[22 Oct 2023 1700-2000z] BVA Fly-in: Scenic Route 20 Fly-in!
« on: September 24, 2023, 12:18:11 PM »

Set the parking brake on the airliner and knock the cobwebs off your favorite general aviation aircraft! The General Aviation Fly-In visits locales across the country that are famous for their scenery and general aviation influence. While anything from a single-engine Cessna to a regional jet is welcome in this event, ‘low and slow’ offers the best opportunity to experience the scenery.

During the event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller Class C and D airports, with overlying radar controllers to provide VFR Flight Following and IFR services. Fly VFR closed traffic, practice instrument approaches, or fly VFR or IFR between the featured airports: the choice is yours.

This week's event features Syracuse (KSYR), Rome Griffiss (KRME), Albany (KALB), and Schenectady County (KSCH). We're taking in all the fall foliage slow flighting along Route 20 in Western New York. Enjoy the immaculate views nestled between the Adirondack Mountains and Alleghany Plateau as your trudge your way from east to west or west to east.

Event Date: Sunday, October 22nd
Event Time: 1300-1600 ET {1700-2000z}
