Happy belated Father's Day!

One month has passed since our 2nd annual Go Wheels Up event and I'm not sure how that can be. It seems like just a few days ago we were all enjoying an incredible weekend of community and family fun.

Turnout for the event was unbelievable and in spite of a brief rain shower on Sunday, the event went off without a hitch.

I've never had the opportunity to see an F-16 in action so I had no real expectations. The second the Viper appeared flying directly over show center, I was in love. It was an incredible gift to see it in person and watching the awe on the faces of all those in attendance was priceless.

Community events like these are how we introduce aviation to a new generation. Airplanes and aviation can be transformed from the mysterious to an attainable career path. The children crawling inside the Black Hawk helicopter are future pilots, mechanics, and engineers.

That said, we appreciate the flexibility of all our users during the airshow weekend. We know it can potentially cause inconvenience but when you look at the bigger picture, I think we can all agree that it's worth it.
