The day kicks off at 8:00AM with a pancake breakfast presented by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Throughout the day the public will be able to wander among an array of classic and home-built aircraft and talk with pilots and builders.
Admission is free, and breakfast, lunch and desserts will be available for purchase.
Come enjoy free parking at the National Guard Armory on Brookside Blvd, with free shuttles running continuously to and from Airport Central.
Among the exhibits will be the massive helicopters used by ODF and the USFS for fighting wildfire in Oregon. And, all will enjoy learning about the Med-Evac operations centered at the airport. There will be low level fly-bys of iconic aircraft and aerobatic flight by the Rogue Valley Flyers R/C club. At mid-day the skies will fill with hang-gliders arriving from their jump site atop Mt. Walker. There will be classic cars on display for all to see, and we will have the West Coast Ravens demonstrating formation flying.
Again, this year offers special focus on students and parents who are beginning to study future career directions. Aviation businesses are expecting many job vacancies over the next decade as military veterans begin to retire from the industry. The opportunities for young people will abound.
