Oh, and Tullahoma Regional Airport/William Northern Field (THA) is pretty gorgeous, too, what with two 5,000-foot asphalt runways and two turf landing strips. AOPA enjoyed a great fly-in at Tullahoma in 2015—and we’re going back to have an even better, expanded event September 13 and 14, 2019.
Expanded content, fresh Friday programming, new educational options, and exciting aerial activities are planned. We will welcome visitors at a Friday morning pancake breakfast beginning at 8 a.m. Throughout the day free seminars and paid ground school workshops will take place. AOPA President Mark Baker will present a Pilot Town Hall meeting at 11 a.m. Area food trucks will arrive and sell an array of food selections from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. At 4 p.m. the Exhibit Hall happy hour begins, followed by a flightline cookout presented by Jeppesen.
Evening highlights include a short takeoff and landing invitational demonstration and a drone aerial night show produced by The Great Lakes Drone Co.
Saturday, we do it all again with the STOL invitational taking place at noon. The fly-in concludes at 4 p.m. Make a weekend of your visit—local activities such as tours of the Beechcraft Heritage Museum, Arnold Air Force Base, and the Jack Daniel Distillery are must-sees.
Plan ahead to enjoy that Southern hospitality at restaurants such as Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House, Piggy’s Barbeque, and One22West (just to name a few; Miss Mary Bobo’s will require reservations).
