MASSEY AERODROME MD1 – THE AIRPORT IS OPEN TO AIRCRAFT.
The Massey Air Museum IS CLOSED until further notice in accordance with Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s announcement on Monday (3/23/20), ordering all nonessential companies to close.
We’re sorry to report that we have faced the inevitable and CANCELED the Chili Fly-In in May, unlikely to be rescheduled this year. The way things are going it appears that the Antique Fly-In will be canceled also but we haven’t bitten the bullet on that one yet although the state may make that decision for us. Be cautious, Stay Well!

The Antique Fly-In is ON for today, Saturday. Weather is improving and we are setting up for food and fun. Details here. PAAS Fly-In Director: Mike Strieter 301-440-5294. The airport number is 410-928-5270. We’ll likely be landing Runway 02 Left Traffic for easy egress off the runway, though we do have a taxiway on the west side. Careful for NORDO aircraft.
The sun came out early this year and attracted over 100 fly-in aircraft. Plenty of ham and turkey was prepared by the airport staff, while hors d’oeuvres and desserts trickled in throughout the day. Classic cars, classic aircraft, and even an autogyro made it out for another successful December event. Thanks to all who helped out, or just attended and had fun keeping grass roots aviation alive.
First Antique Fly-In at Massey – a resounding success!
45th Antique Fly-In of the Potomac Antique Aero Squadron.
Approx. 75 show & guest airplanes plus 1 helicopter attended. It was breezy with a cross wind but partly sunny with low humidity that made the temperature in the low 90’s feel almost comfortable. Six airplanes received awards and 3 past award winners also attended. John Machamer’s brand new restoration, a 1930 Davis D-1K received two awards and father & son Joe & Jason Flood each received an award. We look forward to John Machamer to receive the Gold Lindy this year at Oshkosh.
Also attending was Joe Kaminskas’ 1930 WACO RNF and Marlin Horst’s 1929 Fairchild 71, both past Horn Point award winners and both are also recipients of aviations highest Award for restoration: EAA VINTAGE ANTIQUE GRAND CHAMPION – Gold Lindy.
Gene Breiner’s 1936 Taylorcraft J-2 stole the show when he put on the single blade Everel propeller and flew numerous demonstration flights (a two blade propeller is used for ferry flights across the bay).
