Livermore will host one of the 80th anniversary events of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Fly-In at the Livermore Airport this weekend, June 21 and 22.
Two full days of events are planned for pilots and non-pilots alike, from a pancake breakfast and food trucks to free educational seminars and paid in-depth workshops.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to see the AOPA Short Field Take-off and Landing (STOL) Invitational. Experienced pilots will use multiple aircraft to demonstrate short take-offs and landings on a turf surface located near the airport infield, in close view of the spectators.
A Drone Aerial Light Show will take place on Friday night. A fleet of no fewer than 80 drones will put on an aviation-themed show to celebrate AOPA’s 80th Anniversary. Fly-in visitors will also be able to view an expansive aircraft display, exhibit hall, excursions, fly-outs to other destinations, and Trade-A-Plane Aircraft Sellers Corral.
AOPA represents pilots and owners of smaller general aviation aircraft. Typically, the planes are 2-4 seat piston propeller driven aircraft.
