Aero Fair To Have Displays Of Planes, Cars, Tractors


As enthusiasm levels have gained elevation, the Aero Fair is finally flying into town this weekend.

Join pilots as they display their passion for all makes and models of aircraft, from Cessnas to home-built “experimental” planes.

The free event is from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 15 at the Payson Municipal Airport, 802 W. Airport Road.

Besides planes, new and classic cars and tractors will be displayed and you can even take a high-flying spin in a plane. The Experimental Aircraft Association 810 will offer rides at $25 a person.

For those who want to keep their feet firmly planted on the ground, there will be a pancake breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The Payson Pilots Association is cooking up pancakes, eggs and sausage all for $7 for adults and $4 for children under 10.

Vendors will also offer other edibles, crafts and activities for children.

A hangar will house a program on learning to fly with the Alliance Aviation presenting a seminar on the topic at 11 a.m.

A kid-sized Gee Bee will also be available for children to sit in and pretend to fly or get their photo taken.

The Payson Regional Airport Authority (PRAA) and an all-volunteer committee present the annual event.

Enter to win a Magellan RoadMate GPS device at the PRAA booth. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for six. You do not have to be present to win.
