The 2018 National Bucker Fly-in will be June 22 and 23, 2018, at Santa Paula, California. The organizers are Jay Billmayer and Hank Galpin. Since Jay and Hank live in Kalispell, Montana, this effort is being done at long range with some local help from Bruce and Janice Dickenson.

The primary impetus for returning to Santa Paula is to honor Joe Krybus who has dedicated several decades to the support of Bucker aircraft in the U.S. and worldwide. Most of us would not have safe and enjoyable airplanes if Joe had not provided us with parts and services.

Some things have changed since we last had a national Bucker fly-in in Santa Paula several years ago. Krybus Aviation is now in a hangar in the southeast corner of the airport. The restaurant has changed hands, but it is still basically across the runway from Joe's hangar. It is near the self-serve fuel tanks and near two hangars owned by the Santa Paula Aviation Museum. The Dickensons are offering those hangars for a catered dinner Saturday evening and maybe limited space for aircraft.

We are contemplating a fly-out for lunch one day and may organize a drive-out to the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard. The social aspect of our fly-in is paramount, so the planning is going to be somewhat free-form. This event is open to Bucker owners and family members and anyone interested in Bucker airplanes. There will be a registration fee.

If you plan to attend or just want to get email updates, you must contact Jay or Hank so we can get you on our list.

From 31st August to 2nd September 2018 Air Thun 2018 will take place at the airfield Thun.

The centerpiece of the three-day aviation event is an international Bücker meeting with machines and pilots from all over Europe. In addition to the legendary biplanes, there will be a whole range of other aviation attractions. These are to lure aviation fans from near and far to Thun.

The event takes place under the leadership of the airfield Thun and is organized by an experienced OC, which is networked nationwide in the aviation scene. Further information on the program and the individual program elements and partners involved is to be communicated at the end of this year.

Thun is to the south of Zurich and easily reached by train. It is one of the most beautiful parts of Switzerland, close to the Jungfrau, Interlaken, Lauterbrunen valley, Wengen and more.
