The Virginia Aviation Council is pleased to present, in conjunction with the Suffolk Peanut Festival, the Virginia Festival of Flight and Fly-In on Saturday October 7, 2017 at the Suffolk Executive Airport (KSFQ).
This event promises to be the most exciting yet. This is Virginia’s only statewide aerospace event of its kind, accomplished through: fantastic opportunities to attract youth and adults to all aspects of the field of aviation; informing attendees of a full range of aviation careers; providing details of ownership; discussing legal parameters; and sharing the many recreation adventures available.
The one day Festival has activities, presentations, vendors and demonstrations focusing on current pilots and aviation wannabees. The day’s schedule is guaranteed to excite all in attendance. Pilots who are always learning should check the schedule for one FAA Wings Seminar and one ASI Safety Seminar.
Together, the combination of these two festivals creates a family atmosphere of excitement, entertainment, education, and experiences.
Check out Suffolk’s weather for the festival weekend as we get closer.
