Oh Yeah, Food!
EAA Chapteer 1252 will host a pancake breakfast from 9am to noon and Discover Aviation Center will host a hotdog & burger lunch from noon on.
Want to go Flying?
The EAA volunteer pilots will sponsor Young Eagles Free Airplane Rides for youths ages 8-17. A parent must be present and registration will end at noon.
Tillie the Super Stearman Biplane from Heritage Biplane will be available for all to purchase rides. $160 for a 20 - 30 minute flight. A memory that'll last you a lifetime.
Please Note: On April 30th we were notified that Tillie the Biplane may not be available for this year's Discover Aviation Day. We're hoping this will change. In the meantime we are attempting to find a replacement for those wishing to purchase airplane rides.
The Metro Life Flight crew will be here in the afternoon to talk about their mission and show off the Life Flight helicopter.
There will be vendors and aviation educational booths including Lorain Community College and Kent State University.
We’re hoping for a beautiful weather day so you can enjoy a great Discover Aviation Day.
