Fly In Aircraft are what started it all at the Airshow of the Cascades. In the 1970's, friends and family would fly in and land on the Ochs family farm near Madras for an annual get together. As more and more began to attend, the need for another venue became the nexus forthe move to Madras Airport and in 2000, the Airshow of the Cascades was born!

We invite pilots and owners who have rare, interesting and unique aircraft to fly in and display their aircraft as a part of our Fly-In Show where our patrons get to appreciate the love and care put into these treasures of the sky. Their airplanes are judged and awarded trophies based on the classes described (to the right).

If you would like to participate in the Fly-In Show, our registration is open now!
