International Learn to Fly Day was created to invite people interested in the world of flight to discover more by meeting local aviators and discovering the initial steps toward "living the dream" of personal flight. Nearly 600,000 people from all walks of life in the U.S. are licensed pilots, but millions more have dreamed of joining that group.
During the event, which is free of charge, guests will discover how learning to fly is not as time-consuming or expensive as people might think. Pilots, flight instructors and aircraft owners will be available to discuss the possibilities and enjoyment available in aviation.
The May 21 event in Greencastle will be held at Dixie Chopper Business Center at the airport. It is scheduled from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase.
The 160,000 EAA members and 1,000 local chapters enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.
