Updated: Jun 5






Hello again to all of you, from each of us behind the organization of this year’s coming fly-in!!! Hope life has been treating you kind and 2024 is cruising along great with minimal turbulence!


We’re happy to provide you with important updates and additional information so that you can begin to plan to participate this year! As you probably have noticed, we're now only hosting fly-ins every two years. The next fly-in after this July, will not be until 2026. So if you can help it, you don't want to miss this one coming up in the summer! We will be celebrating our 30th anniversary!!


We are officially hosting the 2024 fly-in beginning on Wednesday, July 17, and concluding on the morning of Sunday, July 21st. A board meeting on Sunday the 21st is optional with the new board.


Location of the Fly-in


The fly-in will be at Danville, Kentucky's Stuart Powell Field (KDVK) just 88 miles southeast of Louisville (KSDF), and 41 miles southwest from Lexington (KLEX). You could also see about driving south from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International (KCVG) which is about 123 miles, or Nashville (KBNA) which is about 193 miles northeast towards Danville.

That said, here are additional information you may want to be aware of….


Airline Services

There are four area airports available for those who are considering arriving by airlines:


Of these four airports, Lexington is the closest (41 miles), followed by Louisville (88 miles).


Car Rental


All four airports also have various car rental companies for your car rental needs. You can Google search the different rental companies and decide which one best fits what you are looking for.


Lodging/Hotel


We went in person and checked out these three hotels. Of the three, Holiday Inn seemed the most "Deaf friendly". They agree to block off 15 rooms (1 to 4 people per room) until July 1st, 2024. (which means on July 2, 2024, the hotel room price will return to normal)

**Note** If you can get a roommate, you can split the cost of the room.

Option 1: Both Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express are under the same contact person and same price per room, per night ($159 - until 7/1/24) Be sure and mention "Deaf Pilot" event to get this price.
