Join us for the  

Annual Hood River Fly-in    

This Weekend at WAAAM  

Fly in 2013 Public Poster

    Always the weekend after Labor Day, the Hood River Fly-in is sure fun for everyone.


What is a fly-in?  

Think of it as a car show for airplanes.   

Hundreds of them! 


Pilots fly their private planes from all over the country to visit WAAAM, The Gorge and to join in the fun at this Fly-in. Not a pilot but love aviation.... you too are invited to come see what the the world of general aviation is all about. Talk with the owners, restorers, pilots, and aviation enthusiast.  Action, Fun, Food, Airplane and Helicopter Rides, Book Signings, R/C info, Hay Ride, Beer Garden, and hundreds of beautiful aircraft.
