Fairview Fly-In

Described as "World’s Oldest Free Fly-In & Airshow", this was their 55th year. It was started by Davey and Bessie Martens. The fly-in continues as a one-day fly-in on the Saturday that falls closest to Veterans Day. The Fairview Flying Club, the city of Fairview merchants/businesses and the FBO operator (the Regier family) do an outstanding job of putting this event on each year.

For the past several years a group of our local chapter members have flown in on Friday and camped out at the airport for the event. Due to two of our die-hard campers being without airplanes and the weather not exactly cooperating I was the only one that showed up and landed in a 36mph wind. Two airplanes from Texas did come in later and camped out.

With a free breakfast for fly-in pilots, a turkey for every tenth plane landing on Saturday, a sunny day with light winds and a short airshow with a good crowd, I would say the Fairview Fly-In was a success again this year.
