FARGO, N.D. — Fargo Jet Center and Fargo Flight School, along with the Hector International Airport, will host the 3rd Annual Fargo Airport Outdoor Movie Night on Thursday, Sept. 13. The event is designed to provide exposure and generate interest in the local community for its airport and affiliated businesses, according to FBO officials.
“Building on the success of last year’s event, we have put together a great event for the entire family,” said Darren Hall, VP of Marketing at Fargo Jet Center. “Last year’s event provided many with their first exposure to general aviation. A large percentage of the population never makes it out to the general aviation side of airports unless they have a reason. We have created that reason.”
The event will feature the screening of “Top Gun,” the 1986 movie featuring Tom Cruise that chronicles the adventures of the macho students of an elite US flying school for advanced fighter pilots. The movie will be shown on the North General Aviation ramp adjacent to Fargo Jet Center’s passenger facility.
The event begins at 6:30 with a display of classic cars and aircraft. Classic car clubs, as well as the local Experimental Aircraft Association chapter and local aircraft owners, are invited to display their vehicles and aircraft.
“People always love to come out to see airplanes and classic cars — so we combined the two to give people a reason to visit our facilities,” said Mike Paulson, Manager of FJC’s Fargo Flight School.
Fargo Jet Center and Hector International Airport will provide popcorn, water and sodas free to those attending. Officials suggest bringing a chair and blanket if you plan to stay during the movie. The movie will begin after dusk.
