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. Any pilot wishing to hold a nearby parking space for an incoming pilot can just let the ground personnel know after parking.
Camping is available at the airport next to your airplane. The pilots lounge is open for public use and includes shower, restroom and kitchen facilities. There will be food vendors at the airport all day Saturday and there are also several local restaurants in Concrete which is about a 15-20 minute walk. Fuel Station Our fuel station has 100 LL aviation gas available. It is required that you carry a minimum of liability insurance on your aircraft to participate in the Concrete Fly-In. Please utilize safety precautions at all times. Please stay off the runway and behind the aircraft parking lines (painted in orange) at all times unless necessary. If you must cross the runway, please exercise caution in doing so. No low fast passes upon taking off are permitted.
