Save the Dates!
Friends, neighbors, aviators, and enthusiasts. Thank you for your continued support and patronage. We're pleased to announce the dates for the 2022 Valdez Fly-in. This year it'll be held on May 13-15. Save the date, and make plans to be there! Our team is working hard on extra details of the event, but it'll remain much the same as years past. We're eager to once again share in aviation with our aviation family. See you in May!
