Smithville Fly-In - 2013

Hop, skip, drive, or FLY over to Smithville on Saturday, May 11th, from 11am-1pm for the Smithville Fly-In at the 84R Smithville-Crawford Municipal Airport, Bastrop County's one and only airport.

You can explore the airport facilities and visit with the pilots, enjoy games and activities for the kids, test your skills with the flying simulation computers in the Pilot's Lounge, and check out the judged Airplane Beauty Contest.

You can go on a helicopter ride for only $20/person (please note: kids ages 4 & up must go by themselves), and kids ages 8-12 will have the opportunity to learn to fly during the FREE Young Eagles Ground School Training at 12:30pm.

My family went last year, and we had a great time! The kids got wooden airplanes to fly and enjoyed checking out all of the cool planes. This little one was their favorite...

Yeah, the kids weren't really in the mood for pictures...

A hamburger and hot dog lunch will be available for only $7/plate, which includes sides, a drink, and dessert. For more info about the Fly-In or the Airport, click here.
