Louisiana EAA Fly-in Series Announces Schedule

Come On Down For A Festival In The Air, Cher

After another highly successful season since being revived in 2003, the Louisiana EAA Fly-in Series rolls into 2005.  ORganizers say their goals are to raise aviation awareness of the general public and increase aviation activity, which of course are both beneficial to all of us involved in aviation.  We feel that this unique fly-in series has been very successful in achieving those goals.  Several or our 2004 events had over 100 aircraft participating.  Overall, over 300 pilots and their aircraft registered at the 12 events that were held last year (only one event had to be rescheduled and one was totally washed out) and even more participated.

2005 Series Events:

The series will begin on April 2-3 at Slidell.  Here is a list of all 13 events that are currently scheduled:

  • April 2-3

The people organizing the events told ANN in a statement, "We are encouraging participation from every organization involved in aviation in the state - FAA, 99's, CAP, Military, Ag Operators, Louisiana DOTD, Flight Schools, Commercial Operators, IAC, etc. Most Fly-in s will have Young Eagles flights.  Check the series website listed below for additional details as the date of the event gets closer."

Fly-in  Series Prizes: Organizers of the event say they want to encourage participation by every aircraft in the state.  To help provide that encouragement, we are requesting prizes from aviation-related and other companies to present to series participants.  We want to thank our 2004 Sponsors for their generous support: Darryl Christen, Rans Aircraft, Oregon Aero, Concorde Batteries, EAA, Lancair, Trade-A- Plane, H&E Equipment Services and Exxon Elite Aviation Oil.  We gave out over 80 prizes to series participants last year.  Please contact the Series Coordinator below if you wish to be a 2005 Sponsor.
