FLY-IN – Since Covid hit and social distancing became our norm, you’ve been itching for a place to go and a reason to leave your home airport. Besides, your plane needs a bit of exercise. Maybe you do too?
Experience the great facilities and wonderful community of the Bradford County Airport. Enjoy live music and food from a food truck that will be on-site. See different airplanes, and watch some take-offs and landings. Part of our mission at the Bradford County Airport is to raise community awareness of our amazing airport and facilities, and encourage the general public, who may never become aviators, to enjoy what the airport has to offer.
SATURDAY- Fly-in Saturday afternoon/evening, August 1 and pitch at tent with us! There is no cost to attend the event or pitch a tent. Tailgate with us into the night Saturday and swap flying and riding stories making new friends and rekindling old friendships.
SUNDAY- If you can’t join us for camping Saturday night because your’re needed for the backyard BBQ, then don’t miss Sunday! Pack as many people in your plane as you can! Come for cheap AVgas (rumor has it that Bradford County’s already great airplane fuel prices will be dropped below what-you-can-believe, ONLY for this event). Come to show off your airplane, your piloting skills, meet and greet other pilots, enjoy food and live music! Pack your bicycle in the plane too, and get ready to ride-out! Of course, you don’t need to be part of the road ride to be part of the fun. In fact, you might not fly or ride. We still welcome you to join us!
DRIVE-IN – Don’t have a plane? You can call the event “Drive-In & Ride-Out” then! Drive yourself to the airport in whatever wingless vehicle you have.
CAMP OVERNIGHT SATURDAY NIGHT! – Bring an RV, camper, or tent to spend the night at the airport Saturday night, August 1. There is no cost to attend the event or pitch a tent. Tailgate with us into the night Saturday and swap flying and riding stories making new friends and rekindling old friendships. While we cannot furnish alcohol for the event, you may BYOB on premises.
ROAD RIDE – Bicycle Road Ride Sunday morning, August 2, starting at 9:00 am.
FOOD TRUCK- The Jack Wagon will be offering food and drinks for purchase onsite at the airport from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm Sunday.

On the 37-mile ride we will climb several mountains, cross Route 187 twice (once in Durell, and another time near Spring Lake), descend to the river valley along the gorgeous French Asylum loop, climb through Rienze, out to New Era, then out to Evergreen, and back down to the airport via Liberty Corners.
