Default First in Flight Jet Rally May 20-24 2020

The time is approaching again folks. The First in Flight Jet Rally will be taking place May 20-24, 2020 again at the Wilson Industrial Air Center, Wilson NC. All registrations, Tent Rentals and more will be done online through our web-site. registration expected to begin first week of March, but we wanted to put dates out now. We've had a ton of FB inquires and phone calls coming in asking for dates. Our website will be getting updated very soon, but you can get all hotel info now on our site. www.firstinflightjets.com

I do want to give you guys a bit of good,,,no,,,, GREAT NEWS! This years Pilot Award Banquet will again be INSIDE. we were fortunate enough to find an event venue located just 1 mile from the airport. Ice cold Air Conditioning, plenty of powder rooms and no more echo's like the old hanger. We'll have more info on that later, but I just signed the contract last week. So we're good to go. Its a 5 minute trip located right off Airport Road.

Word on the street is we have some new vendors coming this year! We'll share that with you as well once confirmed. We also plan to have the DW trailer located along vendor row as last year. That will keep pit row freed up for those massive planes you guys are pushing through.

Josh Bunn had the honors of picking out this years jet to be featured on the 2020 T-Shirt. That's a secrete for now, but it's gonna be cool!

We'll be honoring two of our fallen family members this year. Andy Kane who we all loved so much, and Marshall Sanderson. Andy was so well known in our hobby and it goes without saying he was a true ambassador to the hobby. No matter where he was or what kind of event he attended, Andy always made it better. Marshall was one of our FIF staff workers who has devoted so much time working our event for years. He has provided air traffic control on the radio for us along with Clyde Long for the past 10 years. We'll bring more info on our plans to honor them.

Look for our website to be updated soon. We'll get tent info and more posted for your needs. If you plan to attend as a vendor of need sponsoring details now, feel free to call/email.

So get ready folks!!!! the 2020 FIF Rally we be here before ya know it!!!!

OK guys. Been getting a bunch of text and phone calls about the event and when registration will be open. We're gonna follow the same schedule as last year. Online registration will begin first week of March. Most likely March 4th.
All registration/rentals will be done online through our web-site.

Vendors set up same as last year. You must be a vendor to be located in the vendor section. Sorry,,,, paying more for tent doesn't get you a better spot!


More news to come!

Calling All Pilots!!! It's March 4th,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,!!!!!!
Registration is NOW OPEN! The First in Flight site is up and running, and the orders have already started pouring in!!!
Just go to www.firstinflightjets.com where you can easily get registered, order tents, shirts, RV slots and more. Hotel info, restaurant information and sponsorship info is all available as well. everything is set up in a very simple Shopping Cart format. When you place an order you will receive confirmations.

Please note that T-Shirt orders are a separate item this year. Both short and long sleeve are available.


Interested in Hats or Sun Visors? Shoot me an email or text if you would like to buy one. Depending on interest, we may move forward with it. Art work would include the First in Flight wording shown below, minus the aircraft. You can only get so much on a hat or visor's front! I plan to get a few made for staff members and myself, but depending on interest we may have several more made up. Tis is something we can add to the website if needed.

We have already heard from a few new vendors that plan on attending. We're very excited about that! And remember, ONLY VENDORS are allowed to pay the vendor fee to get priority tent spots by the start up area!

And just in case you havent heard,,,,, This years Pilot Banquet has been move back inside! We have reserved a great indoor venue located very close to the airport. Best part, its AIR CONDITIONED!!!!!!!! The vendue only take a very fews minutes to get to, being located right off Airport Road. No more echos or beads of sweat dripping on your plate!

Want to be a sponsor for First in Flight? Those opportunities are located on the web site as well. Award Sponsorship will be open in the coming days. Please take time to look at our web sites Sponsors Page. All sponsors from last years event are still proudly listed. All sponsors at this years event will be posted and remain throughout the coming months.

We'll be bringing more info in the coming days, but let's get this party started. As always, feel free to call / text me with any questions or concerns.

Seeing a lot of new names for first time attendees. That's something we always welcome and we're glad to have.
