Start Making Plans for International Learn to Fly Day May 21
January 20, 2011 — Last May, EAA members, chapters, and other aviation groups and enthusiasts introduced the wonder of flight to more than 40,000 people at 450 local events during the first International Learn to Fly Day. Mark your calendars and start making plans for the second annual event, set for Saturday, May 21, 2011.
The goal of this effort is to involve the entire aviation community and bring aviators together with those who have the dream of flight to show and encourage them to take that next step toward becoming a pilot. EAA and numerous other aviation organizations and businesses are again joining together to organize introductory flights, seminars, open houses at airports and flight schools, and other activities. (Read about last year’s inaugural event here.)
EAA encourages chapters to organize an event and post it to the International Learn to Fly Day online information center, located here. Individual members can also get involved simply by taking a friend or relative up for a flight, or, as more and more events appear on the website, search for an event in their area.
We’ll have much more to come as we approach May 21, so stay tuned!
