MODAERO Festival and Air Show To Take Flight in Montgomery County
Local residents are in for sky-high excitement as the second annual MODAERO Festival and Air Show hits the Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport in Conroe. This three-day public event takes place Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4.
This aviation-based event began in 2016 in order to bring excitement to a new generation of aerospace enthusiasts. “Our mission is to engage, educate and empower the next generation through Aerospace. Our cornerstone event inspires everyone who as ever dreamed of taking flight to reach for the sky, ” said Brian Columbus, founder of the festival and organizing entity MODAERO Aviation Community, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. “We were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm for our startup event last year and see great potential for our first air show this year.”
Last year’s event included aviation exhibits and a career fair with more than 60 participating exhibitors, including such companies as Zenith Aircraft, Jeppesen and ExpressJet Airlines. This year, the event has added a full air show and will also include live music, food trucks, a kid zone, aerobatic demonstrations, and hands-on ground displays of classic aircraft. Columbus predicts an even larger turnout for this year’s festival.
“We have added so many exciting activities for air enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy,” said Columbus. “The excitement will be nonstop as we present aerobatic performers, static aircraft, skydiving demonstration, historic military warbirds, helicopters, drones – and more.”
The MODAERO organization intends to use this annual event to raise funds for year-round aviation outreach efforts. It has developed a number of initiatives to raise awareness of general aviation, encourage STEM education, and grow the #NextGen community of Aerospace in Texas and throughout the country. “We are always looking for collaborative partners in pursuing a similar mission,” said Columbus.
