Join us on October 9th from 2-6pm ET (1800-2300z) as we venture to Upstate New York to take in the changing of the leaves from the air!

Saturday, October 09, 2021 – 18:00 to 22:00z

Set the parking brake on the airliner and knock the cobwebs off your favorite general aviation aircraft! The General Aviation Fly-In visits locales across the country that are famous for their scenery and general aviation influence. While anything from a single engine Cessna to a regional jet is welcome in this event, ‘low and slow’ offers the best opportunity to experience the scenery.

During this GA Fly-In event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller airports with overlying radar controllers to provide VFR Flight Following and IFR services. Fly VFR closed traffic, practice instrument approaches, or fly VFR or IFR between the featured airports: the choice is yours.

This weekend BVA is venturing to Upstate New York to take in the changing of the leaves from the air! Colloquially called “leaf peepers” residents of the New York City metro area venture north every year to see the leaves change. We decided we’d tag along this year.

It’s also a great time to try out one of our WINGS flights. Remember, many of the flights have published Alternate Airports, allowing you to earn your BVA pilot ratings at event airports!
