(Due to COVID-19, the Abel Island Fly-In has been cancelled for 2020.  However, the Abel Island airfield will be open from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm for any planes that would like to fly in.  There will be no food or grilling, but pilots may socialize around the planes.  Please wear a mask when not social distancing.)

The Event

Experience the fun of landing on a well-maintained 2,600 foot turf runway running down the center of an island in the Mississippi river or land your plane on the Mississippi river and pull up on a sandy beach.  

What to Bring?

Bring your own meat to grill, a covered dish, table settings, and drinks.  We will provide the grills, tables, coffee, and water.  We also offer a limited number of our special smoked chicken legs for those unable to carry their own food.

Ample space is available for float planes  to dock or beach.
