Annual Fly-In and Car Show is Saturday at Bremerton National Airport

The Port of Bremerton is hosting the annual Fly-In and Car Show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 31, at Bremerton National Airport.

General admission and parking are free.

The morning will start with a pancake breakfast at 7-11 a.m. with Chapter 406 of the Experimental Aircraft Association. All donations support the EAA Young Eagles Flight Indoctrination Program. The EAA Young Eagles will offer free flights to children ages 8-17 from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-3 p.m. The flights will be weather-dependent.

Olde Thyme Aviation will offer biplane rides for $79 a person based on double occupancy. Helicopter rides will also be available from Seattle Air Taxi.

At noon, the Northwest BeechBoys, a local formation flying group, will perform an aerial flyby demonstration for spectators on the ground.

“It is an absolute pleasure to welcome our Bremerton/Port Orchard/Kitsap County neighbors to Bremerton National Airport,” Warren Hendrickson, Bremerton National Airport’s manager, said.

“Look, play, learn, fly, eat — come and see all of the components that make this airport such a great community asset.”

Airlift Northwest, which provides airborne critical care transportation, will have its helicopter on display on the ramp. Aircraft owners and visiting pilots from throughout the Northwest will also display their aircraft on the flight line. Conditions permitting, World War II warbirds are also expected to be in attendance for viewing.

For vehicle enthusiasts, more than 150 classic cars, hot rods and military vehicles will be on display. Those wishing to display their cars can register the morning of the event for $20. Pre-registration is not available.

Food vendors from Wig Wam Pub BBQ, Carter Ice Cream, Kona Ice and Pedal to the Metal Kettle Corn will be at the event. The Airport Diner will also be open with full-menu service. Booths for Spencer Aircraft Supply, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Civil Air Patrol, Kitsap County Community Emergency and Disaster Airlift Response Teams and Kitsap Aircraft Radio Control Society will also be represented at the event.
