What is the big deal? I looked online, all I could find were a few speeches and air shows. I am not that interested in watching other planes flying. What benefit would I get as a new pilot if I attended? I'd likely just drive. Is it kind of like a flying convention? Might there be manufacturers showing off their planes? Might I get to sit in them to see if I fit? How do non flying spouses enjoy themselves? I am willing to drive the 12 hours, but want it to be worth the time. What is the utility of attending this, considering I am a new pilot. Thanks.
