Morristown Fly-In September 22

EAA Chapter 1494 and the Morristown Airport are hosting the annual community fly-in / drive-in event on September 22nd.  This year’s event will include even more kid/family oriented activities than before.  A first this year will be a seaplane booth with several seaplanes (amphibious) on static display.  Cirrus Aircraft will be participating with a static display of an SR22, allowing participants to climb into the cockpit and experience the avionics panel in operation.  Hopefully, we will have some warbirds fly in and land and we will certainly have a variety of aircraft on display, both those based at MOR and others flying in for the event.  We will again have $25 airplane rides and are adding $25 helicopter rides this year.  The WACO from Sevierville will be back and offering flightseeing rides for purchase.  Life Star will reposition their helicopter during the event and give ground tours of their aircraft, explaining how they operate.  We’ll also have food vendors on site. Admission and parking are free.

This event is an invitation to the community to come out and enjoy a day immersed in the world of aviation, learn more about some of the businesses that operate from their airport, take a ride in a plane or helicopter and view a variety of aircraft on the ground and in the air.  Additionally, Lloyd’s Music Mart is hosting a Fly-in Music concert following the airport event.  The concert will start at 3pm and go until dark, with 5 bands and $5 admission.
