The Fly-In concept was introduced in 2014 as a regional one-day show to replace the annual, multi-day AOPA Aviation Summit. So far, the events have been popular, with more than 27,000 people attending and 4,000 aircraft flying in to the 12 shows that were put on in 2014 and 2015. The idea of the Fly-Ins was to bring the events closer to its members. So far, the Fly-In has been conducted in 10 states. 2016 will add three new states to the list.
