ILTFD Events Surpass 400!
Look for free EAA membership offer in May Sport Aviation
May 6, 2010 —The number of events scheduled throughout the nation for next Saturday, May 15’s first International Learn To Fly Day has soared past 400! On that day aviation enthusiasts will help others “live the dream” of learning to fly at 406 different events, many of which were organized through PilotJourney.com, a strong supporter of the ILTFD effort. Pilot Journey has already provided more than 10,000 free tickets to the hundreds of learn-to-fly events scheduled. (Listen to EAA Radio interview with Pilot Journey President Gary Bradshaw.)
Take Someone Flying, We’ll Make them a Member for Free!
And EAA has created a special complimentary membership offer that will help keep the excitement going. In your May 2010 edition of Sport Aviation, look for an International Learn to Fly Day insert that explains how you can give a friend a complimentary 6-month membership.
EAA has taken leadership of this important effort because of the organization’s extensive network of nearly 1,000 chapters, which supports and promotes aviation on the local level. As part of that effort, many EAA chapters are participating with events in their local communities. Find an event near you at www.learntoflyday.org.
“EAA chapters offer a very important link to growing the flight community, as chapters are the neighborly connection that welcomes new aviators and those who want to discover more about flight,” said EAA Chairman/President Tom Poberezny.
“Pilot Journey has been an outstanding partner both in terms of their commitment and their results to date in support of International Learn To Fly Day. They truly understand and believe in the importance of introducing enthusiasts to the world of flight, and we’re extremely pleased with their efforts.”
