Mark your calendars. Our chapter will be hosting an Airport Fun Day on Saturday, April 13, between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm at the EAA Chapter at Lincoln. This will be a youth-centered family event as we go out to the community to spread the word about chapter activities to benefit youth.
We will have several static displayed aircraft on hand, with pilots standing by to answer questions and discuss aviation. We will have a flight simulator available, and will run the hit Disney movie Planes and it’s sequel during the event. We will have information about the Young Eagle event to be held on May 4, and also information about the scholarship and sponsorship opportunities our chapter offers to young people interested in aviation. All this plus a variety of other activities that should appeal to kids from 3 years old all the way to older teenagers.
This day will be our chapter kick-off for the spring and summer months. Aviation has a lot to offer all the time but during the flying season it offers fun to sport aviators. We’d like to spread that fun around a bit, but also want to take to opportunity to highlight some of the opportunities offered by both our chapter and the aviation community in general. As chapter members, please plan on setting aside the day to help make this a success. And, please, if you have any suggestions ahead of time on things to include or activities to share, please don’t be bashful. We are always looking for some new fresh ideas and if you have some, please let a board member know or just drop an email to the chapter.
