Time: 9am-5pm

The Tradition of Fall Aviation Day continues Saturday, October 12th.
The Cambridge Valley Flying Club will host its’ Fall Foliage Fly-in/Aviation Day at Chapin Memorial Field (1B8) 177 Plaines Rd. one mile north of Cambridge, NY just off rt. 22. What better way to experience our beautiful and unique fall season.
The Fall Aviation Day has truly become a tradition for the Columbus Day weekend. Last year, even though Saturday was a washout and we had to use the Sunday rain date, attendance was quite large.  Admission is free to all.

CVFC members will be flying and displaying their aircraft. They will talk with attendees about the experience of flying and explain all about the Cambridge Valley Flying Club (incorporated in 1963 it is one of the oldest flying clubs in the Northeast)

Weather permitting, Bill Natale will put on an aerobatic display in his biplane and Bill Whitehouse will be flying is gyrocopter.

Want an airplane ride? You just may be able to talk a CVFC pilot into taking you up. It seems to happen a lot. If you wish to make a donation to the George Chapin Scholarship Fund, it would be greatly appreciated.

Of special interest this year will be the ever increasing number of antique aircraft now based at Chapin Field. Airplanes from the 1940’s and ‘50’s have been making Chapin Field their home. Many of these aircraft have come to Cambridge to be repaired and restored by resident airplane/powerplant mechanics Bill Natale and Bob Greene.

General aviation pilots from all over the East fly in for a day of aviation camaraderie, food and fun. Pilots simply love to show off their prize
