Event Description

April 28, 2011 Updated May 8, 2012 at 7:52 AM EDT

The world of flight offers fun, freedom and experiences unlike anything else in the world. You‟re invited to participate as Chapter 2 of the Experimental Aircraft Association hosts an International Learn to Fly Day event at Smith Field Airport in Fort Wayne, IN on Saturday, May 19 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

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 and experiencing the freedom of flight.

During the Learn to Fly Day event, guests will discover how learning to fly is not as time-consuming or expensive as you might think. Pilots, flight instructors, aircraft owners and aviation organizations will be available to discuss the possibilities and enjoyment available in aviation.
Free informational flight training seminars will be presented by Sweet Aviation at 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM to discuss flight training topics, options and answer any questions. Introductory flights will
be available for a fee and will include a free logbook. There will also be various types of general aviation aircraft on static display with the opportunity to speak to pilots and aviation organizations about their involvement in aviation.
