The June 1 Fly-In is the same day as the Athens Old Fiddlers Reunion in Downtown Athens. A complimentary shuttle will operate between the airport and downtown, and also to the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center.
A classic car show is being planned for the airport grounds. Food vendors will be available onsite. In case of bad weather, the event will be held on Saturday, June 8th.
There will be awards for the oldest/youngest pilot, oldest plane, and longest flight to the event.
The Athens Municipal Airport Fly-In seeks to have private pilots fly into Athens for fellowship and to discover our local community. Email invitations will be sent to pilots, flying clubs and organizations, and general aviation airports to encourage participation.
Please note that this is not an airshow; there will be no aerial events, just static displays.
Check AWOS on date of event, 903-670-1247/119.60
