[CANCELLED] 04OCT20 / 1600Z - The Air Capital Fly-in @KICT!


The Air Capital Fly-In!

Hello everybody! I haven’t hosted an event anytime recently, so I figured I’d do one! This is a smaller event, as it has been a while, so it feels like my “first event”. Any feedback on how to improve is encouraged! 🙂

I decided on a fly-in as they are less frequently seen, and its great to have a bustling arrival airport! I ultimately decided to go with my home airport because of its small size, but still a variety of routes.

About Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport

  • it is used as a commercial airport and a ga airport
  • a total of 7 airline fly here from many different places around the US
  • 3 runways, with the largest being able to (theoretically) handle 747s and A380s

Green: commercial
Yellow: standby

Arrival procedures
KICT has no STAR’s, so just be aware of other aircraft when arriving.
Landing runway is 19R/1L or 19L/1R (parallel approaches are allowed. 14/32 is NEVER used for commercial aircraft due to it only being 6000 feet long, as well as no precision approach (it also intersects 19R and 19L, so not practical as it would slow down traffic)
Once you have landed, exit runway as soon as possible to prevent go-arounds.
Taxi to your gate and please do not despawn, I would like to get a group picture 🙂

Just reply with your gate choice and I’ll add you when I can!


I’ll take a Southwest 737-700 from STL please
