BVA's Minor Facility Showcase gives pilots the opportunity to experience one of our minor airports. Local and overlying air traffic controllers will be providing service for those looking to explore the area, practice instrument approaches, arrive from afar, or just remain in the pattern. With a single focus-airport, this is the perfect opportunity to experience being sequenced at a busier airport with both IFR and VFR arrivals.


This week's event features the controlled airport of Portland Jetport (KPWM), in Portland, Maine. This scenic coastal city offers great views along the shoreline, a fun charted visual approach, and is just a short flight from Bar Harbor (KBHB) and Acadia National Park.

It’s also a great time to try out one of our WINGS flights. Remember, many of the flights have published Alternate Airports, allowing you to earn your BVA pilot ratings at event airports!
