NOTE: When you print your tickets, it incorrectly states where to meet on Saturday. We are to meet at the Museum of Flight by Noon to take the 737 factory tour.

This is shaping up to be one EPIC event and I am so happy that so many of you will be able to join in. All 420 tickets sold out over the weekend and there were over 35 people on the wait list.

If you are still looking for a place to stay the Hilton Garden Inn at Paine Field is still offering a special #AGF13 discount.

Things to Do While Visiting Seattle: It is Not Just About Aviation

Could we set up something like a Twitter registration list? Someone made one in 2010.

Also, is it possible for people to start organizing when they plan to attend some of the other museums over the weekend? Say that for Saturday for people that aren’t going to Seattle but going to the Museum of Flight Restoration Center. A good time for everyone there and tour it together.

For Sunday, I plan to head to the Flying Heritage Collection right at 10am on Sunday before heading over to the Dreamliner Tour. Curious how many people plan to do that as well, or plan to go to Historic Flight before heading over to Future of Flight for the tours.

Wow, thousands of aviation geeks in the area and only 420 tickets available? Where were we when this was advertized?

It is really not easy to organize an event with 420 tickets, little alone more :). Sorry if you missed out, but been promoting for months.


Wish I was going to be in the area about a month and a half earlier. I am coming out to Seattle for training in April. With about a week of free time I need to make sure I maximize my Seattle experience, and Boeing figures to play a large role in that.

Looks like it will be awesome though, and I look forward to the reports afterwards. It is awesome how big this is becoming.

The Boeing Dreamliner Gallery has it’s own website.

Please note. Be sure to have your ticket with you when you go there. Don’t leave it behind accidentally.

Also, looks like we have about a dozen people so far heading to the Everett location of Bob’s Burger and Brew on Sunday morning at 9am sharp. Everyone that’s attending Aviation Geek Fest is welcome to come.

About how long should it take us to drive from the Hilton Garden Inn Paine Field to the Museum of Flight on Saturday morning?

@Scott – That drive is about 40 min w/out traffic.

And normally Sat morning shouldn’t be a problem, but the University District is always a mess. Check the traffic before you leave:

But normally an hour will be more than enough time.


When do you expect AGF14 info to be announced?
