TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT – Add yourself to the waiting list

Boeing, the Future of Flight and are proud to share details on Aviation Geek Fest 2013 (#AGF13). Here is the current schedule (which is up for change due to unforeseen circumstances). I will be updating this page as new things are added to the schedule. Check the change-log on the bottom to see what has changed:


QUESTIONS (from comments or email – will be updated):

  • Where should I stay? Saturday will occur down in the Renton, WA area, where Sunday will happen up at Paine Field in Everett, WA. The Hilton Garden Inn (which is RIGHT on Paine Field) is offering a special #AGF13 discount.
  • Should I get a rental car? Seattle is not best known for their public transportation and getting up to Paine Field could be tricky.
  • What if I am not able to get tickets at 11am on Saturday, can you hold some? Unfortunately we cannot. This would be a good time to call in those favors from family and friends and ask them to get tickets for you — just remember to pay them back.
  • Can I take photos? Cameras will not be allowed on the Boeing factory tours, but there will be someone that will take group photos that you can use. Cameras ARE allowed on the Dreamliner Gallery tour.
  • Are there age restrictions? Yes, you must be 12 or older to go on the Boeing factory tours. There are no age restrictions for the Dreamliner Gallery.
  • What do I wear? It is Seattle in February, so bet on chilly, gray and rainy. For the Boeing tours, you cannot wear open toed shoes, backless shoes (like clogs) or high heels.
  • What if I have special needs? Please email me (da***@ai*************.com) ASAP so we can prepare for your needs.

1/26 11:20AM
: After a little panic at 11:02am, where it looked like every ticket was sold, we realize that was a mistake and more tickets are available. In the first 15min, the page received about 1500 views. At this point, almost 60% of all the tickets are sold.

1/26 4:45PM: About 80% of the tickets are gone. Figuring most should be gone by the end of the weekend. Thanks for so many people being interested. Will update when sold out.

Noon 1/27: Over 90% of the tickets are sold. Two of the Dreamliner Gallery time slots are sold out (the 10am still has a few tickets). The events page has seen over 2300 views in the 25hrs it has been live. Very awesome. Imagine all the tickets will sell out by early next week at the latest.

8:15am 1/28: Only a few tickets left. 737 Tour: 7, Everett Factory Tour: 2, Dreamliner Gallery Tour: 1.

10:25am 1/28: There are only three Boeing 737 tour tickets and everything else has sold out.

11:00am 1/28: All the tickets have sold out. Add yourself to our waiting list to be get tickets if people cancel.

1:00pm 1/28: Flying Heritage Collection will allow free admission to anyone with a #AGF13 ticket on either Sat or Sun. Updated the above schedule.

9:00am 1/29: Historic Flight Foundation, at Paine Field, will offer free admission Saturday and Sunday between 10am-5pm with badges/tickets.

1:00pm 1/29: Museum of Flight Restoration Center – free admission Saturday between 9am – 4pm.

You sold out within 2 minutes?!?

False alarm! But plenty tickets for everyone!


You sold out at 11:03?!?

Fooled you — actually had some issues with the site, but you got your ticket 🙂


You got me!! I was so scared!! haha So excited I got my tickets!! 🙂

Woo! My first time to an #AVGeekFest so I’m excited already!

Got my tickets in hand! I was one of those that initially got caught up in the “scare” and though I’d missed everything. Sure enough, couple moments later I managed to get tickets to everything. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!

Matt Baillie

Tickets acquired! Two days, two Boeing factories, one happy avgeek!

Shams Shaik

Got the tickets, will be in the lobby of Hilton on Friday 5 pm, looking forward to meet other AGeeks

Yea, maybe there should be a nice meet and greet down in the lobby about that time. I would have to be a bit later, since I work until 5pm… not sure if the Hotel might be able to let guests on the AGF13 rate know….

Once we enter the Future of Flight on Sunday, where do we go to pick up our badges? Also, how early can we pick up our badges on Sunday? Reason I ask is that I’m hoping to pick up a badge, and then head straight over to Flying Heritage and then head to the Dreamliner Gallery straight from there before coming back to Future of Flight.

You can print off your Eventbrite ticket from home and be golden :).

But we will be sending out a detailed schedule when we have it!

Thank you David!

I take it there’s one other aviation destination you’re working on at Paine Field to get access into for the weekend(MOF Restoration)?

Heh. Oops. Was told we had access yesterday, but forgot to update. It is only for Sat (main event down south), but at least something :).


Isaac Alexander

I haven’t purchased one yet(but will do so next month) but this might be a good time David to link to your previous article on the Aviation Passport between all the museums here and encourage everyone attending #AGF13 to get one.

Adam Juriga

I am staying with friends in Everett, is anyone staying in Everett and driving down to the Museum of flight and would like to carpool or anything like that? I’m coming from Florida so it won’t be easy for me to get around, heh.

Here’s David’s article for those of you that don’t know about the Paine Field Aviation Passport.
