North American Trainer Association Returns to Dubuque
Dubuque, IA |
The Dubuque Jet Center and the Dubuque Regional Airport are happy to announce that members of the North American Trainer Association (NATA) will return to fill the skies over Dubuque with historical aircraft from July 18 - July 21, 2019. During this period, an estimated 40 WWII AT-6 Texans as well as other WWII era military training aircraft including P-51 Mustangs will operate from the ramp at Dubuque Regional Airport. The AT-6 pilots are gathering in Dubuque for the yearly pre-Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture formation practice and qualification.
NATA is celebrating its 33rd year in 2019. The Association has one thousand members worldwide. The first "formation clinic" was at Boscobel, WI and has been held at various Midwest locations since.
Although the Formation Clinic is private, and the airport ramp will be closed to the public, there is an observation area off Aviation Drive adjacent to the airline passenger terminal for the public. For best viewing times, spectators can visit the area between 10 am and 6 pm to view some of the flights. Observers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and plenty of sunscreen and water!
