3rd Annual Goodspeed Fly-In

2023 DATES: TBA

Next summer, Young Pilots USA will again host its annual fly-in event with the 3rd Annual Goodspeed Fly-In. Located at Goodspeed Airport (42B) in East Haddam, CT, the 2021 and 2022 events were days full of flying fun right on the Connecticut River, and the third edition will mark an expansion of the Fly-In.

About the Airport

A privately-owned, public-use airport, Goodspeed is the perfect location to host our event. Featuring a 2,100' asphalt runway and certified 4,500' water runway, it's shaping up to become a haven for the aviation community under new ownership by friends of our organization– which is exactly why Young Pilots USA picked it for our fly-in. Pilots flying in should refer to the VFR sectional and chart supplement to learn more, and contact Young Pilots USA for further questions.

Event Details

The 3rd Annual Goodspeed Fly-In, dates TBA, will provide lots of community for young people in aviation and other entertainment. We are working on making sure that all of our logistical needs for 2023 are met well in advance, so that a conventional fly-in and open house environment can return, following a 2022 event with a narrower scope due to logistical difficulties.

Admission & Rates

The Goodspeed Fly-In is a totally free event, from admission to parking (for both cars and aircraft) to camping.
