New Date For Virginia Regional EAA Fly-In

Conflicts Force Move

The Virginia Council of EAA Chapters, Inc (VAEAA). has moved the dates of the Ninth Annual Virginia Regional EAA Fly-In to October 1-2, 2005. The fly-in will be held at the Dinwiddie County Airport (PTB), as in prior years. Conflicts with other aviation events forced the date change.

The 2005 Virginia Regional EAA Fly-In offers a broad variety of EAA events and activities. Starting with a pancake breakfast, both days will be filled with forums and workshops. Several of the forums can count towards the FAA's WINGS Safety program.

Forum examples include:

  • Sport Pilot: the final rule is here!
  • Winter Weather (Icing) and DCA ADIZ
  • Flight Test Planning for Experimental Aircraft
  • Quality Exterior Re-finish: more than just a "paint job"
  • Soldering, shielding and wiring tips for your homebuilt electrical system
  • What glider pilots can teach power pilots
  • What an owner can do: tips and tricks
  • A practical guide for the builder, owner and pilot
  • Selecting the right aircraft for you.
  • And several more!

Those who request it can have their aircraft judged. A special youth tent and a circle for flying control line models will be available, as well as quite a few aviation vendors and the ever popular Fly-Market.

Of course, an afternoon air show is scheduled to entertain the crowd.

Scheduled performers include:

  • Charlie Kulp - aka 'The Flying Farmer' flying a Piper J-3 Cub.
  • Charles Schwenker of Cascade Aerobatics flying in his Extra 300.
  • Bill Finagin, doubling up, flying his carbon fiber Panzer One and a Pitts S2-C.
  • Nancy Lynn flying her Extra 300L.
  • The Split Image Aerobatic Team flying two Pitts biplanes in aerobatic maneuvers in close formation flying. (Shown below on last year's poster)

Also, the  Hanover Radio Control Group will debut at the VA State Fly-in, flying models in the performance. As always, these events depend on volunteers to make everything run smoothly.

VAEAA is a non-profit Virginia corporation made up of eight Virginia EAA Chapters and five Associate Member aviation organizations that incorporated in 1996. The organization's only source of revenue is charitable contributions. A $10 donation is requested for all adults. Children 13 and under are free

Be sure to check the different approach procedures for airplanes and ultralights if you're planning to fly in.
