Lincolnton Fly-In

Airport Open House and Fly-In with Young Eagles Rally

* Food * Homebuilts * Sport Pilot/LSA * Young Eagles Rally - something for everyone with a Passion for Aviation!  Bring the Family!
Drive or Fly - Saturday, November 9, 2013, 10 AM - 3 PM - RAIN or SHINE!
The smell of hamburgers and hot dogs, a clear blue sky dotted with planes in the air and rows of aircraft spanning from the early days of aviation to the engineering marvels of today. Kids wide-eyed with anticipation of taking flight and builders bursting with pride on their just finished "creations." This is an EAA Fly-In. This is grassroots aviation and your chance to experience it!
Join the pilots of Charlotte EAA Chapter 309 for our Annual Lincolnton Fall Fly-in held at the Lincoln County Regional Airport (KIPJ), Lincolnton, NC. There is no admission fee so bring the family and plan on having lunch with us from 11:30 to 1:30 for a nominal fee.  The Airport will also have an Open House for the public to see their new Terminal Building.  The Young Eagles Rally will start at 9:00AM.  The airport is offering a $0.25 FUEL DISCOUNT for our pilots and visitors.
The public is invited and all aircraft are welcome to join us for food, flying, and fellowship. EAA Chapter 309's Fall Fly-in usually attracts over 60 aircraft, both homebuilt and certified, and an estimated 250 people.
In keeping with the chapter's support of Homebuilt aircraft the majority of the airplanes on display are meticulously built by dedicated builders from surrounding chapters . View this example of a homebuilt Van's RV-7 and don't miss previewing one of the new Sport Pilot/LSA planes that will be on display.  Also ask about the Chapter's aircraft construction project as our members will be available to answer questions.
The airport is located off of Rt 73 at 714 Jack Dellinger Drive (formerly Airport Road), Iron Station, NC 28080 - MAP LINK.  Phone:  704-735-0602
