14th Annual Heli Spring

Held annually, this event is the premiere helicopter event that kicks off our prime flying season here in the mid-Atlantic. Fly your brains out all day and all night from sunrise to sunset. From beginners to Pros, all are welcome to fly.  Also, don’t forget to challenge a friend or even a Pro to a friendly drag race or speed run in a “Run what you Brung” closed course, no experience necessary.  Raffle and Pilots dinner Saturday (dinner included in landing fee). Primitive camping allowed and RV hookups available at additional cost. Rain or shine, come join us for one of the best fun-fly’s you’ll ever experience.

May 2  – May 5
Landing Fee: $40

Warbirds & Classics Over Fredericksburg

FARCC presents Military Warbirds And Classics Over Fredericksburg. Any size warbird or classic allowed, but must be a scale representation of a full scale aircraft.

Two flight lines assure lots of action. Raffle and Pilots dinner Saturday (dinner included in landing fee). Flying allowed until dusk. Primitive camping allowed and RV hookups available at additional cost. Surely, one of the best Warbird events in the mid-Atlantic region.

Fall Heli Mowdown

A little tired from the seasons flying and partying? Well then the Mowdown is just the right Fun-fly for you. It’s the little brother of the Spring Fling that’s just as fun but more relaxed. Bring your Helicopters, sweaters, and dancing shoes (people that have been here know what that means,lol). So come join us and help wind down the flying season with more all day and night flying.
