The 5th Annual O.P. National Aviation Day Celebration
Wednesday, August 19th from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm will be Aviation Day at the Erie International Airport (North Coast Air Hangar of Asbury Rd on Kudlak Drive)
Scouts will be able to earn the Aviation Merit Badge. Throughout the day Scouts will hear presentations on aviation, learn how pilots plot courses (and plot one themselves), get a behind the scenes tour of the airport, help a pilot go through pre-flight inspections of a plane, and create their own glider to be used in a friendly competition.
There will be several aircraft on display, along with the pilots to answer any questions. Don't forget to bring a friend!
Registration is simple and only $5 if paid by August 14th or $10 afterwards. Just sign up at the Scout Office using the form below. There must be leadership from each unit sufficient for their Scouts attending. Registration Deadline is August 15th
Lastly, it is unfortunate, but we are not able to allow flights during this event for Scouts.
