Balloons lift off at AirportFest
Treat the whole family to a glimpse of the world of lighter-than-air flight this year at AirportFest during AOPA’s Aviation Summit, Nov. 5 through 7.
Peter O. Knight Airport in Tampa, Fla., will be host to a hot air balloon fly-out and night glow during AirportFest. Watch the dazzling lights of balloons in the night sky at the night glow, one of the many activities at AirportFest giving you an opportunity to celebrate every aspect of aviation, from remote control airplanes to skydiving.
Festivities will include vintage aircraft displays, food, music, and events for children. You can even arrive at AirportFest in style, cruising to the airport in a 110-foot water taxi on the bay. Shuttles also will be running between AirportFest and the Tampa Convention Center.
With so many activities representing the range of general aviation, this year’s AirportFest will prove to be the best airport event in the history of AOPA’s annual convention. So don’t wait, be a part of the future—sign up for AOPA Aviation Summit today!
