Boshears SkyFest patrons took a ride in a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter at Daniel Field during the 2006 fly-in. The 2007 event is expected to generate more than $141,000 in direct visitor spending.

The actual amount might be higher because the bureau bases its estimate only on groups it provides services for or helped bring to Augusta.

The following groups it provided service to include:

Beulah Grove Baptist Church Vision Builders National Conference


Garden Club of Georgia's Azalea District annual meeting


Boshears Memorial Fly-In


Hephzibah High School Reunion


Seventh District of American Advertising Association's Fall Board Meeting


Georgia Hospital Association Council on Auxiliaries Volunteers' 2007 annual meeting


Georgia Airports Association annual meeting


Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials' annual fall conference


Georgia Association of Homes & Services for Children's 2007 childcare annual conference
