On Saturday June 16, 2018, the club held its 10th annual AFC’s First Flights for Kids event.
We had nine aircraft participate in our awesome fleet which included the new addition of a turbine helicopter (thanks Ryan!) which added some new interest to the event.
Thanks to all the volunteers and pilots who participated. We had a good mix of newer members, “not-so-new” members and some “potential-new” members too. It’s your efforts and generosity that allowed over 140 kids to get their first taste of flight in a small airplane. To date, the club has flown well over 1000 kids in the last 10 years! Well done!
Below in the article is a small sample of the awesome pictures taken by our photographer. Here are links to the entire collection: Children , Candids.
We look forward to seeing everyone again for next year’s event on Saturday June 15, 2019 !
