Learn to Fly Day May 18 in Stow

airplane propellerStow – The world of flight offers fun, freedom, and experiences unlike anything else in the world, and you'se invited to participate as Chapter 196 of the Experimental Aircraft Association hosts a fly-in Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Minute Man Airfield in Stow. In case of rain, the event will be held Sunday, May 19.

Join in as pilots from the New England region gather to show off their airplanes and engage in “hangar talk.” Learn about the possibilities and enjoyment available in aviation while you enjoy burgers and hot dogs from the EAA Chapter 196 grill. Signups for introductory flights will be available, and flight instructors from Noble Air Ventures flight school will be present to discuss their training programs.

International Learn to Fly Day was created to invite people interested in the world of flight to discover more by meeting local aviators and discovering the initial steps toward “living the dream” of personal flight. Nearly 600,000 people from all walks of life in the U.S. are licensed pilots, but millions more have dreamed of joining that group.

For more information on the event, call 978-212-9196 or go to www.eaa196.org. For more information on EAA and its programs, call 800-564-6322 or go to www.eaa.org. The Minute Man Airfield is located 302 Boxboro Rd.
