18th Annual Kenai Peninsula Air Fair Appreciation

The KPAF Planning Committee for the Cities of Kenai and Soldotna would like to thank all the volunteers, sponsors and businesses who generously contributed to make our event another successful one!

A beautiful day for thirty-seven pilots and passengers to participate in the peninsula-wide poker run. 2018 sponsors who donated so generously to the poker run prizes: Aero In Stock, Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co., Alaska Industrial Hardware, Alaska Railroad, Chena Hot Springs, cities of Kenai and Soldotna, Dan’s TV & Appliance, Froso’s Family Dining, Grant Aviation, Home Depot, Kachemak Electric, Pen Air, RAVN Alaska, Spenard Builder’s Supply, Stoddard Aircraft Parts Center, St. Elias, Supercub Org., the Cannery Lodge, the Flats Bistro, Trustworthy Hardware, and Trinity Greenhouse.

Thank you to the financial sponsors Hilcorp Alaska, AOPA, Beacon Occupational Health and Safety, Peninsula Aero Tech, Wince-Corthell-Bryson and Peninsula Ear, Nose and Throat. Without your generous support, this event would not be possible.

It was another great day on the peninsula for aviation and appreciating our military! Thank you to the 168th Refueling Unit from Eielson Air Force Base, USCG Air Station Kodiak, and the Commemorative Air Force Warbirds! These aircraft static displays add a very special element to our event!
