AFC’s First Flights for Kids 2017 Report

This year’s AFC’s First Flights for Kids event was held on Saturday June 17.  Our club gave 119 kids their first taste of flight in a small airplane.  The weather was excellent and everything went well.

In addition to our awesome pilots and volunteers, our partners, Coastal Pacific Aviation, Conair, 861 Silverfox Air Cadet Squadron and NavCan tower staff all contributed to the event’s success.  Thanks to everyone!

Next year will be our 10th year and we will be looking once again for club members to come together to provide this experience to lucky children from the community and surrounding areas.

The following links will take you to pictures from the event (with a few samples below):

Thanks again and see you at next year’s 10th anniversary event on June 16!

Cheers,
