EAA AirVenture Museum Free Admission, Events Celebrate International Learn To Fly Day on May 15
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — (May 11, 2010) — Free admission and special programs will welcome all EAA AirVenture Museum visitors this Saturday, May 15, as EAA celebrates the inaugural International Learn To Fly Day.
Along with free admission, museum visitors can explore their own possibilities for learning to fly through exhibits from Fox Valley Technical College; Women in Aviation, International; Winnebago Flying Club; and Orion Flight Services. Orion will also welcome entries for a free introductory flight lesson at their Oshkosh facility.
In addition, EAA will hold drawings for free flights in aircraft based at the museum’s Pioneer Airport; offer free Young Eagles flights for ages 8-17 throughout the day; and host special “learn to fly” programming in all the museum’s theaters.
“International Learn to Fly Day was created not just to welcome people to discover flight, but to discover how they can get involved,” said EAA chairman/president Tom Poberezny, who announced International Learn To Fly Day at EAA AirVenture 2009. “Throughout the nation, activities will encourage people to take that next step and learn how they, too, can find the joy, excitement and fulfillment of flight.”
