Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Last Saturday's St. Louis Regional Airport Fly-In was the annual gathering of the St. Louis area aviation community in Bethalto, IL.  Local aviators brought a wide variety of aircraft, from RV and Lightning homebuilts to Stearman and T-6 Texan warbirds to Skyhawks and Bonanzas and everything in between.  The Aero Experience brings you triple play coverage that begins with Mark Nankivil, "Aero Two," with his flight into St. Louis Regional Airport and ramp views.  Next, Carmelo Turdo, "Aero One," adds more ramp coverage, and then Leo Cachat, "Aero Four," captures ramp and flying activity.  (Don't worry, Fred Harl, "Aero Three," will reappear soon with his AirVenture coverage).  We hope you enjoy our team coverage of this event, and visit regularly to experience aviation with us again soon.
