2016 Wrens Fall Fly-In

Wrens Georgia Fly-In 2015
Friday, September 16, 2016 - 1:45pm to Sunday, September 18, 2016 - 12:00pm


WRENS is a Fly-in event held at the airport in Wrens, GA (65J) in the fall of each year. It was originally known as Rotors-Over-Carolina (ROC) when it was held in the South Carolina, but moved to Georgia in 1998. As an EAA event, it draws some fixed-wing aircraft, but it has always been primarily a rotorcraft and gyroplane gathering. Wrens typically attracts gyroplane enthusiasts from the Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Carolina rotorcraft clubs.

The event is free-form and not as large or organized as some of the others across the nation, but is often well-attended. It is a good place to meet builders and pilots and get one-on-one contact with those active in the sport. It is also a good place to see a variety of machines up close for pictures, questions or just to gather ideas.

Friday is an arrival day and setup, with some flying occurring mostly in the late afternoon. Saturday is the busiest day, and Sunday is a pack-up-and-go day. Some die-hard pilots may squeeze out a flight Sunday morning. Camping with or without hook-ups is available and there is a reasonable motel near the airport. A grocery and several restaurants are near the airport.
