The Canard Fly-In at Rough River

Welcome to the home of the biggest canard fly-in in the country.

This canard fly-in is held in Rough River State Park in Kentucky.

The airport identifier is 2I3 (Two India Three). The runways are 2-20, 3200 feet, lighted, no instrument approaches, and no fuel on the field.

This is the most laid-back fly-in on the planet. It is not full of scheduled events, seminars, or races. This gives us time to enjoy the great company of the finest group in aviation. 

The rooms and cottages at the lodge usually fill up fast so get your reservation well in advance. Tent camping is permitted by the airplanes and there are showers in the terminal building. If you procrastinate and miss out on accommodations at the lodge there are a couple of local motels within 2 miles that usually have rooms.

Fly In Location is 2I3
