 Come experience the New MERFI with our great facilities and exceptional hospitality! It is quite literally true to say that the MERFI fly-in is a long term success story. The original fly-in was developed by the local chapters who promoted the fly-in to the Mid-Eastern Regional community under the guidance of the EAA in 1965. Until August of 2003, the development of MERFI was controlled by a loosely organized community of volunteers. During the course of development, MERFI grew in complexity and ability and presented a number of awards to a wide following of loyal patriots.
