The annual Arlington Fly-In and Sport Aircraft Convention is slated for July 8-12 at the Arlington Municipal Airport (AWO) north of Seattle.
Among the highlights of this year’s event are a presentation by aviatrix Arty Trost, a long-distance ultralight pilot, who recently flew her open cockpit ultralight from her home in Oregon to Lakeland, Fla., for the Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In. Trost will give a special presentation on her latest 3,500-mile trip at the Runway Theater on Friday evening.
For aircraft builders there are several workshops on materials and techniques, including a Composite Workshop that is free with advanced reservation.
The show features an elaborate warbird display area and rides for sale aboard a B-25 Pacific Prowler and a 1930 New Standard biplane.
Other planned activities include radio-controlled aircraft, jet and helicopter demonstrations, the appearance of the only airworthy Boeing 40 in existence, and a car show.
Sunday, July 12, is Veterans Appreciation Day, with free admission for all veterans.
There is camping on site, and visitors can both fly and drive to the event.
