Events Overview
BVA features a regular series of exciting events designed to bring aircraft and controllers together in interesting, challenging, and congested airspaces. Events often feature more controllers and pilots than can be found online during an ordinary evening of ATC and often take place outside of our preferred airspace. Whether you're interested in showing off your piloting skills, flying a regional jet for medium-haul flights, or bringing a Cessna into the circuit at a small Class D airport, our event lineup has something for you!

General Aviation Fly-In: The Maine Event

Set the parking brake on the airliner and knock the cobwebs off your favorite general aviation aircraft! The General Aviation Fly-In visits locales across the country that are famous for their scenery and general aviation influence. While anything from a single engine Cessna to a regional jet is welcome in this event, ‘low and slow’ offers the best opportunity to experience the scenery.

During the event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller Class C and D airports, with overlying radar controllers to provide VFR Flight Following and IFR services. Fly VFR closed traffic, practice instrument approaches, or fly VFR or IFR between the featured airports: the choice is yours.

This GA Fly-in features Portland International Jetport (KPWM) and Bangor International Airport (KBGR)Pilots are also encouraged to try out Maine's untowered airports such as Bar Harbor (KBHB), Presque Isle (KPQI), and Millinocket (KMLT).

Local Time: July 9, 2019 2000-2300ET
Zulu Time: July 10, 2019 0000-0300z
