The largest event of its kind in New England will be held again this year on Sept. 24 with even more fun for the entire family.

The Fly-In is like a special kind of country fair, built around displays of over 700 beautiful airplanes and cars, with 100+ businesses displaying their products, many aerial demonstrations, and an amazing array of 15+ food trucks to satisfy your hunger.

Other attractions throughout the day include; engine demonstrations, car and aviation related seminars, live music, gyrocopter demonstration, drone demonstration, and a formation flying demonstration by the Yankee Clippers.

Special Attractions This Year:

  • The future is here! Come see an all electric airplane demo, charged by an electric F-150 Lightning Truck, powered by renewable energy. Sustainable and accessible flight. 
  • Looking for adventure? How about nothing but a parachute and a motor on your back. Come see the amazing Powered Paraglider demonstration as they show you how close you can truly get to flying with the birds.
  • Want to get up in the air? Rides will be available for purchase in either a helicopter and WWII Trainer aircraft. 
  • LifeStar Helicopter (call-out permitting) and the heavy lift Kaman K-MAX helicopters will be on hand. You can see up close how these amazing vehicles and crews serve the community and beyond. 
  • The car show which attracts over 450 cars each year will have trophies awarded in over 30 categories to best in class.
