Northern CA Wing Fly-in & BBQ

August 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Fly in and bbq 

Hello AFW Northern CA members!

I’m excited to announce our Angel Flight West Northern CA Fly-in event, Sat Aug 28th from 11:00 – 3:00 at Byron Airport (C83). This infamous annual event is held in the Patriots Jet Team hangar, full of cold war era jet fighters along with the Patriots’ L-39 team planes. Come join us for an afternoon of BBQ, fun and camaraderie as you’ll have a chance to meet other AFW pilots, Earth Angels and staff from the Angel Flight West office including our Executive Director, Josh Olson and Director of Wing Operations, Ivan Martinez. Byron is an easy destination for flying or driving and is surrounded by lush fruit orchards and the beautiful San Francisco delta waters.

Come join us for this spectacular event which will be in the open air hangar so that we can optimize social-distancing while promoting those great new friendships and acquaintances that can only happen with in-person events such as this. Also featured will be some short presentations on:

  • What you need to know before you fly your first Angel Flight West mission – led by Chief Mentor Pilot, Chris Bennett
  • Safe flying tips for the upcoming fire season
  • Grateful testimonials from AFW patients

For those flying in to join us, please use caution and monitor CTAF carefully when approaching the airport as there will be both skydiving and glider operations likely during your arrival. In order to help us plan for the delicious BBQ food we’ll have on hand, please RSVP at the link below by 8/20. Questions or more info needed? Please feel free to contact me ([email protected]). I hope you can join us for this great annual get-together! Earth Angels are encouraged to attend too – please come join us!
