KENMORE FLY IN, MAY 14
Kenmore Air invites you to their 2016 Seaplane Fly-In where they will celebrate 70 years flying the Pacific Northwest.
Kenmore, Washington – March 21, 2016 – Founded in 1946, Kenmore Air has called the quiet shoreline of Lake Washington home for 70 years. They are celebrating this milestone May 14, 2016 with a Seaplane Fly-In. From 10 am – 4 pm, the public is invited to join them at their Kenmore, Washington headquarters.
Partnering with the City of Kenmore, scenic seaplane flights will be available at the Fly-In. Tours will depart from Kenmore Air’s Lake Washington terminal and include thrilling water takeoffs and landings. In addition, you will see aerial views of the University of Washington, Space Needle, Lake Union, and the Ballard Locks.
Kenmore Air also has an internationally renowned maintenance department.
Guided facility tours will be available, including a look at their new Otter Hangar. Completed last year, the new building is large enough to fit even a twin turbine de Havilland Otter on amphibious floats.
Plus, you’ll be able to take your photo up close and personal with a seaplane. Fly-In attendees will have the chance to partake in games, such as cornhole and badminton. And, don’t miss your chance to hit up the local food trucks that will be onsite.
