Blue Ash Airport Days –- 1997-2009

It is with great disappointment, that the producers of Blue Ash Airport Days announce the canceling of the airshow scheduled for September 12- 13.

Cheryl Popp, the show producer for 12 years said," We have been caught in the perfect storm…literally. We had a hurricane in Ohio last year that greatly reduced our paid attendance, necessary ramp space to accommodate the event was not available this year, some of the airport property has been sold and the reconfiguration construction schedule is unknown and the failing economy had greatly reduced our sponsorship possibilities. "

The airshow may continue after this hiatus, but the reconfiguration of the airport may ultimately decide if we can continue. "The City of Blue Ash and Cincinnati has been supportive of the airshow since 1997. We are a quality, small show going out of business with money in the bank!" said Tom Popp. We have been praised by the FAA on our organization and there are a team of committee members and volunteers waiting to announce that we are back in business. We hope to continue our mission of educating the public about aviation, producing a quality community event and donating to charity. " said Popp.

In an email sent out this week, AOPA President Craig Fuller put out a request to the organization's member pilots that I believe we all should follow. Fuller said this:

"General aviation is facing its most serious challenge in its 100-year history. Proposed user fees in the president's budget, growing urban pressures on GA airports, onerous security proposals, and a lack of commitment to fund FAA operations and airport improvements is what we're facing. We can't stand by and let others define us. We must take action—and that begins with your story."
