The Fun Fly Zone is home to ultralights, light planes, powered parachutes and trikes, hot-air balloons, homebuilt rotorcraft, and light-sport aircraft (LSA). The area is best known for its grass runway, where you can get up close to the many daily aircraft operations, including morning and evening ultrlaight flying, homebuilt rotorcraft flights, as well as several scheduled special flight activities like the Valdez STOL demonstrations.
In between flights, browse the exhibit area for the latest equipment and technology available for this fun side of recreational flying. Or step inside the Ultralight Barn for gifts, merchandise, the Swap Shop, and daily technical forums and hands-on demonstrations.
Twilight Flight Fest at the Fun Fly Zone: will include nighttime 3-D RC airplanes and 3-D RC helicopters. Due to the popularity of Twilight Flight Fest last year, food and beverages will now be available in that area. As in the past EAA’s STOL Invitational will kick off the evening festivities, with a number of highly-modified bush aircraft showing off their impressive capabilities. The evening program will also include the powered paragliding Paradigm Aerobatic Team, the Patriot Parachute Team, and Red Bull Air Force skydivers.
