The Australian General Aviation Alliance (AGAA) is hoping the enduring spirit of passionate aviators will make another success of AusFly.

The three-day national fly-in is scheduled for Narromine, NSW on 17-20 October, and is aimed at all aviators that make up the broader definition of general aviation.

"AusFly is a relaxed, traditional Aussie fly-in event where aircraft owners, pilots, builders, industry supporters and enthusiasts come along and soak up the true spirit of Australian general aviation," said Sport Aircraft Association of Australia (SAAA) spokesperson Stuart Hills.

"AusFly is a non-commercial event focused on all aviation supporters, where ever you come from, to get together and have a tonne of fun.

AGAA is determined to keep the event focused on the people, so have concentrated on static and flying displays, seminars and industry exhibitors.

"This is the opportunity to get up and close with aircraft, discover an amazing part of Australian aviation history at the Narromine Aviation Museum, and simply catch up with fellow aviators and like-minded people," Hills said.

"The planning for 2019 is going exceptionally well and we expect many exciting announcements over the coming months of what to expect."

Organisers are also planning a range of social events including an arrival evening BBQ, departure breakfast for a gold coin donation, all highlighted by a Dinner under the Stars. 

In keeping with the spirit, entry to AusFly has been set at a gold coin donation for all participants and spectators. There will be food and drinks available to purchase from Narromine Gliding Club, Narromine Aero Club and on-site food vans.

AusFly is schedule for just four weeks after Airventure Australia, which will be held at Parkes, just 100 km south of Narromine, making NSW's western plains for one month the general aviation hub of Australia.
