Come Fly With Us…
EAA Chapter 1044 schedules numerous fly-outs throughout the year – everything from the short “breakfast run” to extended trips to popular destinations.

Upcoming 2018 Fly-Outs
- September 1-3 – Durango-Silverton train tour @ Durango, CO (KDRO) Take advantage of the Labor Day weekend and enjoy this classic, narrow-gage train tour that traverses some of the most scenic geography in southeastern Colorado. We will depart the Durango depot between 8:00-8:45 AM and return to the station that evening between 5:15-6:00 PM. Standard-class coach will be ~$89/adult. If we have 20 (or more!) participants, there may be a group discount available. Check out their website here.
- September 13-16 – AOPA fly-in @ Santa Fe, NM (KSFE) AOPA is having a fly-in in Santa Fe. And, since the airpark’s booth will be present, EAA 1044 is adding its support by attending, as well! There are a couple of lodging options but they will fill up quickly due to AOPA’s presence. So, contact me ASAP for further details… Check out the fly-in website here.
- October 13-14 – Hi-Desert fly-in @ Winslow, AZ (KINW) & stay at La Posada There will be lots of exhibits – both on the tarmac and in the hangar. You might plan to spend the night at La Posada and attend the hangar dance on Saturday night with its live band! Check out the fly-in website here. In addition, this is a fine opportunity to do something for the less fortunate… In partnership with Winslow Head Start, High Desert Fly-In invites attendees to become Fly-In Angels by donating new or gently-used winter outerwear (coats and jackets) and accessories (hats, gloves, and scarves) for 4-to-6-year-old children. Simply bring whatever you would like to donate to the Fly-In or Gala.
- November 17-19 – San Diego & Tijuana, MEX This Getaway weekend has options! Some of us may simply stay in San Diego and spend Sunday touring the Air & Space Museum located in Balboa Park. Others may take the opportunity to hop on ground transportation and head for Tijuana, MEX for a south-of-the-border lunch at Caesar’s. (Did you realize that “caesar salad” was created by restaurateur Caesar Cardini
, an Italian immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the US. Cardini lived in San Diego but also worked in Tijuana where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition.)
While these great Getaway trips are created by EAA 1044, feel free to invite your neighbors and friends along! Part of the EAA’s mission is to promote General Aviation. And, flying to exciting locations with friends is a wonderful way to do just that!
