Aviation Days at local college
The Young Eagles, a national group with a local chapter, will give youngsters free 20-minute flights at free Aviation Safety Education Days at Daniel Webster College, off Pine Hill Road.
Mike Mahoney, the local volunteer administrator for program, said seven pilots are expected to be available to give the young passengers an up-close look at an airplane, followed by a bird’s eye view of the community.
The free introductory flight is for children between the ages of 8 and 17. There will be a licensed pilot at the wheel of the aircraft.
The program is run by the Experimental Aircraft Association, an international aviation association founded in 1953. A parent or guardian must acpany the young fliers.
