Northeast Comanche

2024 Fly-In Highlights


A lot of work goes into setting up the monthly fly-ins. It can be discouraging when only the few regulars show up each time. Please, check the fly-in schedule on the Northeast Tribe's website and try to attend those in your neighborhood.

Below is a general description of each 2023 fly-in location, along with other flying events of interest listed in red. Click on the airport identifier for a link to an AOPA Airports page for further information. As usual, rain dates are listed in parentheses.

April 23 (24), Martinsville VA
MTV) Enjoy lunch at Simply Susan's while on the way to Sun n' Fun in Lakeland FL. The Blue Ridge Airport lives up to it's name, and is located in a very picturesque region of Virginia. Come on down an shake off the winter blues!
April 9 - 14, Lakeland FL
   (LAL). Fly down to enjoy Sun 'N Fun and join fellow Comanche drivers at Comanche Town in the Vintage parking area. Be sure to check the arrival Notams and registration procedures. Click here to register your Comanche ( 2024 Sun n' Fun Comanche Town). Be sure to give complete information.

Enter your plane to compete for prizes ($15 fee). Food will be available at the airport, and at Il Paradiso, an excellent Italian restaurant just outside the gate. Those arriving from the southern coastal states might enjoy using the Hudson River Corridor � view New York City from 1200 feet, but check for TFRs.
July 21, Newport NH - possible Wings & Wheels event and chance for fly-in camping!
  (2B3) Parlin Field is a quiet gem in the Lakes region of New Hampshire. This town owned airport is "run" by a local pilot organization under the direction of a town appointed manager. Food will be available on-site. See the many cars and other aircraft on display!

There you have it, a thumbnail sketch of the 2024 planned fly-ins � some new, some renewed � along with some of the nearby attractions. Watch your email for details as each date arrives, then plan to attend and bring your family and friends!  But please, if you are even thinking of attending any fly-in, register on the Northeast Tribe website. We need to know your interest and to be able to update you on any factors involved.

See you at the next (and the next, and the next...) Northeast Comanche Tribe fly-in.
