Check this photo out! This is a rare shot of Elvis boarding the inaugural Allegiant flight from ATW to Las Vegas in August 2008. Note the old ATW logo on the turboway passenger ramp! Monday is our ninth anniversary of our Las Vegas route, and we’re still flying to Vegas twice a week. Book a flight to the City of Lights: http://bit.ly/1XwJbcV #TBT
We’re back with the second video in our training series for Pulling for Honor Saturday, Sept. 9! This video focuses on strength training. This event is open to the public, and families are welcome! It’s your chance to visit the airport and see 20 aircraft up close. (Note: The rope Alex is working with is not the actual rope we will use to pull the plane. Our rope is a 150-pound monster – wait until you see it!) http://bit.ly/2rph7kV

Don’t panic if you see emergency responders at the airport Saturday, Aug. 12! We will be conducting our triennial emergency preparedness drill. Every three years, we practice what we would do in a large-scale emergency situation, coordinating with many area agencies, to help us prepare for an actual emergency.
Our final numbers are in! During the week of EAA - The Spirit of Aviation AirVenture, there were 681 aircraft parked at Appleton Airport – a 16% increase from 2016! Plus, we had 25 campers at our new Camp Flying Fox. Here’s a photo of one of the most-talked about planes on our airfield – the HondaJet. It was here all week giving rides. We can’t wait to see everyone back next year!
Pulling for Honor, an exciting fundraising opportunity benefiting Old Glory Honor Flight, is less than a month away!

We're building a solar carport in our short-term parking lot! It will cover 80 parking spots, which means cooler cars in the summer and no snow to brush off your car in the winter. Plus, the solar panels on top of the carport will generate electricity to reduce our power consumption in the terminal. Please pardon our construction until we complete this project in October.
