Discover Flying Challenge

Postby HoneyBadger » Fri Jun 22, 2012 1:54 am

Hi Everybody,

My name is Ed Honey and I am interning for Cessna this summer. I'm dispatching 8 different 162 Skycatchers, Cessna's Light Sport Aircraft, across the country to different Fly-ins and other aviation events. I came onto this forum to ask you guys if you knew of any events we could go to and show off the Skycatcher?

big airshows that we already plan on attending
-OshKosh (I would hope that Cessna has already heard of this!!)
-Arlington Fly-In

What else is out there?


Thanks a lot,
Ed Honey

There are a number of fly-ins that are informally known as the "EAA Regional Fly-ins". They're not officially part of EAA any more, but they draw big crowds from their parts of the country.

I can't find a list on the EAA site, but this google search shows most of them.

PS. And if you can't find places to send them all, I have a couple (three?) ideas.

Thanks Jack, I'll see if any the pilots are free on some of those dates.


For anyone interested, here is the schedule that we will be have so far. The internship ends in August, so we're pretty much done after OshKosh.
