Another season is over at Aviation City and it was the most successful yet. Our numbers were impressive and we are having a huge impact on the airport and the community. We hosted 4 groups for 3 day fly-in weekends this year. The Recreational Aviation Foundation, The We Be Flyin group,The Florida Sport Aviation Antique & Classic Association and the Experimental Aircraft Associations Apopka Chapter. These 3 day events always prove to be a huge hit and the new restrooms are getting rave reviews. The addition of our 7 passenger mini van as a courtesy car is another huge asset for our guests.
We also hosted 3 one day fly in cook outs that managed to break some records as well. The one day events are attracting pilots from all over the State and country as proven by the Old Farts Flying Club on their 3rd year in a row visit to Aviation City. Aircraft of all types from small light sport to radial engine biplanes parked at the Aviation City campground for a great lunch. That day set an all time record for fuel sales at Arcadia Municipal.
Beginning in October of 2018 thru April of 2019 (only 7 months) we had 296 visitor nights and 746 visitor days at Aviation City. We had airplanes fly in to camp out from all over the nation and Canada this season. Represented were 20 different States and 30 different Florida Cities.
Thank you all for visiting and if you did not get a chance to camp out at Aviation City this season you need to make your plans now for next season as it is truly a great experience. Hope to see you at Aviation City soon. We are open year around.
