2021 Update

Line up and wait. We're back in 2021.

Friends, neighbors, aviators, and enthusiasts. Following our forced canceling of the 2020 airshow, we're excited to announce the dates for the 2021 event. You'll notice it's on Memorial Day weekend, which will be several weeks later in the season. This means better flying weather, warmer weather, longer days, and more fans able to attend because of time off. The team is excited to see you this year, where we'll commit some aviation today in a big, Alaskan way. Save the date,  and see you soon!
