Hello to all of you, from all of us behind the organization of this year’s coming fly-in!!! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and your new year has been off to a great start!
We’re happy to provide you with important updates and additional information so that you can begin to plan to join us this year!
First, to recap from our previous post, officially, we are hosting the fly-in beginning Wednesday, June 1st, and concluding on the night of Saturday, June 4th, 2022. However, you may notice a couple extra days added into the tentative schedule below (Tuesday and Sunday), but this is only optional and just a recommendation for the pilots and at the discretion of the new board.
Location of the Fly-in
The fly-in will be at Bulverde Airpark (1T8) just 26 miles north of San Antonio, TX, and 74 miles southwest from Austin.
Flight School/FBO Services
Anderson Aviation TX is looking forward to being your friendly host FBO and supporting you with all of our aviation needs during our stay there.
Pilots, please check out our FBO FAQ page before contacting Anderson Aviation with your questions.
That said, here are additional information you may want to be aware of….
There are two airports nearby for those who choose to fly airlines: The first is San Antonio International Airport (SAT) which are served by several airlines. The second is Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) which are also served by several of the same or different airlines.
Of these two airports, SAT is the closest (26 miles), followed by AUS (74 miles).
Both airports also have various car rental companies for your car rental needs. You can Google search the different companies and decide which one best fits what you’re looking for.
We have designated two hotels:
– $100/night (1 Bed) or $110/night (2 Beds)
— $120/night (1 Bed) or $123/night (2 Beds)
Both prices quoted above at the time of this publication (4/7//2022) are non-refundable prices.
We list these two places from which we were able to get a direct quote online (we advise to shop around for quotes at these two hotels), and to encourage our fly-in participants to stay close together and get more acquainted with each other. Of course, if you should prefer to lodge elsewhere, you are free to do so whether it be with family, friends, at an airbnb, or even camping. We just want you to come join us and have fun wherever you choose to stay!
