New Event Responds To Attendees Requests
After 14 successful years, the Virginia Aviation Council is
adding what it hopes will be a crowd pleasing flying event to their
popular Virginia Regional Festival of Flight. Surveys have shown
that attendees want to see more aircraft in flight in addition to
static displays. So this year, a Directed Parade of Flight will
take place on Saturday, April 28 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm at the
Suffolk Executive Airport (KSFQ). The airport will be closed by
NOTAM to all arriving and departing traffic during this aerial
Pilots who plan to participate in the Directed Parade of Flight
must fill out a form and send it to the Field Manager, Tom
The main rules for the parade of aircraft are:
- Open only to experimental, antique, classic and light sport
- The aircraft will be sorted by category and speed.
- Each plane is limited to three circuits of the airport, no
- Maximum of 4 planes in the pattern at a time.
- Minimum of 500 foot altitude over the runway.
- Normal traffic pattern.
The form, which is due by April 25th, is available on the event
website. The Festival of Flight will be offering its normal lineup
of forums, workshops, aircraft judging, and a pancake breakfast
