The Georgetown AirFest will not be held in 2015 due to maintenance work at the Georgetown Municipal Airport.
The fifth annual Georgetown Airfest was held on November 8, 2014 from noon to 5 p.m. The Georgetown Municipal Airport is in Georgetown, Texas, located 25 miles north of Austin on Interstate 35.
For the first time in Georgetown, see the Ford Tri-Motor, a 1929 metal aircraft known as the “Tin Goose” that was the first mass-produced airliner. Book rides in the Ford Tri-Motor owned by the EAA at the Georgetown Municipal Airport November 6 – 9.
Get up close to WW II-era warbirds like the P-51 Mustang “Pecos Bill” fighter plane, the Douglas R4D Skytrain, and the C-47 Southern Cross, an Army version of a DC-3. Also featured is Georgetown’s own warbird, the 1945 Devil Dog B-25 bomber. Climb inside and tour the R4D, C-47, or B-25 for a small fee.
Check out a gyro-copter, gliders, and a police helicopter. Watch the precision formation flying team Falcon Flight perform fly-overs at 2 p.m..
See a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter and take a ride for a fee. Pilot’s Choice Aviation will be offering low-cost flights for anyone who wants to experience the thrill of flight. And the EAA Young Eagles program will offer free flights to youth ages 8 – 17 while seats are available. (Young Eagles flights will be 8 a.m. to noon on Nov. 8.)
Watch radio-controlled aircraft demonstrations and see many other planes on display on the taxiway. Rides in many planes will be offered for a fee. Youth may be able to fly at no cost with the EAA Young Eagles program.
Admission to the AirFest is free. (Attendees are encouraged to bring a canned food donation for The Caring Place.)
The Georgetown AirFest is sponsored by the City of Georgetown with funding from the Georgetown Airport fund and the Georgetown Convention and Visitors Bureau, and made possible through the energy and commitment of volunteers from the Georgetown aviation community.
We encourage the public and the press to photograph and videotape the event and the various aircraft in the public access areas. Anyone wishing to photograph specific aircraft, might wish to ask the aircraft crew for permission and/or access.
Photography and videotaping are not permitted in “hot” areas where aircraft are moving. Such areas are clearly marked and we appreciate your cooperation in order to ensure your safety and that of others.
