The Mansfield Aviation Club, Experimental Aircraft Association, and Mansfield Lahm Airport will be offering free airplane rides to young people between the ages of 8 and 17 through the Young Eagles program.

The event takes place on Saturday, July 1st as part of the Airport Day event that begins at 8 AM with a Pancake Breakfast hosted by the Aviation Club at the pavilion, and a Classic Car Show.

Registration will begin at 9:30 AM on the aircraft parking ramp just outside the Subway Cafe. A parent or legal guardian must accompany their child to complete the registration process.

EAA has sponsored these flights since 1991 with more than 2 million young people being provided a meaningful flight experience – free of charge. Flights are provided through the generous efforts of local MAC/EAA member pilots.
