Palatka Municipal Airport slates Open House/Fly-In

Palatka Municipal Airport (28J) in Florida will hold its 3rd Annual Community Open House/Fly-In Jan. 26.

The event provides a unique opportunity for local citizens to come out to the airport walk out onto the airfield and see a lot of interesting airplanes, visit with aviation enthusiasts, and experience general aviation in an up-close and personal way, say airport officials.

A number of activities are planned for the day, including: free food (donation requested but not required), airplane, helicopter, sail-plane, and aerobatic airplane rides, remote control airplane displays, and demonstrations and a good deal of sky-diving activity.

With a full day of food, fun, festivities and flying planned, the City of Palatka hopes to build on momentum gained from the past two events and expects between 1,200-2,000 visitors and 100-150 aircraft flying in from the surrounding 68 GA airports in Northeast Florida, according to airport officials. “The last two events have been very successful in promoting GA to the local community and generating interest in the airport, which has undergone many improvements over the last four years,” officials add.
