The 45th Annual COPPERSTATE Fly-In and Education Expo will be held October 27 and 28, 2017 at the Falcon Field Airport located at McKellips and Greenfield in Mesa, AZ.

Gates open at 8:00am both days and close at 5:00pm on Friday and 4:00pm on Saturday. Cost is $15 per day or $25 for both days for adults with 18 and under free.

Each year there are over 500 aircraft available for display. There will also be over 90 exhibitors on site including aircraft manufacturers introducing new models of aircraft, avionics and other aviation goods and services. COPPERSTATE is sure to provide a fun day to get familiar with aviation. Be sure to take a break and visit our food court.

Several aviation schools will be represented so if you are thinking about learning how to fly, this is a great time to talk to people that can make that dream real.

COPPERSTATE is a non-profit organization with its focus on education in the aviation industry. Originally started as a show for homebuilders of aircraft, it is now more inclusive covering all areas of aviation from building your own aircraft to establishing a career in aviation.

If you like all kinds of aircraft, come out and have a good day at COPPERSTATE. For more information,  go to
