October 17th Display Day

The Petaluma Airport hosts monthly Display Days that provide free public access to both local and visiting aircraft. Other than December, there’s a Display Day on the third Saturday of every month (weather permitting.)

Visiting Stearman

October’s Display Day was on Saturday the 17th. The morning’s low overcast and gray skies burned off before Noon to a beautiful Fall day. We had over two dozen planes on display, including five (5!) vintage Stearman biplanes and a red Waco. Also a T-34 Mentor, Bonanza, several Cessnas, and more. Photos are available on PAPA’s new photo-sharing site,

PAPA volunteers were out in force to guide planes to and from parking, monitor the safety ropes delineating the public area, talk with visitors, pin Pilot Wings on future aviators, and staff the hot dog stand. More than 100 visitors stopped by. Don’t miss the next one, scheduled for Saturday, November 21st, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Both volunteers and visitors are needed!
