These flights are provided free of charge to any youth aged 8 to 17 in order to introduce them to the possibilities within the aviation industry. Flights are for youth aged 8 to 17 only, BUT all ages are welcome to enjoy our event. Our event includes a number of community aviation related Exhibitors and static display aircraft, including Medi-Vac, Search and Rescue, helicopters, charter aircraft, flight schools, Air Cadets, and much much more!
