Friday, August 20th – Sunday, August 22nd, 2021
This summer, Young Pilots USA will be hosting its first ever annual fly-in event! Located at Goodspeed Airport (42B) in East Haddam, CT, it'll be a weekend full of flying fun right on the Connecticut River. Pilots and the general public are equally welcome at this great weekend of aviation!
About the Airport
A privately-owned, public-use airport, Goodspeed is the perfect location to host this event. Featuring a 2,100' asphalt runway and 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 first major event. Pilots flying in should refer to the VFR sectional and chart supplement to learn more, and contact Young Pilots USA for further questions. As the event approaches, we will release more information specific to pilots flying in.
Attendees will be treated to lots of flying and community, with aircraft on display, camping, lots of food at restaurants nearby, bonfires, and more. The weekend-long fly-in will also feature STOL, spot landing, and flour bombing competitions. Please RSVP at right!
Admission & Rates
The Goodspeed Fly-In is a totally free event, from admission to parking (for both cars and aircraft) to camping. We just ask that if you can, you register at the link at right so we get a good idea of attendance numbers for planning purposes.
