Idaho Transportation Department’s Division of Aeronautics will sponsor the fifth annual McCall Family Fly-In August 11-13. Once a safety program for pilots and their aircraft, the fly-in, held in McCall, Idaho, has evolved into an activity that attracts flying enthusiasts from throughout the region for a weekend of aviation exhibits, educational and safety seminars and entertainment.
This year’s activities will include a display of antique and unique airplanes, aircraft rides for youth, flybys and education and training opportunities for pilots. Pilots also can participate in Wings, a pilot safety program, and PACE (Pilot and Aircraft Courtesy Evaluation).
The weekend also will feature a behind-the-scenes tour of a fire center and McCall Airport, contests, live music, a Boy Scout merit badge clinic and a pancake breakfast on Sunday. The McCall Family Fly-In, which has become a summer staple in Valley County, is open to the public. Fees may apply for some activities.
The fly-in is a wonderful event for pilots, aviation buffs and the public. McCall’s central location offers Family Fly-In guests the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of other activities in Valley County, including the Donnelly Huckleberry Festival, the Valley County Fair, the Cascade Swap Meet, local hot springs and world-class fishing and rafting on Payette Lake and area rivers. So whether you’re all about aviation or a tourist traveling through, visit the McCall Family Fly-In and fun in Valley County!
