Airport Appreciation Days coming

Saturday, August 30, 2008

The annual Airport Appreciation Days at the Putnam County Airport is set for Sept. 6 and 7.

The EAA Chapter 1374 and Dixie Chopper Business Center and the Putnam County Board of Aviation sponsor the event.

Young people ages 8-17 are invited to take part in a free airplane ride with parental or guardian permission.

To take part in these rides, a registration form must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian at the airport prior to the ride.

Students will fly free and receive an official Young Eagle certificate. Their name will then be entered in the world's largest logbook at EAA headquarters in Oshkosh, Wisc.

Adults and children under the age of eight may also have an airplane ride for a nominal fee.

Saturday and Sunday there will be paid helicopter rides available for all ages.

The Putnam County Rods-n-Relics car show will be held on Saturday also. The car show will award plaques and prizes on various categories.

Final Approach Bistro will serve food and drinks in the Hanger both days.

If there are weather issues, activities will still take place in the hangar.
