5MAY24 / 1630 [ 6 Gates Left] Enter Summertime: a Sarasota Fly-In Event!

@Avaitor1 SUMMON

Hello everyone! I haven’t hosted an event in a while, so it’s time to do another one! To celebrate the approach of summer, I’d love to host an event in one of my favorite airports! SRQ! I fly there every year for my summer vacation, and the city of Sarasota is beautiful!

Background Info

Sarasota Bradenton International airport is the main airport for the city of Sarasota on the west coast of Florida! Sarasota is a rapidly growing mid size city with a population of 57,376! Downtown is located right on the bay, which if you cross, you can find Longboat Key, Siesta Key, and of course my all time favorite, in which my beach house is located… Lido key!

KSRQ Airport handles around 3-4 Million passengers every single year!

Although most of the airports traffic comes from GA aircraft, specifically from one of the various flight schools on the airport… the airport also has a 13-Gate terminal, used by Air Canada, Allegiant, American Airlines, American Eagle, Avelo, Breeze, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Sun Country, and United Airlines. The airport is also frequently visited by USAF and USCG c130s, and occasionally Air Force One! Historically, this airport has been served historically by many airlines, including AirTran, WestJet, Air Canada Rouge, Eastern, and so many more.


Airport Diagram (Expires May 16th)

  • I am not responsible for violations
  • Use Unicom correctly if there is no ATC
  • If ATC is active listen to their instructions
  • Please do not depart before your departure time.

How this Fly-In will Work:
We should all be in SRQ in between 2024-05-11T20:30:00Z2024-05-11T21:30:00Z. The start and end times are in the middle of the hour so that we can arrive early, or late… as we should all aim for 2024-05-11T21:00:00Z. Whichever route you choose to do, you have a set departure time that you have some flexibility on. I recommend departing at or 30 minutes after your departure time.

Welcome to the community! Your signed up with a departure time of 2024-05-11T18:55:00Z

Small bump for the IFATC folks!

I will arrive at B14, is it okay if I fly from KMCO in the generic livery, its my made up airline that has a hub at KMCO.

What aircraft? B14 has a pretty cool airline/route for this area, so I would like to keep it until last minute to see if anyone will take it, so I’ll eventually put you on if it’s open still, but for the time being, can I put your parking as like an FBO or something? If your in an a320 or something along those lines I’m sure it will work
