“It feels like returning home” was a common refrain heard over the course of the King Air Gathering 2022, which took place at the Beechcraft Heritage Museum from May 12-15.
And truly, it did. The grounds of the Beechcraft Heritage Museum was an ideal setting. Surrounded by rich Beechcraft history, the venue was perfect for learning all things King Air and getting to once again fellowship with old acquaintances and friends.
The information was top tier; coming from some of the most knowledgeable minds in the King Air community. No less impressive, though, was the entertainment and conference amenities. Top notch catering and acts provided for a conference that was not only informative but something even more important: fun.
The pace was leisurely and relaxed. Patrons were encouraged to go see the airfield, where a sea of King Air awaited of every model type. Brilliant sunsets in the evening turned the field into a visual feast for us enthusiasts.
On Saturday, tears would abound at a King Air awards ceremony, as honor was bestowed on who it was due, including a few who were no longer with us. It was the perfect cap for a perfect weekend.
The final news of the conference was then revealed: Kevin Carson and King Air Academy would be stepping down from hosting King Air Gathering and passing the torch to us here at King Air Nation.
It is not a responsibility we take lightly. Kevin and his team put their heart and soul into each and every gathering, and we plan on continuing in that passion to even greater things.
Planning for KAG 2023 is already in progress and we are sincerely looking forward to revealing the details in the coming months.
Thank you King Air community for all the love and support. This conference was an absolute testament to how special and wonderful you are.
We can’t wait to see you at the next one.
