The fifth annual McCall Family Fly-In will bring together pilots, their families and aviation enthusiasts from throughout the Northwest, beginning today and continuing through Monday at the McCall Airport. The event is sponsored by ITD’s Division of Aeronautics.
Once a safety program for pilots and their aircraft, the Fly-In has evolved into an activity that attracts flying enthusiasts from throughout the region for a weekend of aviation exhibits, educational and safety seminars and entertainment.
This year’s activities include a display of antique and unique airplanes, aircraft rides for kids, fly-bys and education and training opportunities for pilots. Pilots also can participate in Wings, a pilot safety program, and PACE (Pilot and Aircraft Courtesy Evaluation).
The weekend also includes a behind-the-scenes tour of a fire center and the McCall Airport, contests, live music, a Boy Scout merit badge clinic and a pancake breakfast on Sunday.
The McCall Family Fly-In, which has become a summer staple in Valley County, is open to the public. Fees may apply for some activities.
