Fighter Town USA is open to all pilots who are members of AMA from any club

Starting with the Golden Era Fly-In this year, the Club offered an incentive for those pilots who registered to fly. This proved to be a success, therefore the Club decided to continue with this program: those pilots who register in the November 9, 2019 Fighter Town USA Event will receive one free raffle ticket. The winner of this raffle will receive $100.00 in cash. Raffle closes at 12:30 PM, drawing to follow closing. Landing/Registration fee is $10.00. All pilots must have a spotter. No fuel powered turbines.

Bring your children and enter them in the Free Fun-Fly for Kids. Everyone wins and receives a gift.
