Byrd’s Spring Backcountry Fly-In 2022
May 5 - May 8
Join us for the 18th annual Spring Backcountry Fly-In at Byrd’s!
Enjoy breathtaking scenery in the Arkansas Ozarks. All pilots and aviation enthusiasts are welcome.
Byrd’s features two grass runways beside the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Our 1900-foot strip is suitable for many single-engine airplanes, while our 1000-foot strip is ideal for bush planes, powered parachutes, and trikes. Pilots are encouraged to monitor and announce on channel 122.9.
Bring gear for non-flying activities too, including whitewater paddling, fishing, trail exploring, campfire cookouts, off-roading, and more.
Informal groups will fly out on sightseeing adventures to surrounding landmarks and airports (weather permitting).
Snacks, drinks, ice, and camping supplies are available at Byrd’s on-site store. Restaurant dining is available at Byrd’s Riverfront Restaurant.
Aviation fuel is available nearby at the Ozark (7M5) and Clarksville (H35) municipal airports. Fuel is not available on site.
Flying at Byrd’s is free! RV campsites with hookups are $25 per night. Primitive camping is $10 per person per night with access to our large heated shower house. Cabins are available on site. Call 479-667-4066 for reservations.
