On the way to Skyhook 2017

Congratulations!

The largest event attended is the Memorial Day Fly-In “Operation Skyhook”. Member chapters arrive for a weekend of fun, aviation comradery and serious flying competition. The majority of competitors own their aircraft and takes great pride in showing off their most prized possession. The event draws a tremendous number of spectators from the surrounding area, and generous BPA, Inc. members volunteer to give airplane rides – “Young Eagle flights” – to hundreds of enthusiastic kids.

 

We culminate “Operation Skyhook” with an awards banquet at which time trophies are awarded to the members whom have demonstrated their superior flying skills as well as the chapter with the highest accumulated points. There is also an individual “Top Gun Award” for the supreme pilot accumulating the highest number of points. It is a fun time for our members and all in attendance.
