Description
Congratulations to our June Featured Member, Simsbury Flying Club!


Simsbury Airport is one of the oldest airports in the State.  It's the site of the annual Simsbury Fly-In and Car show, which is  the largest event of its kind in the northeastern USA.  Each September, they bring 15,000 spectators to town, and display over 750 beautiful airplanes and cars in a country fair atmosphere.  More than 150 businesses of all kinds market their services with exhibits, sponsorships or advertising.  You can see their show in full detail at www.simsburyflyin.com

 

The Simsbury airport is operated by the Simsbury Flying Club, an all-volunteer non-profit corporation.  It is perhaps the only public-use airport in the country that is operated entirely by volunteers.   Entirely self-supporting, the Simsbury Flying Club receives no financial support from local, state or federal governments.  Their financial support comes from members who pay monthly dues, profits from the sale of aviation fuel, and business tenants who occupy their premises.

 

They are a business  hub.  The airport is home to a busy flight school……Future Flyers of Connecticut…..which provides primary flight training as well as training for advanced pilot ratings.  Simsbury Aircraft Maintenance provides full repair and maintenance services for all kinds of aircraft.  A number of businesses keep their aircraft there, including Mike Alan, the WTIC-AM air traffic reporter.  Corporate aircraft and helicopters frequently come and go, along with charter flights from distant airports.

 

Please consider participating in the Simsbury Fly-In and Car Show.   It's a great venue for marketing your business.   You can exhibit your products, or be an advertiser in our beautiful 52-page Event Program.  Sponsorships are available, and provide a number of added marketing benefits.  For more information, please contact Bill Thomas at 860-693-4550 or wdthomas421@gmail.com. 

 

The airport would love to have you visit!  Come sit in the grass and watch the airplanes come and go!
