Casey Camping Fly-In Mission

Stratos Aero is privileged to have the opportunity to take over the administration and the promotion of the Casey Camping Fly-In. This annual event is inline with our mission statement of building a general aviation community like no other and inspiring the next generation of aviation professionals with an emphasis on pilots. Our missions with the Casey Camping Fly-In are as follow:
  • Building the Stratos Aero general aviation community
  • Close the generational gap in the GA community
  • Attract more young and future pilots
  • Encourage & educate GA pilots on bush flying
  • Enjoy a weekend with fellow aviators and aviation lovers

What to Expect at Casey?

The Casey Camping Fly-In is for aviation enthusiasts and nature lovers. You can access Casey by road or by air (obviously). Once in Casey, expect to be in total wilderness, no electricity, no running water and definitely no cell phone signal or Wi-Fi. We are there together to have fun, enjoy the natural environment, talk all things aviation and disconnect from everyday life, and I mean completely disconnected. You’ll have to post your pictures and videos on social media after you leave!

 

Activities

One of the big improvements Stratos Aero is bringing to the 2020 edition of the Casey Camping Fly-In is an array of activities to do individually or as a group to keep you busy all weekend long.

Safety and Security

Safety in the air and on the ground are our number one priority. The Stratos Aero team will have a team of volunteers marshaling aircraft to parking, camping and under the wing camping areas. We also have a team that will offer air traffic advisories and current weather conditions. A general “casey Notam” will be issued in the spring of 2020 with all necessary details.

REGISTRATION

For safety purposes on the ground a limited amount of aircraft can be accommodated for “under the wing camping”, “wild camping” and obviously our Glamping option.
