2013 Convention ReCap
This year's 2013 Fly-In Convention in Scottsdale was perhaps our best one yet! There was record attendance with 320 registrants, 37 vendors, 65 aircraft, and everyone arriving and departing safely.
The Desert Ridge Marriott was a wonderful location in the Sonoran Desert with the McDowell and other mountain ranges rising from the desert floor. The weather was beautiful with most days in the high 70’s and low 80’s and not a drop of humidity!
The speakers, presentations and resources were again top notch this year. A number of them out are provided below, along with the preliminary details for next year's convention. We'll see you there!
