Arlington Airshow

The weather this year could not have been more perfect. Sunny and 70 made for a nice flight and beautiful day at the airshow. Answered many questions about the kitfox, spent some time in the vendor area with John and Phil and enjoyed the nice day.


Here’s a video of the trip up!

Trip to Arlington Flyin

Arlington Airshow

It’s that time again, part of every summer for the last 15 years… The Arlington Airshow has become part of our family’s summer tradition. We go for the entire 5 days, camp with our friends and talk airplanes 24hrs a day!

This was the first year I flew the Kitfox up to the show and when I got there I was invited by John and Debra to park my plane in the factory vendor booth. That was nice of them, and make it nice and convenient to have the plane closer to the campgrounds. I talked with many potential customers and was able to show off the plane as a “builder” completed version.

Kitfox Factory Flyin

With about 20 hours on the plane since I got it, (it has over 100 now) it was time for the first big trip. John & Debra were having a homecoming flyin at the Kitfox Factory in Idaho so Drew and I decided to go see what it was all about. We left Friday afternoon and flew direct non-stop to Homedale ID. We arrived just after dark and setup camp by flashlight.

We spent 2 days checking out other planes, talking to builders / pilots / and interested builders. We took a bunch of flyout trips up and down the river to check out the area and hop rides for people interested in the Kitfox, which made for a nice weekend.

The trip home got a bit exciting as a large weather system had moved into the Pacific NorthWest (as usual) and we faced wind and rain coming up through the Columbia Gorge to get back home. All in all it was a great trip and we look forward to doing it again next summer!

Final leg home

After dropping Cam off in Eugene, the next morning I made the final leg of the trip northward back to Auburn. Mt Rainier provided a welcome sight after all the miles covered.

Route Home

Clear sky’s and smooth sailing were what we found on the way home. We made it all the way back to Eugene OR in one day. Not bad while bucking a headwind across more than half the country and over the Rockies to boot.
