Our new Aviation City brochure is finally completed and ready for distribution. We are seeking pilots and supporters to help us place them where they can be seen by the flying community not only in Florida but the entire southeast United States. We will gladly send you as many as you need by US mail if you promise to place them at your airport and others that you fly to. We have plenty but please do not volunteer to distribute them unless you will follow thru. They show the Aviation City facility in great detail and list all of our amenities including the new restroom/shower facility and the courtesy van. So if you can help us by hand delivering these brochures to airports near you where they can be seen we would greatly appreciate it. Send us an email at: Friends@FoAA.us with your name and mailing address and we will send them to you. Folding brochure shown below.
Thank you for your help.

Things are slow this time of year at Aviation City. We have been getting lots of rain so the grass is looking great on both circular taxiways at the site.
We are still seeking a loaner car so please keep your ears and eyes open for one for Aviation City. We can give the donor a full tax deduction for the donation.
Now is the time to plan your fly-in visit for this fall or winter. We now have a very nice 9ft x 13ft tent for families to use when visiting. Our plan is to have it set up during the season and ready to go to make it easier for a family to fly in and camp out. Visitors will now also have access to a fridge for cold storage along with our camp stove and other camping supplies to make your stay easier. And don’t forget those nice hot showers. So make your plans now.
See you in the fall !

Our new Facebook page has been hacked I guess. A few days after the page first appeared I got a notice from Facebook saying there had been some strange activity on the page. It had blocked access. I can not get to view the site to reset anything and therefore can not monitor or post anything. So the Facebook page “Aviation City Arcadia Florida” is out of my control at this time. As soon as possible I will shut it down but who knows when that may be possible. I would advise any of you that have visited or posted to the site not to do that anymore. I have got a number of emails from our email list asking us not to stop the email blasts and I can assure you that those will continue as usual.
Thanks very much.
People keep asking when we will be on Facebook? Well, we have finally done it. It is always hard to add another project or job to a group of volunteers but we hope the effort is worth it. We will see.

Our page title is Aviation City Arcadia Florida so please check it out and make a post or comment. If you have visited us please tell us your thoughts on the Aviation City Campground and even post a photo or two.
Help us spread the word on Facebook and encourage your Friends to visit our new page. If anyone has any suggestions for the page please let us know as we are still learning the lingo and trying to make it happen.
This post will go out to our over 700 email list so with those numbers we should be able to get the word out to thousands of Facebook followers with your help. So check out the Facebook page for Aviation City Arcadia Florida and LIKE & FOLLOW US.
We are working on a few off season projects for the campground in between the rain storms. Thanks for your support and we hope to see you camping at Aviation City soon.
