2020 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why was the 2020 event cancelled?

A: Due to the worldwide public safety and economic uncertainties of the COVID-19 crisis, and to protect our guests and volunteers, on April 16th the 2020 Arlington Fly-In was cancelled. The event that was scheduled for August 14-16 did not occur, and instead we shifted our planning to the 2021 event. The Arlington Fly-In Board of Directors wishes to thank all of our sponsors, customers and especially our volunteers, as we adapt our organization to a rapidly changing environment. We hope everyone remains safe and healthy, and we are moving forward with 2021: August 20-22.

Q: I purchased a ticket for 2020, what can I do?

A: We will accept all 2020 purchased tickets for our 2021 event on a 1-1 basis – meaning a pass purchased for 2020 will be equivalent to the same pass this year. In order to take advantage of this you don’t have to do anything. Tickets purchased for 2020 had an advertised no refund policy, and we made exceptions until August 14, 2020, which was the start date of the cancelled 2020 event. No further refunds may be processed for 2020 tickets.

Q: What about my camping space?

A: Purchased camping spaces will automatically roll-over to 2021. If you had a specific camping space in 2020, you’ll have it in 2021. You do not have to do anything to take advantage of this – we will accept your 2020 reservation for this year and block your space so nobody else can reserve it. You do not need to re-register or re-purchase anything. Tickets purchased for 2020 had an advertised no refund policy, and we made exceptions until August 14, 2020, which was the start date of the cancelled 2020 event. No further refunds may be processed for 2020 tickets.

Q: I am a vendor, exhibitor or sponsor – what can I do?

A: A Fly-In representative should have reached out to you to make arrangements, but in general you can expect the same as above – whatever options you have chosen in 2020 will automatically carry-over to the 2021 event unless you decide otherwise.

Q: I am a volunteer – what can I do?

A: First of all – we miss all of you and our Fly-In family! As soon as it is safe to do so, we will be organizing meetings for 2021. Plus we will add some additional team training and fun activities when we can later this year.

Q: How can I support the organization during these times?

A: We’re always looking for skilled volunteers, especially in the facilities area. Sign-up in our Volunteers area. You might consider visiting our online store and purchasing something as well!
