The 2nd Annual Airshow is here! This time, Eagle Eye Eddie’s twin brother, Hawkeye Harry, is making the trip to the farm to surprise his brother. The farm is coming together to prep his plane so he can make his grand entrance during the stunt show, and see that surprised look on his brother!
If you are at least level 12, you will see a pop-up inviting you to the Annual Airshow Event! You may have to force close the game to see the update, which means to clear it from your mobile device's memory. You may also need to reboot your device.
The event starts on Wednesday, April 13, and will have 2 stages; each 6 days in length. Complete the Annual Airshow, and compete with farmers all over the world for the top leaderboard position! Quests will reward you with Pilot Points, so be sure to complete as many as you can.
Start off the quests by visiting the Event Green located behind Eagle Eye Eddie's airplane. It will be dressed with a searchlight, an audience bleacher , a flight control tower, and a podium for the winners of the airshow. You will see 3 orders at a time which can either be harvested (crops), or crafted. Each item requested will have a different timer that will allow you to get the items needed.
Tip: Check the Farm Stand often to see if your friends are selling what you need.
Pilot Wings Boost:
There will be two types of Boost during the Annual Airshow event: the Silver Pilot Wing, and the Gold Pilot Wing. Use these boosts to increase the amount of Pilot points by 50% using coins, or by 100% using keys. There will be a timer once a boost is activated and a short cool-down period when you can buy another boost. Boosts will last 1 hour, and you can only select one boost at a time. (prices subject to change based on level)
The second tab will show you the leaderboard that you are in. Not everyone you know will be in the same leaderboard. The leaderboard tab will tell you which prize category you are currently in (Gold, Silver, or Bronze). You can also see how you rank among your friends. To be fair to all, you will be in a leaderboard with others that are similar level. While viewing the leaderboard, you will now be able to see which Farmers are using boosts.
You will see 3 different rewards that are broken into tiers. Hawkeye Harry will permanently stay in your farm if you are among the top (gold) position of your leaderboard on the final day of the 1st or 2nd stage. If you are in the middle position (Silver Cup level) you will earn *2 Gold Stamps, 2 Padlocks & 10 Keys, and if you are casually playing and land on the lowest tier (bronze) you will earn *1 Silver Stamp, 1 Padlock & 5 Golden Gloves!
*1st and 2nd stage rewards are the same for silver and bronze tiers.
There are 2 chances to win the prizes. **The second stage will repeat the rewards shown below, allowing you to get another shot at Hawkeye Harry. If you get him on first stage of the Airshow, Hawkeye Harry will become a decorated pilot if you land on the top spot of the second stage. Decorated Hawkeye Harry will be an upgrade to the existing Hawkeye Harry, not a second Farm Hand. The upgraded Hawkeye Harry will have keener senses and will give you better chances for Event items in select future events.
**You will only be able to earn one of the rewards, not all three! The higher you get on the leaderboard will determine what reward you will receive on the last day of the event! To earn the Decorated Hawkeye Harry, you have to place in the Top 5 of your Leaderboard for both stages of the Event.
Temporary Place of Interest: Airshow Hangar:
The Airshow Hangar is a temporary attraction that will stay in your farm until the event is over. In order to explore this aviation attraction, players will need to craft Mechanic's Munchies at the Stovetop. A trip inside the Hangar can accommodate 4 Farm Hands, and will last an hour.
Temporary Farm Hands: Flight Mechanic Rosie & Pilot Penelope
You can purchase the Flight Mechanic Rosie, and Pilot Penelope as temporary Farm Hands. They can help you find those rare 2nd Annual Airshow event items, and will leave once the Event is over!
New items needed and where to locate it:
Sugar Dough - Airshow Hangar, Grandma's Glade, Prized Animals
Aged Cheddar - Airshow Hangar, Merryweather Mine
Heavy Cloth - Airshow Hangar, Pappy's Pond, Mill, Cove
** Tip: Crafted items that contain these event items will be have higher Pilot Points! Make sure to have plenty of these event items to help you move up on the leaderboard!
