The program includes:

There is no registration fee to attend the Fly-In, but participants are responsible for their own travel expenses. A limited number of travel stipends are available (see below for details.) A cancellation fee of $125.00 will be charged to participants who cancel less than two weeks prior to the event start date (after March 3, 2014.)
