Boeing, the Future of Flight and AirlineReporter.com are proud to share details on Aviation Geek Fest 2013 (#AGF13)…
TICKETS GO ON SALE ON SAT, JAN 26th AT 11AM PST
All tickets will be first come, first serve. There are 150 tickets (for each of the main events) up for grabs, so quite a few folks will be able to enjoy the #AGF13 experience. Yes, if you click on the links right now, it will show invalid, but the links will work when the tickets go on sale.
The event will run a bit differently this year.Â One person can do everything and you do not have to pick and choose.
Please check out this page for all the Aviation Geek Fest updatesÂ (I don’t want to have to update multiple pages).
I was able to meet with the Future of Flight today and we are happy to announce that the dates (yes plural) for Aviation Geek Fest 2013Â (#AGF13) have been decided: Saturday February 16th AND Sunday February 17th 2013.
It is President’s Day weekend, so probably many of you also will have Monday the 18th off. There is currently nothing planned for AGF13 for that Monday, but there is plenty of other AvGeek goodness to enjoy in Seattle.
We are not able to share too many more details other than the dates right now, but rest assured, this event will be epic and well worth you making an effort to join us. We are planning to have activities both up north in Everett and down south in the Renton area.

I can tell you that this year’s event will be bigger and better than any previous. It will be like combining the past three AGF’s into one, then add a little magic and finally some AvGeekdom and then you have #AGF13.
As in last year, we will most likely charge for tickets, which will be going on sale over the next few weeks. Do not worry we will give you plenty of heads up (sign up for the email list).

Should you book your airline tickets now? Yes please do. We have people from all over the US join that joined us last year and we are hoping we will have more (even from around the world) this year. It will be worth it!
Ask any questions in the comments, but I do not have too much more to give as of now. If you have not done so already, please make sure you join the Aviation Geek Fest mailing list to get all the up-to-date details.
I hope to see you there!
It is time to start planning for Aviation Geek Fest 2013. No details are even close to share, but please add yourself to the Aviation Geek Fest 2013 e-mail list to be on top of any developments.
NOTE: If you were on the list for 2012, you should have received an email from me with a link to confirm you want to be on the list for 2013. You are not able to add yourself from the link above — yes, I know that is very annoying, but what my host provider is doing to cut down on spam. If you have trouble still, email me: [email protected]
I got to drive around Paine Field an a fire bus. Others went on the factory floor, the Dreamliner Gallery and more. What will #AGF13 hold? I am not sure.
Not sure what Aviation Geek Fest is all about? I can tell you that if you have any remote interest in aviation — you will love it. Check out what went down in previous years:
Aviation Geek Fest 2009
Aviation Geek Fest 2010
Aviation Geek Fest 2012Â
I plan to speak with some AvGeeks at the DorkFest at LAX this weekend to get ideas, but also feel free to post in the comments on any ideas you might have for #AGF13. Â The sky is the limit (literally, because I doubt we could get on VirginÂ Galactic).
We are looking to hold it before summer in 2013, but other than that, there are no other details — stay tuned.
