Conrad Mattson

Draheim is expecting about 7,000 people to attend this year’s show, and he said the event is a great opportunity for the community to experience what the Stevens Point airport has to offer. He said the event truly embodies what he believes is the spirit of aviation.

The Stevens Point Municipal Airport/Mattson Field  is preparing for its biennial Air Show, which will feature air rides, plane aerobatics and a dedication ceremony for the naming of the airport. The Air Show will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 1, at the airport, 4501 Highway 66, Stevens Point. (Portage County Gazette)

The show offers more than 25 aircraft exhibits, emergency vehicle displays and a chance to meet and talk with pilots.

“Flying requires so much attention; it forces you to let go of daily stresses and focus on flying,” he said. “You are solely responsible for your own actions in the air, and that’s a wonderful feeling.”

Now called the “Stevens Point Municipal Airport/ Mattson Field”, the airport has been renamed to honor the first Jet Ace (a designation given to a military aviator with a high number of aerial victories) to come out of Wisconsin- Conrad “Connie” Mattson.

Takeoffs & Landings: Preventing an Accident AND  …

Investigation and Analysis of Two GA Crashes

Master CFI, DPE, FAASTeam Lead Rep and CFI of the Year Woody Minar will give two presentations – Takeoffs & Landings: Preventing an Accident (very popular seminar given at Oshkosh) AND a  presentation on the events and causal factors leading up to the crashes of two aircraft (land and seaplane) by two of his friends.

The latter presentation will include graphics and photos of the crash sites along with the retrievals. You will no doubt be impacted and will leave you wondering how all the occupants survived.

“Wanda, I was first going to talk about the crash of our Cherokee Six-300 on July 14th.  Then I thought I should add the crash of a seaplane a year ago (wheels down landing on a lake) by another friend of mine.  … well, yesterday, another pilot friend of mine called me to say he crashed his Zenith 750.  I went to the crash site today and took some pictures.   It should be interesting to tie the casual factors together.  I have some 600 combined hours in those three airplanes.  Woody”
