JetTip's fifth birthday is quickly approaching, and for the first time we're going to have a little get together to celebrate.

When: Sunday, September 25, 2022; 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Where: MSP's Aircraft Viewing Area
What: A low-key birthday party (donuts provided)

The forecast is clear with blustery northwest winds - it should make for some great photography of departures on 30L. Sunday's also the last day of Air France's seasonal service, they're scheduled to arrive at 5:30 PM.

JetTip launched on September 26, 2017, debuting our unique smart flight alert service at five airports - DFW, DTW, MSP, PHX and SEA. Five years later we've launched an app and coverage has expanded to over 400 airports across the US and Canada. A scrappy side project has become a fulltime job.

MSP's avgeek community has supported us since the first day and remains our largest customer base. We're proud to be based in the Twin Cities and part of the aviation scene here.

See you on Sunday!

... and if you happen to be closer to DFW, save the date for the evening of October 11, 2022.
