FAA & FDOT meeting at Aviation City

Dear Friends of Arcadia Airport

Thank you for allowing us to use the campsite pavilion at Aviation City!  As you know we had a meeting this morning with FAA and FDOT and I couldn’t wait to get back to my office to tell you how much of a success this meeting was today

One of the main reasons why our meeting was a success was the setting.  We all enjoyed sitting at the picnic table, looking over our Airport Layout Plan hearing all  the planes flying around as our background noise while we were all planning.    They enjoyed seeing the activity at the airport and really understand what our needs are.

FAA and FDOT really like what you have done with Aviation City.  In fact, they mentioned with the birds chirping and the shade and surrounding trees, the only other thing they wished they brought was their hammock

Thank you for helping us accomplish our goals today with the perfect setting at Aviation City!

Millennial Wings pilots flew in for a 3 day 2 night camping event in late February of 2016 with 28 aircraft and about 60 pilots camping out.

Travis says:

“George, Rickey, Bob, Ross & Dave,
My name is Travis Sherman. I was one of the pilots that flew into X06 this past weekend. I want to extend my appreciation to everyone involved at FOAA and the airport staff for allowing us to use the facility and providing such a great space for camping and parking. Every detail seemed to be covered even down to air fresheners and hand sanitizers in the Porte lets. Much like formation flying opening up a facility (especially to pilots) requires a great deal of trust, thank you for trusting us enough to use your space. I hope we lived up to your expectations as your airport greatly surpassed ours.
My brother Derek Sherman flew down from Tallahassee for the event. All in all the event was great and we appreciate your kindness and trust. We are already looking forward to next year’s fly in!

Happy flying,

Travis Sherman “

Aviation City was packed for our Grand Opening thanks to Mark Futch. He gave a great presentation for a group of about 60 guests.
