St. George Airport

St. George, UT

Join us in sunny St. George, Utah for the CJAA Southwest Regional Jet Blast on October 19-22. This Jet Blast features some of the most wide open and beautiful airspace available in the USA. The St. George airport is quiet and features a long, easy to use runway and wonderful FBO. Host for the Jet Blast is Jack Hunter and the Western Sky Aviation Warbird Museum.

If we get enough interest, we can have an Examiner at the event for 61.58 checkrides for those needing one this year.

Fee is $100 and covers two dinners, three lunches along with snacks and drinks throughout the day.

Suggest you make your hotel reservations immediately as St. George is a busy place in the fall and rooms go quickly!

Our block of rooms and rate are good until October 2nd. Do not delay!
