Second Annual Aeronca Fly-in Set For Flabob
The Aeronca Aviators Club will stage their second annual Southwest Fly-In at Flabob Airport on May 18-20.

“Last year’s event had over 25 Aeroncas, so we are optimistic about attendance this year,” said organizer Jim Spee. “It’s going to be a low key event and fun for everyone.” Initial arrivals are invited to an informal dinner on the evening of Friday, May 18. On Saturday, the Flabob Express, a DC-3 group, will sponsor a pancake breakfast.
Flabob has their monthly Open Hangar and Historic Display on that Saturday as well. Participants will have a round table discussion on Aeronca ownership and maintenance at the EAA Chapter 1 headquarters, followed by box lunches. Dinner that evening in the Chapter One facility will feature barbecue from Famous Dave’s. A number of awards for the best post-war, best pre-war, furthest flown, and best non-Aeronca aircraft will be presented. After breakfast at the Flabob Cafe on Sunday morning, weather permitting, the Aeroncas will depart for home after another successful fly-in.
