Rocky Mountain EAA Regional Fly-In Readies For June 22-24
June 7, 2007 —Organizers at the Rocky Mountain EAA Regional Fly-In are eagerly anticipating their 2007 event, which arrives June 22-24 at the Front Range Airport in Watkins, Colorado. "We've got three days this year for the first time, and they are three distinctly different days," said Jim Cimiluca, RMRFI director.
"Friday is like a traditional fly-in day, with better pilot access, aircraft judging, and the Barnstormers Ball at night. Saturday is our Salute to the Military day and the awards dinner that evening, and Sunday features the Front Line air show."
Cimiluca said that the facilities have been significantly upgraded this year with the installation of new showers and extended camping availability. "We really stepped up the camping," he said. "Showers is a biggie for us. We really needed that for a while."
Acres of aircraft will be on display, from historic warbirds to light-sport aircraft and other modern designs and most others in between. Other features include children's activities, aviation exhibits, safety seminars, and plenty of food.
EAA's Ron Wagner, manager of field relations, will present several forums including an EAA chapter leaders update Friday a 1 p.m.; Learn To Fly Now, 11:30 a.m. Saturday; and Sunday's EAA Sport Pilot update at 10:30 a.m.
NAFI VPs Sandy and JoAnn Hill will also present two forums, including Hot Topics For Flight Instructors (Saturday, 9:30 a.m.); and Learn to Fly - Ask Me How (Sunday, 11:30 a.m.).
