Fly-In scheduled to land at VZCRA Oct. 14

The Van Zandt County Regional Airport will be the place to be locally on Saturday, with a wide range of events set to touch down as part of this year’s annual Fly-In event Oct. 14.

The VZCRA Fly-In is scheduled from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., and will include hands on aviation fun for the whole family, a bounce house for children, a car show, prize drawings as well as the Civil Air Patrol breakfast and lunch.

Among the newest additions to this year's event will be the Wills Point Police Department providing child fingerprint and DNA kits.

The annual fly-in, which includes a series of events for both children and adults, has been the latest addition to a lengthy airport revitalization project that has included striping projects, replacement of lighting systems, the installation of a fuel tank and installation of a card reader in 2013, construction of a new terminal building in 2014 and a runway overlay project that was completed in 2015.

The airport was honored as the Most Improved General Aviation Airport at the 30th Annual Texas Aviation Conference in Galveston in 2012.

VZCRA is located at 36671 State Highway 64 just south of Wills Point. Additional information regarding the 2017 fly-in is available by calling 903-873-3381 or visiting
