    Fifth Annual Windy City Warbirds & Classics
    Fox Valley Aero Club WARBIRD
    Thu, June 21, 2018 — Sat, June 23, 2018

    UPDATE: On-line registration is now closed as of 6/17.  However, if you have not registered and want to attend, no problem!  We will be accepting walk-in Pilot Registration at the event, and can take cash or check for payment. Pilot registration at the event is $45.  

    Fox Valley Aero Club proudly announces our fifth annual Windy City Warbirds & Classics Event. We invite all pilots that own models meeting type and IMAA size requirements to join us for four days of flying at the fabulous Fox Valley Aero Club flying field.

    The event covers 3 days of flying on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with an open fly day on Sunday.  All WCWC participants are welcome to stay and fly on Sunday. No aircraft restrictions on Sunday only. We feature both paved (50' x 800') and grass (100' x 850') runways, an unobstructed flight pattern, large pit area, six flight stations, a pavilion with nine battery charging stations, electricity and space for camping and RVs (no hook ups). Additionally, we have nightly aircraft storage with on-site security. The flying site is minutes away from resturants, shopping, hotels and a local hobby shop.

    This year as part of the 5th Annual Warbirds & Classics Event, we are going to highlight 100 years of the British Royal Air Force (RAF), the world’s first and most famous independent Air Force. This highlighting of British war planes will be in addition to all the Warbirds and Classics that are normally at our event. Our event T-shirt this year will feature a graphic of famous RAF planes. They are available to purchase with your on-line registration, or also at the event. See Photo section here for a preview of the event T-shirt.

    On Thursday night we will feature a pilot's appreciation dinner sponsored by two of our members. On Friday evening, pizza will be available for purchase at the field, so stay around and enjoy the camaraderie with fellow pilots. At dusk on Saturday morning we will open the field to all pilots with WWI era aircraft for a "Dawn Patrol" flight. Bring your camera as this will be a great photo opportunity. Also Saturday we will have a Pilots Dinner and Awards banquet at the field. Times for all events will be listed on this site soon.
