Cache Airfest postponed but Hangar Hop and raffle will still go on

Andreas Weseman assistant professor of Aviation Technology at Utah State University said Cache Airfest had to be rescheduled to September because of FFA didn't clear theLogan-Cache Airport for the activity.

The Cache Airfest scheduled for Saturday, June 29 was postponed due to a hitch beyond the organizers control.

USU faculty members Andreas Wesemann, vice president, checks the instruments of one of the the DA-40’s airplane used for USU students to earn their pilot license while Shawn Barstow, president of the newly-formed Cache County Aviation Association, checks the rest of the aircraft.

The (Federal Aviation Administration) was backlogged and couldn’t visit the Logan-Cache Airport to give the clearance we needed to have a fly in,” said Andreas Weseman, vice president of the Cache County Aviation Association. “We are still going to have the Hangar Hop on Friday, June 28 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. sponsored by the USU Flight Team.”

The Hangar Hop features live music from the 1940’s big band era, performed by the Cache Community Band. Guests can spend the time dancing, listening to great music, enjoying appetizers and mingling with each other. Period dress is encouraged, including military attire.

“Candy Bomber Gail Halvorsen and retired General Robert Oaks will speak during the band breaks,” Weseman said. “They will also be on hand to sign books.”

Cache Airfest t-shirts will be on sale and they will still have a raffle for a free discovery airplane ride and other prizes to raise funds for the September activity.

We picked a weekend in September when there was no home football game,” Weseman said. “It will also be cooler and the students will be back to school.”

Ticket sales will support the Flying Aggies and the new Cache Valley Aviation Association, who are promoting aviation in Cache Valley with education, outreach and the bi-annual Airport Open House.

Tickets for the Hangar Hop cost a $20 admission fee for adults and children under the age of 9 are free.
