People from across Australia with an interest in aviation are expected to gather in Narromine for the annual fly-in event, AusFly.

Between October 17 and October, 20 hundreds of aviators will be under one sky as people far and wide are expected to join Australia's recreational and sport aviators for a social, informative and educational fly-in weekend.

"It's educational, it's inspirational, it's about being together and promoting safe skies and a safe environment for everyone," Event coordinator and services manager for the Sports Aircraft Association Elaine Bradley said.

Visitors will see sport, certified, vintage and hand-built aircraft up close, air displays, and will be able to participate in seminars and workshops and receive information from industry exhibitors.

There is also plenty for a family fun day out with a petting zoo and jumping castle for kids and food and drink stalls available.


Visitors will also able to tour the Narromine Aviation Museum, which currently attracts up to 5000 visitors per year.

The event begins on Thursday with a welcome barbecue, followed by a day of seminars and workshops on Friday.

Saturday will also have seminars and workshops in the morning, followed by a community day supported by the Narromine Shire Council.

"We've got a petting zoo, clowns and there's a nice big air display happening in the afternoon. We have nine displays happening that will go over an hour and a half," Ms Bradley said.

"We've also got opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors, and we've got a number of them on board. We've got 25 exhibitors this year."

"It's going to be jam-packed, it's going to be amazing."

Ms Bradley said the three-day event, run by an army of volunteers, is aimed at bringing the region together and educating people about aviation history and careers.

"Everyone can get up close and personal with these planes, people have built these aeroplanes, it's their hobby it's what they do, they are either pilots that have just retired from Qantas or they fly for the Royal Flying Doctors," she said.

"Everyone has a story, everyone has a history about how they became an aviator, and they're really fascinating, they've got some amazing stories to tell."

Ms Bradley thanked the Narromine Shire, Narromine Aero Club and the Narromine Gliding Club.

"I hope the weather is good for us, fingers crossed, I think it will be, but a lot of hard work goes into the event, especially through the Shire," she said.

"We're volunteers, so everybody puts their heart and soul into it to make the event what it is."
