Barry Daze 2018

Carolina Barnstormers, Barry Daze Fall Fly-In

Date: 

Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 8:00am to Sunday, May 6, 2018 - 12:00pm

The summer event at Wadesboro, NC in the Carolina Barnstormer's hangar is the larger of their two events per year.  This, because it is open to the public in addition to select members of the gyroplane community.  It has become one of the "must see" events in the Southeastern US. 

Expect to see interesting gyroplanes from all over the Southeast (and beyond), fixed wing aircraft and a variety of projects in various stages of production.  I can personally recommend the Saturday afternoon lunch fare.

Bensen Days is one of the largest and oldest Gyroplane and Rotorcraft events in the US.  It is sponsored by Sunstate Wing & Rotor Club.  For more information on Bensen Days 2018, visit http://www.bensendays.us.com

The event takes place each year at Wauchula Municiple Airport (KCHN) in Wauchula, Florida.  It is generally scheduled the week just just before or just after the Sun-N-Fun Lakeland, Florida general aviation event so enthusiasts may visit both events back-to-back.

Wrens Fly-In 2015 -- Wow!

Wrens Fly-In 2015

Yep, Wow!  This year's fly-in at Wrens, Georgia was the best in years. Fun and safety joined hands with a load of gyroplanes and participants from across the Southeast and even a machine flown in from Connecticut.  I counted at least 6 machines that flew in over 100 miles. Of those 6, at least half flew many times that number of miles.

It's that time again!  Yes, a month AFTER Wrens fly-in (Georgia) and before the cold weather.  The next instance of the fabulous Carolina Barnstormers Fall Fly-In.  Carolina gyroplane hospitality at its very finest.  

Anson County Airport (KAFP) in Wadesboro, North Carolina once again plays host to an invasion of rotorwing aircraft.  Expect groups from Peach State Rotorcraft, Sunstate Wing & Rotor Club as well as other groups across the Southeast to attend.

WRENS is a Fly-in event held at the airport in Wrens, GA (65J) in the fall of each year. It was originally known as Rotors-Over-Carolina (ROC) when it was held in the South Carolina, but moved to Georgia in 1998. As an EAA event, it draws some fixed-wing aircraft, but it has always been primarily a rotorcraft and gyroplane gathering. Wrens typically attracts gyroplane enthusiasts from the Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Carolina rotorcraft clubs.
