First Flights for Kids 2016

Our First Flights for Kids event on September 10th was a success with 109 kids flown.  After having to cancel the June event due to weather, we all were very thankful for getting the weather we needed for scenic flights.

We had 7 aircraft participating which included AFC’s Cessna 172N, AFC’s Piper Archer, Ken Funk’s Mooney Ovation, Chris Hibbert’s Bellanca Super Viking, Arvid Isaak’s Cessna 182, Rene Robertson’s Pacer and Gerry Visser’s Piper Saratoga.

Everything went very smoothly and the participants all enjoyed the experience according to reports as they departed and from feedback left on our Facebook and website pages.

Massive thanks to all the many volunteers and participants for helping us make this another special day.  Thanks as well to both Conair and Coastal Pacific Aviation for their continued support in allowing us to use their ramp space and classroom facilities respectively.

Here are links to the picture galleries from the event:

      Hi Teresa,

      Thanks for your interest. We normally run our event in the 2nd Saturday of June each year. As such, please watch our Facebook page and our website for the announcement in early May for registration.
