Local Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter No. 1355 will host a chapter fly-in and cruise-in from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the airport.
General aviation aircraft and classic cars and hot rods will be on display during the event at the facility at 246 Airport Road. The Ridge Runners car club will be participating, an announcement said.
The event will allow people a chance to see rare and customized vehicles and several types of general aviation aircraft and learn more about flying.
The local event is one of four fly-ins taking place in Northeast Tennessee. September is Tennessee Fly-In month, providing a spotlight on general aviation in the state.
