MAY 20th - 27th, 2019
The annual Endless Foot Drag fly-in has been relocated to Fredonia, Kansas!
Hosted by Michael Holliday of Flint Hills PPG
and located at the City of Fredonia airport.
Saturday, May 25th
Patriotic Fly-Over, 5pm
Fireworks Show, at dark
Everyone is invited to come out and watch the fun so grab a lawn chair and cooler of water - there is no admission fee for spectators but you will want to observe all barricades that will be placed around the landing zones. This is for everyone's safety because these pilots can come in for landing at high speeds! Again, NO ADMISSION for spectators!
We're keeping our eyes open for a daily schedule but because most of the contests depend on windspeed and weather it's a little too soon for a written itinerary. Pilots will be in the air for the entire eight days they are here, with main events and contests running Thursday through Saturday evenings.
Best times to look up and see what's going on? Right around sunrise and for a few hours each morning and then again every evening. On Saturday evening, May 25th there will also be patriotic fly-over at 5pm and a fireworks show at dark, so plan on heading on over to the Fredonia Airport to watch some really fantastic aerial acrobatics.
Anyone interested in being a retriever driver for the nonpowered pilots can send a private message to the Chamber. We'll forward your cell phone number to the event organizer so that he can get you set up with the locator app. It's a paying gig, folks!
Retrievers will be paid $15-20 per pick-up.
Stay tuned for more!
