Promote Your International Learn to Fly Day Event to Local Media
May 3, 2011 – More than 130 events have filled up the International Learn to Fly Day calendar, with more and more being added every week. On Saturday, May 21, EAA chapters and aviation organizations are encouraged to share the spirit of aviation with friends and community.
Once you finalize your chapter’s event and activities, be sure to spread the word to your local media – newspapers (both daily and community), radio stations, television stations, and even online publications dedicated to your community.
Many media outlets publish ways to submit press releases to them through a “Contact Us” page on their websites. If you’d like, utilize this press release template by customizing it for your event, then submitting your release to each outlet.
While promotion and listings in news outlets will create a “buzz” in advance, also invite media to your event. Coverage from your event could lead to increased interest in your chapter’s activities and next year’s International Learn to Fly Day.
