September fly-in to take off in Ruston
However, as most EAA members build their own aircraft, Spivey explained many of the planes do not have transponders to communicate with the tower. So the organization decided to move the event to the Ruston Regional Airport.
“Ruston has more traffic than Monroe, but it’s mostly single-engine airplanes,” Spivey said. “We’re looking forward to it. There are going to be a lot of interesting airplanes to admire.”
Spivey said a showcase event would be held, which would allow pilots who choose to fly around the airport and give a low approach. Another event would be a spot-landing contest.
