Great Oregon Home Built Fly-In!

Join us at the Cottage Grove Airport this Labor day weekend (September 1-3, 2018) for a three day celebration of experimental/amateur aircraft!

  • Did you know that experimental/home built aircraft were illegal in the US until 1952?!
  • Did you know that Oregon aviators fought throughout the 1930’s and beyond to establish experimental regulations??
  • Did you know that the most successful kit-build aircraft, the RV, was designed and is still manufactured right here in Oregon?

Come fly with us labor day weekend and learn about all this and more at the First Annual Great Oregon Home Built Fly-In!
