Aircraft Spruce and EAA give Young Eagles first flight Nov. 3 at Falcon Field
From STAFF REPORTS
Aircraft Spruce and Peachtree City’s Atlanta Regional Airport-Falcon Field will be hosting local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) members who will provide school-age children with an opportunity to experience flight in a general aviation airplane at Atlanta Regional Airport-Falcon Field Nov. 3 from noon-4 p.m.
The EAA Young Eagles program is designed to give children between the ages of 8 to 17 an opportunity to experience flight in a general aviation airplane.
“Aircraft Spruce has been a major supporter of the EAA Young Eagles Program from the beginning and we continue to support the program today,” said Don Arrington, director of operations, Aircraft Spruce East.
2012 marks the second year that Aircraft Spruce has supported the Young Eagles’ flights in Peachtree City.
Flights will be coordinated by Williamson-based EAA Chapter 468. While pre-registration is not required, interested pilots or potential Young Eagles may contact Rich Woodcock, 770-605-3818 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Arrington’s plan for the future? “Aircraft Spruce and I are dedicated to the Young Eagle Program and having children enjoy the experience of flight.”
