Fly-In returns to Rio Creek

You might confuse Rio Creek Airport with O’Hare or LaGuardia this weekend when it hosts its annual Fly-In. Several airplanes will land onto the turf runways during the day-long event which also includes an antique tractor and car show, food, music, and kids activities. The fly-in serves as the Rio Creek Aviation Foundation’s biggest fundraiser for not just the upkeep of the grounds but also for its scholarship. It has provided three $1,000 scholarships to young aviation enthusiasts in recent years according to foundation member Bill Roethle.

This year’s Rio Creek Fly-In takes place on July 3rd from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The Rio Creek Aiport was established in the early 1970’s by Don Walter and celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2018.
