2013PilotPaloozaSignBoone, Iowa—June 2013—The PilotPalooza, a joint project of the Iowa DOT Office of Aviation and the Iowa Aviation Promotion Group was hosted by Boone MAP, a site very well suited for a Fly-In, drive-in event.  It was planned to be a fun educational day of free pilot forums, networking, and socializing, capped off with aviation educator and humorist Rod Machado.  Machado was in rare form and had the nearly 200 attendees rolling in the aisles.  It was likely that challenging weather, IFR at times, held down attendance but a great time was had by all who made it.
