Labor Day Red Baron Fighter School and Fly-in
In addition to the annual Gardner Kansas Fly-in on Father's Day in June, the GWAA will be

WW1 replica flyers, builders and those interested to get together. We'll have qualified
historians and instructor pilots who will go over the basics of formation flying and basic

lots of room for trailered aircraft. Hangerage is first come first serve.
There's lots of hotels and restaurants and even an outlet mall pretty close - and of
