The Iowa Aviation Promotion Group has launched the 2010 Fly Iowa Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to: Encourage pilots to visit Iowa’s airports; increase awareness of and promote Iowa’s airports; increase activity at Iowa’s airports; and increase the activity and proficiency level of pilots.
Pilots from all across the U.S. can undertake the challenge, which involves visiting as many of Iowa’s 109 public access airports as possible. There is no time limit for completion of the visits and when a participant completes the initial or bronze level they may claim a prize and continue qualifying for silver or gold (the highest level — all 109 airports). Flights must be recorded in an FAA logbook and the Fly Iowa Challenge Passport log and participant must remain registered for the flights to count.
Participants will be eligible for pilot accessories such as hats, shirts, pilot bags, and leather jackets. Rules and registration information is available at each Iowa airport or at FlyIowa.org under the Fly Iowa Challenge tab.
