    This is no ordinary fly-in. Join us in Spokane, Washington, at Felts Field for a truly new way to experience the aviation life. There will be three STOL demonstrations, two water drops, two movie nights, two warbird flyovers, and one Big Band Dinner Dance. All this takes place Friday and Saturday September 9 and 10 and costs just $20. 

    This is an AOPA Fly-In; however, it is different than our previous fly-ins. The Hangout is a more casual event. Like the name states, we want you to fly in and hang out with us. Expect outdoor exhibits, a robust static display, educational seminars focusing on STOL and backcountry flying, predominantly led by the AOPA Air Safety Institute. We will have daily, high-energy STOL demos, as well as warbird flyovers and water drops—all the fun stuff. We encourage you to pitch a tent and camp in our large camping area, as well as visit our 39 Lounge, which is where the hanging out will take place. Grab a seat in the 39 Lounge for the STOL demos during the day and in the evenings for a drink and grab something from a local food truck, listen to live music by country music star Nick Hoffman, or visit our fly-in theater and catch a movie. Bring your family and make a weekend of this event.

    The Historic Flight Foundation museum on the field will be hosting a Big Band Dinner Dance on Friday night. Bob Hope impersonator William Johnson will present a tribute to the USO. On Saturday night there will be a camp party at fire pits on the field.

    Find information on the Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission, a group created by the Legislature to develop recommendations to meet Washington state critical aviation system capacity needs.

    The Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission was created by the Legislature and tasked WSDOT Aviation to provide staff support for coordinating and administering the commission and technical assistance as requested by commission members.

    The CACC aims to recommend a single preferred location for a new commercial service airport by June 15, 2023. In addition to recommending a new primary commercial aviation facility, the commission will recommend additional ways to accommodate capacity needs at other facilities.

    We are responsible, according to the Legislature (PDF 76 KB), for the administration of the commission’s work while providing technical support to the commission members.

    Communication to the public and stakeholders will be crucial for CACC. The communication plan will provide the following:

    • A logical and factual framework for understanding the issues that must be addressed by the CACC and for understanding how the decisions will be made.
    • Meaningful ways for people who want to be included and involved in the deliberations of the CACC.
    • Assure that major stakeholders, such as local governments, the aviation industry, airports, and regional planning agencies have timely information to assure meaningful input
