When the new airport FBO (fixed base operator) Chippewa Aerospace dba Elite Aviation Services came to Vance Brand Airport in Longmont last year, president Julie Meyers gave a presentation to the Longmont Airport Advisory Board and Longmont City Council. At that presentation she told them their airport business intended to be community friendly and to offer events at the airport for both the flying and non-flying public.
One of the events they planned to offer were outdoor movies at the airport and to partner with local businesses as sponsors. Next month, they will kick off their premiere outdoor movie event with the showing of the movie "Airplane!" on Father's Day weekend, Saturday, June 14th at 8pm. The movie will be outdoors and projected toward the large Fly Elite Aviation hangar.
Reservations are required (call 303-774-8081) and is limited for this first showing. The event is free, but you can purchase food from Flight Deck Grill and Fly Elite Aviation will have snacks for sale. Fly-in or drive-in and bring a lawn chair or blanket for comfort.
Fly Elite Aviation would also like to thank Miller Music for lending their audio equipment and Staples for providing event fliers. There will also be a guest speaker from Hair 4 Hounds, in support of the Longmont Humane Society.
