Learn to Fly Day
March 12, 2010 - Don’t forget to mark May 15 on your chapter calendars as International Learn to Fly Day. It’s not too late to plan a chapter event for that day, if you haven’t already. The event doesn’t have to be elaborate. It can be as easy as taking someone for an orientation ride or inviting someone out to the airport for the day. With a little more planning, you can host an airport open house or a pancake breakfast that’s open to the community. You may even want to set up a display in your local mall or other venue to help share the spirit of aviation. For more information and ideas, visit our International Learn to Fly Day website, www.LearnToFly.org. Don’t forget to post your activities on the calendar of events, either. www.EAA.org/calendar/
If every pilot and aviation enthusiast were to introduce one new person to flying, aviation would grow. Introduce two people, and the results would be spectacular. Join us in celebrating International Learn to Fly Day on May 15 and help grow general aviation.
