Host a Flying Start Event on May 18 and Receive Two FREE Wristbands to AirVenture
March 2019 - Mark your calendars! International Learn to Fly Day is Saturday, May 18, and this year we are encouraging all chapters to get involved by hosting a Flying Start event on this day. The Flying Start program provides chapters with a perfect opportunity to reach out into the local community and bring those interested in aviation to the airport to show them firsthand how accessible and enjoyable general aviation can be. Hosting a Flying Start event is easy. All your chapter needs is a place to meet, a CFI from a local flight school or FBO, volunteer pilots to give Eagle Flights and serve as mentors, and presentation materials from EAA.
Chapters that host a Flying Start event on Learn to Fly Day — or any day in May 2019 — will receive two free weekly passes for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, to be used as a fundraiser or to give to a deserving chapter volunteer. If your chapter is interested in hosting a Flying Start event, please visit EAA.org/FlyingStart to learn more and to register your event.
