We Are Flying to the Kansas Cosmosphere
Why not come with us?

We are going on May 8, 2010!

It is time for our annual fly-out!  This year, we have chosen the Kansas Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Kansas as our destination.  It has been 3 years since we have last been there and by far it was our best fly-out ever!  Why not come along with us?

What is a Fly-Out?

Each year Air Associates organizes a group of pilots, students and friends to a destination where we can do what we love to do, FLY!  Licensed pilots (renters and owners) student pilots and their guests are invited.  If you wish to fly yourself or your own airplane you are welcome to do so.  If you are a pilot and wish to be paired with another pilot we will assign you a second pilot or instructor.  If you are a student and would like to make the trip with an instructor, you will be paired with another student (two students to an aircraft) and an instructor. 

We have reserved many of the aircraft in the Air Associates rental fleet and airplane assignments will be made based on pilot experience and aircraft preference.  Rental costs can be divided among the flying pilots and will receive the block rate.  (Student Pilots, you can count this flight time as cross country training towards your required hours!)

Here is How it Works

  • On May 7th, 2010 @7PM we will have a mandatory pre-flight/safety briefing for all Pilots that will be taking the flight controls.  Even if you plan on bringing your own airplane you must attend the pre-flight/safety briefing.  The briefing will cover all of the details of the trip including cross-country planning, weather, CRM, ADM, pertinent safety issues for the the flight and weight and balance calculations. 
  • May 8th, 2010 @ 6AM we will have a hot catered breakfast for all participants.  Each aircraft will be given a specific departure slot (so we can space the arrivals into KHUT) that will begin at about 7:30AM.
  • Plan on spending 4-5 hours touring the Cosmosphere.  There are many attractions to see, an IMAX movie theater and planetarium show.  (go to for more info!)
  • We will depart KHUT no later than 2PM and plan to be back at KOJC by 4PM.

Costs and other Details

Pilot Registration Fee:  $35.00 (includes pre-flight briefing materials, catered breakfast and ground transportation to and from KHUT)
Guests or Non-Flying Pilot:  $15.00  (includes catered breakfast and ground transportation to and from KHUT)
