Thank You to Fly-In Volunteers

The AAA/APM Fly-in takes a massive effort yearly to prepare for and execute. It is simply not possible for the small full time staff (4) to accomplish this task. Fortunately we have a loyal and growing number of volunteers who spend their time and talents to help make the AAA/APM Fly-in enjoyable and safe for all attendees. Without them the AAA/APM Invitational Fly-In is simply not possible.

So with apologies in advance to anyone I may have missed, if you enjoyed the 2012 AAA/APM Invitational Fly-In make certain to thank the following individuals for their hard work and dedication when you see them.
