Don't be!! This is the event for you!
Here is your chance to go back to the basics and experience flight as it should be experienced! Fly along birds (at very very slow speed) with the famous Piper Cub J-3 Single Engine plane (Cessna 172 or comparable also welcome, but we recommend you try the Cub for the Stick and Rudder experience)
