MANSFIELD -- The Mansfield Aviation Club (MAC) in conjunction with the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) will be offering free Young Eagles airplane rides to young people between the ages of 8 and 17 on Saturday, July 6 from 10 a.m. to noon at Mansfield Lahm Airport.
Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. on the aircraft parking ramp just outside the Subway. A parent or legal guardian must accompany their child to complete the registration process.
EAA has sponsored these flights since 1991 with more than 2 million young people being provided a meaningful flight experience – free of charge. And, the flights are provided through the generous efforts of local MAC/EAA member pilots.
The Young Eagles flights are a part of the Airport Day event that begins at 8 a.m. with a Pancake Breakfast hosted by the Aviation Club at the pavilion, and a Classic Car Show.
