The Fly Kansas Air tour originally began in 1928 to demonstrate the fledgling aviation industry across the state. The tour was restarted by KCAE in 2008 as a commemorative event to pay homage to the "Air Capital of the World" and aviation clusters around the Kansas. Today, the event reaches local communities across the state to promote interest in aviation with a focus on aviation education, pilot camaraderie, and industry development.
The success of the commemorative in 2008 led to the creation of an inaugural event in partnership with the Kansas Department of Transportation, Division of Aviation in 2014 that is now in it's fifth and largest year yet.
The tour has expanded from a handful of pilots, to over 50 individual airplanes visiting local airports across the state. The tour typically stops at least 10 airports across western, central, and eastern Kansas with events or local community involvement planned at each.
