Twilight Flight Fest Schedule Expanded for 2018
July 22, 2018 - On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights the Fun Fly Zone plays host to EAA’s Twilight Flight Fest, which allows attendees to get up close and personal with a variety of affordable and entertaining forms of flight.
Evening events kick off at 8 p.m. with the EAA STOL Invitational demonstrating incredible short takeoffs and landings. Come see how quickly these properly designed and equipped aircraft — and expert pilots —get airborne, and how little grass runway is needed for a successful touchdown!
The Paradigm Aerobatic Team will also perform a wide range of dynamic maneuvers in powered parachutes as part of the evening programs. In this pure form of lightweight aviation, the team uses ultralight paramotors to create an engaging performance reminiscent of an aerial three-ring circus as the pilots showcase their sharp maneuverability and precision.
In addition, the accomplished skydivers of the Patriot Parachute Team will demonstrate their skills to show what’s possible with a parasol. Last but not least, the popular 3D RC demonstrations are also returning to AirVenture this year, featuring large-scale RC aircraft with light, laser, and smoke effects.
