Stow – The world of flight offers fun, freedom and experiences unlike anything else in the world. And you'se invited to participate as Chapter 196 of the Experimental Aircraft Association hosts an International Learn to Fly Day event Saturday, May 19m from 9 a.m. to noon, at Minute Man Airfield in Stow.
International Learn to Fly Day was created to invite people interested in the world of flight to discover more by meeting local aviators and discovering the initial steps toward “living the dream” of personal flight. Nearly 600,000 people from all walks of life in the U.S. are licensed pilots, but millions more have dreamed of joining that group.
Members of EAA Chapter 196 will offer free introductory airplane rides to all adults. Pilots, flight instructors, and aircraft owners will be available to discuss the possibilities and enjoyment available in aviation. In addition, flight instructors from Noble Air Ventures flight school will offer introductory flying lessons for $50.
EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world's most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA's 160,000 members and 1,000 local chapters enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.
