The world of flight offers fun, freedom and experiences unlike anything else in the world, and you are invited to participate as Chapter 10 of the Experimental Aircraft Association hosts an International Learn To Fly Day event at Gundy’s Airport in Owasso on Saturday, May 16. 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.
During the EAA Chapter 10 International Learn To Fly Day event, which is free of charge, guests will discover more about how learning to fly is not as time-consuming or expensive as you might think. Pilots, flight instructors and aircraft owners will be available to discuss the possibilities and enjoyment available in aviation. The May 16 event in Owasso will be held at Gundy’s Airport - 7806 N. 172nd Street (3.5 miles east of Hwy 169 on 76th Street North). It is scheduled to take place from 10:00am – 2:00pm. EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world’s most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA’s 160,000 members and 1,000 local chapters enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.
