Zoom on in to the seventeenth annual Lyon County Fly-In, Saturday and Sunday, OCTOBER 4 & 5, (Note the new dates!) at the Silver Springs Airport for a weekend of fun-filled skies. The Fly-In is officially open from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Saturday and 3:00 PM Sunday and there will be a pancake breakfast each day, free to pilots who fly in, from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.

The Lyon County Fly-In is about antique aircraft alongside modern military and fire-fighting planes. Meet pilots, builders, and restorers of military, antique, and ultra-light aircraft. Enjoy the “Young Eagles” program where we take young people aloft for their first off-the-ground experience.

For Pilots Only: Attend free seminars for pilot continuing education in our new Aviation Center, along with displays, presentations, and information booths. We even have a special raffle, just for pilots! For more info click here

The Lyon County Fly-In offers the Young Eagles First Flight program, where youth ages 8 through 17 can fly FREE with a general aviation pilot. This encourages young people to consider their future in math, science, or aviation. The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 1073 Truckee provides the pilots, who volunteer their time, their plane, and their expertise. Great thanks to EAA.

 

Young Eagles: You can download and complete the Registration Form in advance and get your parents to sign it. Bring it with you to the Lyon County Fly-In and soar with the Young Eagles!
