Pick up a Passport

    Get your free Passport at any participating airport. Passports will be available beginning on July1, 2013. The Passport booklet will have a page dedicated to each of the airports with a runway diagram and general information about each airport.

Validate airport visits

    Each airport visit must be validated. When flying into a participating airport, follow the instructions on that airport’s Passport page as to where to go to validate the visit. Each airport will have an official stamp or sticker to place over the top portion of their page.

    Licensed pilots, student pilots, and their immediate family members may get Passports validated.

    Many of the airports will have a representative available to validate your visit. Please make every effort to visit attended airports in accordance with their published hours of operation.

    Unattended participating airports will have special instructions listed on their Passport page, with self-validation options available.

    A contact person is listed for each airport to give information and help to visiting pilots. If you have any questions or problems at any airport at the time you fly in, please phone the contact listed for that airport.

Drive-In Options

    Some of our participating airports have special features. Some are towered, while others have short, rugged airstrips. Although the point of the Challenge is to fly, our utmost concern is pilot safety. If you don't have a transponder, or simply don't feel comfortable flying into a towered airport or short strip, you may drive to it and have your Passport validated.

     thParticipants may elect to drive-in to the October 5 event as well.

Dates for Flights

    All flights must take place between July 1 and September 30, 2013. We are featuring a longer date-range this year, to allow more time to visit participating airports.
