The Windy City Warbirds & Classics event is hosted each year by the Fox Valley Aero Club located in St Charles, Illinois.  Our field is located in the Western Suburbs of the greater Chicagoland area.  Nearby Chicago, often its own destination city with its many restaurants, museums, and theaters offers additional entertainment options.  St Charles, located on the majestic Fox River, also offers many local restaurants and historic small-town charm.  

Our beautiful field has a 50x800 foot paved runway with a 150x900 foot groomed grass runway parallel to it that is kept mowed to about one inch.  Our club has over 200 members, many of which help to ensure a safe and welcoming environment in which to enjoy this tremendous hobby. 

As stated by Jennifer Alderman in Model Aviation “It’s a testament to what this hobby is all about: a long-standing club with dedicated, welcoming members that puts on a great event, bringing in even better pilots, aircraft, and interested spectators who might have never seen anything like this. If you love all of these elements wrapped up into one place, make sure to put the Fox Valley Aero Club and the Windy City Warbirds and Classics event on your list. It’s definitely one not to miss! “ —Jennifer Alderman
