It’s Time for Summer Fly-Ins!

May 2013

Mitsubishi-MU2For pilots, boaters, and any outdoor adventurer, summer is the best season. We’ve been waiting all year, and it’s finally here, with clear skies, calm seas, and beautiful weather.

At Aircraft & Marine Insurance Agency, customer service is our top priority. But sometimes there’s no better way to serve our customers than to get out of the office and into the field, meeting pilots, learning about new aviation technology and trends, and building relationships with clients, colleagues, and fellow aviation enthusiasts. We’ll be participating in several events this summer, and we hope to run into some familiar faces.

2013 Cirrus Owners & Pilots Association Migration, Fly-In, & Expo
June 27-29, 2013

A major event for Cirrus pilots, the COPA Migrations, Fly-In, & Expo has it all — a fly-in, trade show, seminars, and social events. This year, the event is held in Mobile, Alabama. Visitors can tour the Continental Motors factory, where Cirrus engines are manufactured. In honor of this year’s beautiful Gulf Coast location, event organizers have arranged for  deep-sea fishing trips, kayak excursions, a SUBA dive on a sunken aircraft carrier, a golf tournament, trips to the Navy’s largest aviation museum, and more. Find more information at the COPA Migration website. Aircraft & Marine’s Justin Wulf will be at the event, handling the check-in process, so be sure to say hi!

MU-2 Fly-IN 2013 
July 26-27, 2013

This year, the annual MU-2 Fly-In is hosted by Jet Air Group, one of our longtime clients. Held in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the fly-in is scheduled for the weekend before the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, a huge aviation event in northeast Wisconsin. The Mitsubishi MU-2 is a twin-engine turboprop, and it’s widely considered one of Japan’s most popular aircraft. It’s attracted a loyal following, which makes the annual fly-in a very fun event. Highlights include a reception, presentations, “queen of the fleet” awards, and a big hangar party with live music and pig roast. Aircraft & Marine Insurance Agency will have a booth at the show, and we’re proud to co-sponsor the dinner. Check out Jet Air’s website for more information.
