Thread: 2013 Arlington Air Show

  1. #1

    2013 Arlington Air Show

    It is definitely that time of year up here in the PacNW to get flying. I saw the sun yesterday and even a few birds were up in the sky!

    The Arlington Airshow is coming up July 11-13th and I want to see who is interested in participating either by flying in and/or volunteering at the BAC booth? This year's show has been shortened, but the promise is that it will be just as sweet as years past. This year there is even going to be a night pyro technics airshow!

    Here is a link to the schedule of events:

    http://www.arlingtonflyin.org/events/daily-schedules/

    So who's coming? Who can volunteer time to work at the BAC booth?

    Weather and time permitting I think it would be nice to have a mini-fly-in to somewhere in the San Juan Islands, maybe for a lunch.

    Please let me know soon and thanks for your support!

    Jon I'm heading for Arkansas in late June. If things work out I will attend. I just can't give a commitment yet.

    Jon,
    I've got some surgery coming up in a few weeks, so I don't know yet if I'll be up to flying in mid July. If my recovery goes well I should okay but I'll have wait and see.

    I'm in. Look for the Sundowner camping with two 8-yr olds.

    All,

    I am getting pinged by the Arlington Airshow organizer about tents and other various items necessary to put a booth together. I am going to call her and let her know we are not going to have a booth this year since, based on number reply's, we are busy (I mean this in no condescending way, I wouldn't be able to make it there until Friday -- work...).

    I will still be at the fly-in and hope to meet as many of you as possible! We will continue to use this thread as communication link. You can PM me as well.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Jon-
    I think that is the right call. We did a booth the first year and had a pretty good turn-out but the booth didn't (and doesn't) really attract a lot of serious attention. It is sort of like listening to everybody's VW Beetle story....I used to fly a Musketeer, I had a Sundowner years back, etc. etc. I really didn't think we got any bang for our buck but the party for the vendor after closing was pretty good! LOL!

    Wish I could make it this year but I will be in Atlanta at a family shindig! Have fun and take lots of photos!

    Good call. Jon, you made the right decision, and Chris said it like it is. With that said, I did buy my Sundowner, but not solely based on the BAC interaction at the Fly-In. But Marty is a good salesman. I will be there, my plane might stay in the hangar and it is also annual month.

    I'm happy to assist as needed. Nothing sells the Beech more then just leaving both doors open.

    The Arlington Airshow will not have a BAC Fly-in or Booth, but that doesn't mean we can't meet up if we have plans of stopping in! Who is planning on being there and when? My dad and I will be there sometime around 12pm on Friday 7/12, and leave sometime before the airshow on Saturday, weather permitting we plan a hop over to the San Juan islands to get lunch. Any recommendations on lunch in the San Juans?

    The best place is Roche Harbor. Fine food and great scenery overlooking the yacht harbor. Watch for the hill in the East 1/3 of the runway. You sometimes will get airborne again if you are not on speed.
