Mariposa Air Fair and Family Adventure Day 2013

FUN FUN FUN and a beautiful airport to fly into. The approach is just gorgeous and you are surrounded by terrain on all legs of the pattern. Will be a lot of fun!

An exciting fly-in and community event that features a variety of aircraft including Antiques, Warbirds and Experimentals. Gates will be open from 8a.m.-3p.m. Free airplane rides for youth 8-18, Bounce Houses and other fun activities for the kids. For more information you can visit the website at www.1261.eaachapter.org/.

We can coordinate meeting times at the airports where our membership will be departing from and do some formation flying to the event. That is always fun.


A great little northern California fly in event. Lets try to get as many of us there as possible. It would be a great enjoyable opportunity. Also, town is about a ten minute walk from the airport. There are some great little local restaurants there and the people are all friendly.

Let me know if you have any questions. Again, I have room for two in my little Mooney hottie so I can take people with me who will not be flying. Cost sharing is preferred. Other pilots, let us know if you have room in your birdies also.

This will be a great EAA event.

    Nice little Air Fair - Too bad we didn't all agree on a place to meet ahead of time... But my "shotgun" passenger and I had a nice time

    Think we'll pass on breakfast. We wiill lift off around 9am and should arrive just before 10am. We're thinking of heading over to Los Banos for Lunch after if anyone wants to join.

    Hey rob. Lets meet at Reid at 9:15. We can group fly out. Thoughts?

    February 23, 2013

    • Robert g.

      We could try that, but getting out of Reid at a precise time is sometimes problematic. Would be +/-5 mins.

      I'll be flying past Cross Landing Airfield (closed) at approx 8:30am if you're still trying to meet up... LSA N712MF

    The event doesn't mention anything about breakfast so, does anyone want to meet up for coffee in route? I can p/u a pitcher of Starbucks and maybe some donuts the night before, make my son hold them as I do a negative G pushover then meet you guys somewhere on the way up the hill. Maybe Turlock or Modesto? @ Roland. What time are you going to boogy out and head to the coast? FYI, the event is both Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th so, don't feel pressed for time.

    I'll probably have an extra seat for this event. Again, I fly out of Tracy (TCY). We can have coffee at our FBO at 0900 then, get on the road. If anyone else whats to have a java session at Tracy first then, head to Mariposa as a group. I'll spring for the coffee and bagels.

  • Robert g.

    Will be flying out of Reid Hillview... Probably about an 8:00 take off time to arrive about 9am at MPI

  • Robert g.

    Hopefully, you'll schedule a meetup time closer to 9 or 10 to give us time for our morning coffe before flying ;-)
