AOPA Hosts Its Largest Fly-In to Date

Almost 700 aircraft were in attendance at the event in Bremerton, Washington.

Nearly 700 aircraft were in attendance at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association’s fly-in at Bremerton National Airport (KPWT) on Aug. 19 and 20. The second of four AOPA 2016 fly-ins, the event held in Bremerton, Washington, was the largest AOPA fly-in to date, with more than 4,000 attendees.

“With more than 4,000 people and nearly 700 aircraft, the AOPA Bremerton Fly-In was our biggest yet,” said AOPA President Mark Baker. “Thanks to the help of the airport staff, local pilots and volunteers from groups including the Civil Air Patrol, the Experimental Aircraft Association and the Washington Pilots Association, we were able to bring together thousands of people in the Pacific Northwest who share a common interest in aviation.”

AOPA will host two more fly-ins this year at W.K. Kellogg Airport (KBTL) in Battle Creek, Michigan, on Sept. 16 and 17 and Prescott Municipal Airport (KPRC) in Prescott, Arizona, on Sept. 30 and Oct.1.
