STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-August 10, 2022-Seatbelts are fastened, the runway rehabilitation is nearly complete, and we’re on final approach as the Steamboat Springs Airport-Bob Adams Field (KSBS) readies to welcome back pilots from around the region for the annual Fly-In and Airport Appreciation Day next month. 

“The Fly-In & Airport Appreciation Day celebrates this aviation jewel that serves Steamboat Springs, northwest Colorado, and the flying community,” commented Airport Manager Stacie Fain. “The facility sees more than 12,000 diverse general aviation operations per year and this event gives everyone a chance to experience the airfield up close.”

Join us for all things aviation and celebrate the airport during the Regional & Vintage Aircraft Fly-In & Airport Appreciation Day on Sunday, September 18 from 7am to 3pm. 

The event is wheels up with an early morning, home-cooked breakfast from the Lions Club (proceeds benefit local non-profit) from 7-11am. Flights and Demos soar throughout the day and the City of Steamboat Springs is offering Jet A with prist and 100LL fuel special for aircraft during the event. The Civil Air Patrol serves up lunch and ice cream (benefiting cadet scholarships) and the recent Runway Rehabilitation project will be celebrated with a family fun run and ribbon cutting on the newly resurfaced runway. 

Zephyr Helicopters will take off for a birds-eye view of the Yampa Valley when you buckle up in their Bell 206LR helicopter, known as the Long Ranger. Prefer to keep your feet on the ground? Classic Air Medical showcases its emergency response helicopter team based at the airport. 

Never been to the airfield? This is the ideal opportunity to check out the ramp, hangars, Fixed Based Operator (FBO) and get up close to many different types of aircraft that have come in for the day. While touring the facility, chat with pilots and airport staff, land yourself a special “I ♥ SBS” sticker or purchase signature KSBS merchandise. With limited public parking, the community is asked to consider biking to the festivities.
