2019 APPAL Fly-In Coordinator
APPAL, the Association of owners and pilots of the Lachute Airport invites you to our Fly-in that will take place this year on 03 August 2019.
Giving Back to the Community
This year, the profits from the event will be donated to “La maison de la famille, au cœur des générations d’Argenteuil”; an organization that has for mission “to welcome families and accompany them in all facets of the most beautiful profession in the world; that of being a parent”.
100 Years of Aviation!
In 2019, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first landing in Lachute, that of a Curtiss Jenny in 1919. In addition to the Fly-in, we are joining efforts with the celebration "Our Communities, Our Heritage" which will be on site at the flea market. There will be festivities all weekend, from Friday to Sunday. Come for the Fly-in, Stay for the Bluegrass! Together, we can make this an event to remember!
Aviators' Flea Market
Once again, we will host the Aviator’s Flea Market. If you have goodies to sell, let me know by email at RVA-LACHUTE@VIDEOTRON.CA. We will have a table for you.
Also, if you have a particular aircraft that you would like to exhibit, please notify me. We will reserve you a good spot ... especially if it’s a pre-war treasure.
Looking forward to seeing you in Lachute on 03 August.
