2016 USA Fly-In (East) – April 7th thru April 10th - Melbourne FL

This will be the first TMGA event on the East coast. Jim Lee, the Phoenix USA distributor will be hosting this event at his home base at Melbourne International Airport (MLB) in Florida. MLB  is a Class D airport with lots of advantages: plenty of area for our aircraft, nearby hotels/motels with conference facilities, restaurants, and of course, local attractions e.g. Disneyworld, the Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center, and world-famous beaches for non-flying activities.


Jim says that it’s highly likely that a Space Shuttle runway over-flight (200 foot above the runway), called the NASA Tour, can be arranged. The picture at the right shows Jim’s daughter Rachel setting up on base leg for the fly-by. You won’t get to do this anywhere else in the world!

We’ve timed this fly-in to coincide with the Sun ‘N Fun International Fly-In and Expo for those who want to experience the #2 air event in the USA. The Expo is about 2 hours from Melbourne, or perhaps a short hop to a near-by airfield and then a car shuttle to the event.


The East coast event is only four months away, and we’ll be posting information in the Event section of the Website shortly…so start thinking about coming NOW! If you are one of our non-USA members, think about a flying/family vacation in a world-famous part of the USA. We would love to have you!  [ Melbourne Sign-Up Sheet ]
