Fly-In

Concrete Vintage Fly-In – July 21, 22, 23, 2017

P1060102NorthCascadesVintageAircraftFlyInThe annual Concrete Vintage Fly-In (formerly North Cascades Vintage Fly-In) has grown to become a favorite fly-in for vintage, classic and antique airplane enthusiasts. Nestled in the foothills of the North Cascade mountain range in Washington state, the fly-in draws numerous significant and interesting aircraft.  The Fly-In not only appeals to vintage aircraft enthusiasts and locals enjoying the community, but also Skagit Valley visitors driving the Cascade Loop and visiting the North Cascades National Park find it an excellent festival stop on their vacation.The North Cascades Vintage Aircraft Museum and the Town of Concrete are working to make this year’s Fly-In the best ever.  This year there will be live music by the Concrete High School Jazz Band, a beer garden hosted by Anacortes Brewery, free children’s activities, pancake breakfast hosted by Grasmere Fire Dept, food trucks and most importantly many vintage aircraft!

Aircraft Departures

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 Fly-In!

Pilots – Please see our Pilot Information for Fly-In Details.

Arrival & Parking

In an effort to accommodate the ever growing number of aircraft flying in, the fly-in will again use a higher density, overlapping tail to tail parking system for this year’s fly-in. Once again the ground crew will be reserving the southeast corner of the main parking area for antique, vintage and classic aircraft. Other aircraft are kindly asked to park either on the south side of the runway (which, at the east end, is equally great viewing for airplanes landing and taking off)  as well as the parking available west of the main museum hangar.

Arriving pilots should monitor and communicate on 122.9 as they approach the airport. Upon landing, pilots will be directed to the best available parking where they will be met by ground personnel who will help them with the parking and hand out registration cards (registration is free).  Any pilot wishing to hold a nearby parking space for an incoming pilot can just let the ground personnel know after parking.

Accommodation & Food

Camping is available at the airport next to your airplane. The pilot’s lounge is open for public use and includes shower, restroom and kitchen facilities.

There are several local lodging options in Concrete, more information can be found here: Concrete Lodging.

There will be food vendors at the airport all day Saturday (see above) and we have some other plans too, keep checking back for updates! There are also several local restaurants in Concrete which is about a 15-20 minute walk.

Other fun!

We expect the Skagit Valley Antique Car Club on Saturday and a local vintage motorcycle club to join us at some point during the weekend! We encourage you to dance along to the music of the Skagit Valley Swing Band who will be performing on Saturday from 1:30 pm til about 4:00 pm!

Fuel Station

Our fuel station has 100 LL aviation gas available – please note that it will take about 10 minutes to fuel up.  We are offering member’s discounted rate (price per gallon to be announced) for the month of July, and by joining as a member the discounted rate is available all year!
