A diverse array of aircraft, representing every era of general aviation, will grace the skies above Washington, D.C.’s National Mall on May 11. Triple Tree Aerodrome’s own Spartan Executive will be one of the aircraft participating in this notable event! The Spartan is expected to arrive back at Triple Tree the first weekend of Joe Nall Week.

Watch this exciting event live with thousands of others across the U.S.! This event honors the general aviation industry’s contributions to the nation, coinciding with AOPA’s 85th anniversary in May. Scheduled for May 11 (rain date May 12), the flyover aircraft will begin their journey over D.C. at 11:30 a.m. and will be seen flying over the city from noon to 1 p.m. The event will be live-streamed on AOPA’s YouTube channel

The flyover, consisting of 15 chapters, will depict the history of general aviation in America. Twenty-four groups of aircraft will fly the 88-mile round trip from FDK down the Potomac River, led by AOPA President Mark Baker in his historic Beechcraft Staggerwing.

This unprecedented event will take place within Washington, D.C.’s restricted flight zone, P-56, a first for general aviation aircraft. Onlookers will witness the impressive display above iconic landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Commentary will be provided by AOPA’s Thomas B. Haines and former CNN correspondent Miles O’Brien from the rooftop of the National Museum of American History.
