2018 Mid West Sonex Fly In

Postby planeolbob » Sun Apr 08, 2018 9:25 pm

Hi Everyone,
I had planned to have the MWSFI on May 26th. However, due to a more than full plate here at home I cannot host it this year. As you remember, last year we had a rain out. Ray did a great job hosting. Maybe someone can do it again this year. I hope I can attend. I know this is short notice but that is just what happens sometime.

Blue skies,
Bob Mika

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Our host Bob "Shine On" Mica has a full plate and is unable to host the 2018 MWSFI. Thank you, Bob, for all your hard work in the past.
The torch has been picked up by Rick "NWA Wingman" Wantz, Sonex 367SX, and he has volunteered me, Frank "Captain" Kilmek, Onex 1970T, to help out.
We are based in Fayetteville, Arkansas at Drake Field, KFYV, located in the beautiful Ozark Mountains in northwest Arkansas.
The date is June 2, 2018 starting at 8:00 a.m. and finishing when the last plane departs.
We have our EAA chapters meeting room available located in a WWll era hangar which also houses the Arkansas Air Museum. Next door is the
Military Museum and Rick is working on a discount for those that want to tour both displays.
We plan on burning burgers, brats or dogs along with the usual stuff that goes with it.
If anyone attending would like to speak about safety, flying or building, it would be welcomed and greatly appreciated.
All owners, builders, plans holders, wanna bees and ALL pilots and Planes of any descriptions are welcome to attend.
Hopefully we draw the usual crowd along with other Sonex owners from Oklahoma, Texas ans Mississippi. (Jeff?)
There will be additional information following as time goes on. Warning: If you fly around the area you will be tempted to sell out and move here.
Hope to see you there.

Doubt my plane will be out of “Faze Won” by then, but I am putting it on the calendar. See all then.

2018 Midwest Sonex Fly-in is officially scheduled for June 2nd at Fayetteville, AR Drake Field KFYV! Frank Klimek, Jim McNabb, and myself are happy to do our part to help promote Sonex Aircraft to all that are interested in this great airplane! The Midwest Sonex Fly-in has meant a great deal to me over the years and help encourage me along while I was building my Sonex. A big thanks goes out to all those that those that helped put the Midwest Sonex Fly-in together over the years!

Originally we had hope to be able to offer discount admission to the Arkansas Air and Military Museum, but due to a wedding scheduled the same day, tours are not going to be possible. But the good news is we are still able to have 2018 Midwest Sonex Fly-in in our normal EAA chapter 732 meeting area at the back of the museum where we have plenty of room for lots of Sonex aircraft to park.

Looking forward to seeing all our Sonex friends and making new ones!

Not that Fayetteville Drake Field KFYV isn’t beautiful enough, I just wanted to let everyone know about some of my favorite Ozark back-country airport that are worth visiting the weekend of Midwest Sonex Fly-In. Most of these places have restaurants and camping available too. So, start making your plans to attend this years Midwest Sonex Fly-In and while you’re at it you might as well make a weekend of it and take advantage of what the Ozarks has to offer the flying community!
