My Town Greenville: Free flights for children during Young Eagles Day June 14

GREENVILLE, Mich.--  Thousands of children will climb into the cockpit and take flight next weekend for the EAA’s annual International Young Eagles Day.

The annual event started a decade ago, launching many kids’ interest in aviation. As part of International Young Eagles Day, the Greenville Area Aviation Association will take children ages 8-17 years old on a free flight after a short on-ground workshop, introducing them to the basics of flight.

The free flights will take place June 14, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Greenville Airport. Each child must have a parent or guardian present to sign a waiver form.  Flights are available on a first come, first served basis.  If inclement weather occurs, the flights will be rescheduled for Sunday, June 15.
