Virginia Regional Festival of FLIGHT
Suffolk Executive Airport

October 7, 2017
2017 Virginia Regional Festival of Flight will take place in conjunction with the Suffolk Peanut Festival at Suffolk Executive Airport.

The Virginia Aviation Council is pleased to announce that they plan to have their event this year, again in conjunction with the Suffolk Peanut Festival, on Saturday October 7, 2017. Over the coming months updated information will provided on their website. For now, mark your calendar for October 7, 2017 at the Suffolk Executive Airport (KSFQ).

The Virginia Festival of Flight and Fly-In, an annual aviation event held at the Suffolk Executive Airport, will be held next year co-located with the Suffolk Peanut Festival on Saturday October 7, 2017. This event promises to be the most exciting yet. The Festival and Fly-In, presented by the Virginia Aviation Council, will operate along side the Suffolk Peanut Festival. This is Virginia’s only statewide aerospace event of its kind, accomplished through: fantastic opportunities to attract youth and adults to all aspects of the field of aviation; informing attendees of a full range of aviation careers; providing details of ownership; discussing legal parameters; and sharing the many recreation adventures available.

Together, these two events result in creating a family atmosphere full of excitement, entertainment, education, and experiences.

Check out Suffolk’s weather for the festival weekend as we get closer.
