The 2017 Midnight Sun Fly In is almost here and the host committee is in the throes of last-minute preparations. We couldn't pull off this exciting event without the generous support and assistance of our sponsors, so we'd like to thank them all in advance and invite them to join in the activities over the weekend.
Shaw Direct, a generous sponsor of the Midnight Sun Fly In, will have special deals and giveaways at its tent at the Fly In this weekend. Remember to stop by!
