Flite Fest 2015 Recap

by FliteTest | August 3, 2015 | (11) Posted in Just Fun

We recently wrapped up our favorite weekend of the year, Flite Fest! This 4 day fly-a-thon is something we work very hard to organize and two years in a row the community has blown us away with attendance.

Pilots from all over the world were represented along with many more vendors. We didn't think after last year this could get any bigger. You proved us wrong!

Getting to meet all of you is what we look forward to. Flying together and making memories makes all the insane planning more than worth it. 

This event is as much yours as it is ours and we thank you for making the effort to come and hang out with us!

We couldn't have done this event if it weren't for our volunteers. You are all amazing humans!

I may have moved out of Ohio, but I'm the last to say there's nothing to do there :) Heck every time I visit I wind up with less than 1/3rd of the things we want to do getting done because there's so MUCH to do. Great world class museums, amusement parks, and nature parks are just the tip of the iceberg! I admit I don't know the Akron Canton area very well, but Cleveland is only an hour or so away and just dripping with stuff that fits just about any set of interests. With a bit of research I'm sure a bunch of neat stuff around A-C can be uncovered as well. Even in deep south Ohio where it gets into Appalachia there are tons of things to do if you make a little bit of effort to ask around and do some exploring. Find out what your parents are into and do a little research - I'm sure you can find things that appeal to them in Ohio. Unless they just plain don't like to travel :D
