Attendees at the Cessna 150-152 Fly-In have a choice of camping under the wing at the Airport or a hotel room in town.
Fly-In veterans all agree the camping option is the most fun, and very convenient to spur-of-the-moment flying, food, sing-alongs, games and fun. Plus the price is right! Get there early to pick the best parking spot! (pssssst… they’re all good) Hot showers and the air-conditioned FBO are available 24/7. If you forgot something, there’s a Super Walmart in town, just a quick van ride away.
But, as the Air Force types would say, “Why dig in when you can check in?” There are several good hotels in town, and we offer a free van service to take you to and from your hotel.
