The annual Calaveras Airport Fly-In/Open House “Air Faire 2017″ will take place this Saturday from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m.
Calaveras County Airport Manager, Kathy Zancanella, was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
This is a free spectator event, in that there is no gate admission. There will be a small fee for vehicle parking below the hill (transportation with rides up the hill will be provided).
The airport is located on Highway 49 at Carol Kennedy Drive, nearly halfway between San Andreas and Angels Camp.
In addition to the airplanes, classic cars and other spectator features will be on display.
Scenic airplane rides will be available on a first come, first served basis for 10 for those up to 18 years old and $20 for adults.
Music will be provided by the Calaveras community band and Mountain RC Flyers will feature radio controlled aircraft.
Food and drink will be available from various vendors and organizations including the Boy Scouts.
