Fly Iowa Challenge
IAPG Sponsors the Fly Iowa Challenge
The Fly Iowa Challenge is a continuing program of IAPG. The goal of the Fly Iowa Challenge is to:
- Encourage pilots to visit Iowa’s fine airports
- Increase awareness of and promote Iowa’s airports
- Increase activity levels at Iowa’s airports.
- Increase support for the goals of the Iowa Aviation Promotion Group
- Increase the activity and proficiency level of Iowa pilots
Pilots from all across the U.S. will attempt to visit as many of Iowa’s 109 public access airports as possible. There is no time limit for completion of the visits, and when a participant completes the initial or Bronze level, they may claim a prize and continue qualifying for Silver or Gold (the highest level—all 109 airports).
Flights must be recorded in the FAA logbook and the Fly Iowa Challenge Passport log and the participant must remain registered as an IAPG member for the flights to count.
Participants will be eligible for pilot accessories such as hats, shirts, pilot bags, and leather jackets.
Now that it has warmed up from the outside cold temperatures, and I ‘dared’ try it on…….I can report that it fits WONDERFULLY and looks SHARP! LOVE that leather smell! I will wear it proudly and comfortably!
The Fly Iowa Challenge began as an IAPG program in 2007 and was to be a one-year program. It has since been modified and extended as a perpetual program with recognition awards made as participants qualify. The following pilots have won awards in the Fly Iowa Challenge:
