New Aviation Event Announced In Denver
December 11, 2008 — Colorado Sport Aviation, Inc. (CSA) announced the creation of the Colorado Sport International Air Show and Rocky Mountain Regional Fly-In (RMRFI) at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Denver, Colorado, on August 22-23, 2009. This new event brings a substantial general aviation air show and fly to the Denver metro area, making it easily accessible to flight enthusiasts.
Throughout its 29-year history, RMRFI hosted events in Greeley, Longmont and most recently Watkins at the Front Range Airport. There was no event in 2008 as the organization committed its resources to relocating the event.
“We are anticipating something truly spectacular as we work together to incorporate the very successful annual Metro Airport Open House into our event,” said Jim Cimiluca, CSA’s president and event chairman. “Metro Airport’s added onsite capabilities and easy access to many local businesses, accommodations, and restaurants in the Denver metro area will also enable the event to reach its desired future potential.”
Metro Airport is located on the northwestern edge of the Denver metropolitan area and just southwest of Boulder.
For event information, including additional services and amenities available at the new venue, will be posted CSA’s new website, www.CoSportAviation.org, as it becomes available. CSA is currently finalizing negotiations with Metro Airport and expects to begin planning meetings for the 2009 event this month.
Organizers are looking for individuals willing to serve as volunteers for the event and asks those interested to visit the website for a list of opportunities to become involved.
