The Hangar 24 AirFest and 9th Anniversary Celebration is happening on Saturday, May 20th from 12pm to 10pm. The event will feature numerous airshow acts, including our own hometown pilot, Tony Higa. There will be aircraft displays, live music, a greatly expanded Kids Zone and much more. Of course there will also be plenty of Hangar 24 brew as well (35 varieties).
We have had some meetings about AirFest with the nice folks over at Hangar 24 and once again they are offering up complimentary parking and event tickets for airport tenants. There is a 4 ticket limit per hangar tenant and ticket requests must be received by April 20th. Also, if you are an aircraft owner and you want to display your worthy ride, you can request to do so. More information about the event, requesting tickets or displaying your aircraft can be found on Hangar’s website or, e-mail the RAA: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be sharing this and more about AirFest at upcoming RAA meetings and communications. This event is a great opportunity to share our airport and general aviation with as many as 16,000 guests. We hope you too can join the fun.
