Front Range Air Show Added To Expanded RMRFI
November 27, 2006 — This year's Rocky Mountain EAA Regional Fly-In (RMRFI) has been expanded from two to three full days and will feature an enhanced Front Range Air Show. The 2007 RMFI, June 22-24, will be the fly-in's fourth consecutive year at Front Range Airport and the 29th year in the Denver metro area. Front Range is located east of Denver near the town of Watkins along the I-70 corridor, just six miles southeast of Denver International Airport.
Along with the new name, the air show also has a new format with different attractions each day, providing attendees with a wider variety of aircraft throughout the weekend than ever before.
"The Front Range Air Show will provide an exciting and exclusive aviation experience to the community," said Scott McMillan, director. Saturday's air show will feature precision solo and formation aerobatic performances by local and national pilots. On Sunday warbirds will take center stage, opening with a special ceremony honoring the nation's veterans and leading off a distinctive military theme planned for the fly-in's final day.
Expansion from two to three days adds a full day of activities on Friday allowing the event to cater to the pilots with greater access to aircraft judging, seminars, and hands-on workshops. Meanwhile, they'll have more free time to stroll through the exhibits and talk with fellow aviation enthusiasts.
"I'm thrilled that we are going to provide better access to the event for the flying public," said Jim Cimiluca, organization president and fly-in director. Pilots can participate in aircraft judging on both Friday and Saturday, with seminars presented throughout the event.
RMRFI has also partnered with Denver representatives of the FAA Safety Team (FAAST) to offer a wider selection of topics than ever before. This new partnership will ensure that the RMRFI remains the region's leading venue for pilot education and safety seminars.
