-In features aircraft awards, aviation business information booths, educational workshops for pilots, and youth activities. A portion of event proceeds fund scholarships for youth aviation programs.

“The COPPERSTATE Fly-In is a wonderful addition to the City of Mesa and Falcon Field!” District 5 City Councilmember David Luna said. “This is a mutually beneficial partnership that will help increase regional and national awareness about what Falcon Field has to offer while helping the Copperstate Fly-in expand its offerings to pilots and aviation enthusiasts.”
“We at Falcon Field look forward to hosting this fly-in that is so popular with pilots and the general public,” Corinne Nystrom, Airport Director said. “Our facilities are a perfect fit for Copperstate’s activities and because of the wide variety of aviation services the airport offers. This event has something for everyone, whether you are a pilot, a fan of aviation, or a family planning a weekend outing!”
