Please see our update in compliance with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic
The board of the Valdez Fly In has decided to postpone the 2020 event to the weekend of June 27-28. We will confirm that an event on that date will still be possible by June 1st. During these unprecedented times will we need to assure that we will be able to have the event in a safe manner for all involved. We hope that our lives have returned to somewhat normal by then. When we all get through this we are going to need events like the Fly In to reconnect with friends for fun, fellowship and flying.
We appreciate everyone who attends and those who are able to watch and support our event. We would like to especially thank representatives from the FAA, The State of Alaska, The City of Valdez and numerous volunteers who have not only been willing to work with us to change the date but are enthusiastically hoping that we can host it.
If you have questions you can contact us at ValdezSTOL@gmail.com. We will keep everyone appraised of our plans as we get closer to June. The board feels strongly that we want to run the event just as we have in the past.
We will continue to host the premier STOL contest along with our other events and performers in a safe and professional manner. We look forward to hopefully see you all on a beautiful June weekend in the unmatched setting of Valdez.
