Florida Flight School to Hold 'Learn to Fly Day' Event
May 12, 2011 — Sterling Flight Training in Jacksonville, Florida, will host an open house/11th anniversary celebration at its Craig Airport (KCRG) headquarters on International Learn to Fly Day, Saturday, May 21, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. local time.
The event - held rain or shine - will feature hourly flight training seminars, aircraft displays, free EAA Young Eagles flights by Jacksonville EAA Chapter 193 members, airplane and helicopter rides, aviation product exhibits, a silent auction and raffle drawings for free airplane and helicopter rides, food, fun, and a whole lot more.
“During our 11 years, Sterling Flight Training has taught thousands of people of all ages to enjoy the wonders of flying an airplane,” said Rebecca Brown, Sterling’s director of marketing and admissions. “Many of our students have gone on to fly with our military and commercial airlines - and they all started with a trip to the airport.”
Parking and admission are free. Proceeds from food and beverage sales, as well as the silent auction, will go to support the efforts of EAA Chapter 193, and to help promote GA throughout northeast Florida. Learn more about Sterling Flight Services here.
