Air Combat USA and Blimp to Return to Woodbine Municipal Airport (KOBI), New Jersey


WOODBINE - Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce two return visitors to the Woodbine Municipal Airport.

For the fifth year Woodbine Municipal Airport is one of the 25 cities hosting Air Combat USA.

Established in 1988, Air Combat USA is the original civilian dog fighting school in the world, the innovators of air combat training for civilians. With over 19 years of experience and over 38,000 guest pilots flown, Air Combat USA is the largest, most recognized air combat school in the world. Their guest pilots fly real military fighters with licensed pilots in the cockpits with them. All aircraft are outfitted with high-end digital multi-cameras systems to capture fighter pilot experience. No pilot’s license is required for the guest. They work hand-in-hand with the Federal Aviation Administration and other governing agencies to define parameters and establish safety guidelines used to regulate the air combat industry.

Air Combat USA will be at the Woodbine Municipal Airport, 660 Henry DeCinque Boulevard, from Aug. 10 to 12, 2013. For more information call 800-522-7590.

Meanwhile, the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) Blimp will also be visiting the Woodbine Municipal Airport again in July and August.

It will dock here from July 23 through July 28 and again from Aug. 13 through 18.

The airship invites onlookers to visit the airport when it is in dock.

“Once again we are glad to host the Blimp at our airport and encourage visitors and residents to come out and see it while in dock, along with the other activities at the airport,” added Mayor Pikolycky. “At the same time I welcome Air Combat USA to their fifth visit to Woodbine Municipal Airport and wish them many return visits to our facility. Stop by our airport and give them a look-see.”
