Teaming with Maryland’s Frederick Municipal Airport, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is set to host International Learn to Fly Day on Saturday, June 2. The event, part of a worldwide effort, will include a free day-long event designed to introduce the local community to general aviation.
From 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., AOPA will offer free familiarization flights for attendees ages 8 and up (on a first-come, first-served basis), a static aircraft display, and aviation activities for everyone to enjoy.
Brittney Miculka, AOPA’s Manager of Prospective Pilot and Youth Outreach noted that for many people, learning to fly is a dream, but they’re not sure what it takes or how to get started. Through generous participation by Frederick-area pilots, folks will have the opportunity to take a free flight which will help them decide if they’re interested in pursuing flight training.
AOPA will also offer special introductory flights to members of the media who enroll in advance.
