The Weekly Fly-In Events List

A Weekly List of Fly-In Aviation Events In and Around Central Florida

The XB-70 Valkyrie at the National Museum of the United Air Force, Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH.  The museum consists of four massive hangars and features displays that range from the earliest days of aviation to the latest experimental programs.  It is a "must see" for any aviation enthusiast.  For more information on the collection, visit the Museum's website at: http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil 

This Week's Notes

Weekend Events

Greetings from Dayton, OH and apologies for the delayed distribution of this week's newsletter.  I am knocking off an "aviation bucket list" item with a visit to the National Museum of the United States Air Force.  It is an amazing place and it is difficult to describe its scale both in sheer size and the variety of its collection.  For an airplane buff, you could spend weeks here and still not see everything in complete detail.  If you ever find yourself in Dayton, don't miss the opportunity to visit.

This weekend is well filled with events and if you have a chance, check out the "Save the Clipper" Rummage Sale at KGIF.  The Central Florida Flying Club recently received a donation of a Piper Clipper and the Rummage Sale is one of their creative fund raisers to support the restoration of the airplane.

Next week is one of those fall flying season weekends where there's more going on than you can shake a stick at.  Take a look at the listings and perhaps you can get to more than one event with some good planning!

Hopefully the weather will cooperate today and tomorrow and as always, have fun and be safe.

The 50th Annual Thomasville Fly-In

The 2016 Fly-In was a great success!  A huge thank-you to all the friends of general aviation who visited us, whether you came by air or by ground!  In Thomasville, we love aircraft of all kinds - and we had all kinds here last October, from lovingly restored classics to shiny new homebuilts and everything in between.  The kids always enjoy the candy drop, and everyone seems to enjoy the food, but the best thing about the Thomasville Fly-In is the people who come to support us and stay to visit a while.  We hope to see you in 2017!  

From the flight to Thomasville, to your arrival and greeting from our hard-working group of volunteers, our goal is to make you feel a part of our family of aviation enthusiasts.  Our regulars return year after year. . .we hope you will, too!
 
Great aircraft, friends old and new, good fellowship, plenty of tasty food:

Punta Gorda Airport (KPGD) - Punta Gorda, FL
Florida International Air Show

The Florida International Air Show (FIAS) organization is a 501(c) 4 Florida “not for profit” corporation and staffed entirely by volunteers.

FIAS mission is to present a yearly Air Show that is focused on wholesome family entertainment, educational to all attendees in the areas of aviation and space, present a forum for military and civilian flight demonstrations, create a friendly environment for military recruiting, involve community support to the maximum and give favorable exposure to the Punta Gorda Airport as a major local economic asset.

The organization is a 501(c) 4 Florida “not for profit” corporation and no one is paid, so income from gate receipts, sponsors and other income producing events goes to putting on the yearly Air Show. Monies in excess of this requirement are distributed to local working charities, which directly support the Show, in a yearly event attended by the recipients. To date, the Air Show has distributed $2.9 million to southwest Florida working charities.

This year's performers will include:
  • Alabama Boys/World's Smallest Airport
  • The US Army Golden Knights Parachute Team
  • Jim Peitz and his Aerobatic Beechcraft F-33C Bonanza
  • P-51D Mustang "Quicksilver"
  • 138th Fighter Wing of the Oklahoma Air National Guard Demonstration
  • Chance-Vought F4U-4 Corsair "Korean War Hero"

Experimental Aero DRDT-2 Deep Reach Dimpling Tool - $225.00


Now dimpling is consistent, easy, safe, less fatiguing and noise free. The experimental aircraft builder can now achieve commercial quality results in their own shop. Dimple at anytime day or night without disturbing your family or neighbors. Thousands of DRDT-2 in the field helping builders for the past 10 years.

The DRDT-2 is a welded steel c-frame rivet dimpler. It replaces the common impact c-frame rivet dimplers of the past. With its sample mechanical advantage, dimpling is fast, easy, noise free, less fatiguing and safe on the skins. With a fully adjustable die holder you can achieve consistent and accurate dimples**. The DRDT-2 incorporates a new low force spring return system that prevents skin damage from the accidental release of the handle without increasing the force required to dimple. 22" throat depth allows dimpling of up to 44" wide sheets. The relief under the lower frame member provides dimpling access to spars, ribs, leading edge skins. Designed and analyzed using state of the art engineering tools the DRDT-2 can handle all your dimpling needs on your project.

The DRDT-2 is painted with an industrial powder coat giving one of the toughest finishes available. The -2 comes ready to dimple (minor assembly required) or can be purchased as a Front End Kit and the builder can construct the frame* to the frame fabrication drawings provided (frame structural steel not provided with Front End Kit).

*Steel sections can be purchased locally either through steel scrap yards or excess material from steel fabricators. The frame can be fabricated by a local steel fabricator or by the builder themselves. Basic welding skills and tools required (or at least a friend with them). **Dimple dies not included

Operational Note: The DRDT-2 weighs approximately 55 lbs and should be clamped securely to a sturdy work surface.
