The U.S. Nationals are typically held in the last week of September. The Salina Airport Authority (SAA) has let the IAC leadership know that there will be military operations the last week of September in 2022, therefore making the venue unavailable for the U.S. Nationals that week.
For those who like to plan ahead or needing to bid vacation a year in advance, SAA has confirmed Hangar 606 is available for the U.S. Nationals a week later;
- Sept 27 to Oct 1: Set up and practice
- Oct 2 to 7: Competition
- Oct 8: rain day
"We are looking forward to having you back in 2022. The majority of the time our Octobers are very beautiful and it might even be less windy", said Shelli Swanson, SAA Director of Administration and Finance.
The IAC board of directors will be meeting in November for the annual fall board meeting and is expected to approve the new dates.
