Have your kids become “Young Eagles” at the Sierra Vista Municipal Airport during the 25th Annual Airport Fly-in and Open House. The first 200 children ages 8 through 17 can take an exciting airplane flight for free! Flights will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and there is a limit of one per person. Permission forms will be available at the event and must be signed by a parent or guardian.
Sponsored by Chapter 776 of the Experimental Aircraft Association in cooperation with the City of Sierra Vista Public Works Department, the open house introduces aviation to children and promotes general aviation activities available at the Sierra Vista Municipal Airport. To date, Sierra Vista EAA Young Eagle pilots have flown more than 7,000 children. All flights are conducted by certified pilots in certificated airplanes, adhere to strict safety guidelines, and comply with insurance policy provisions and other regulations.
In addition to the flights, the open house features aircraft displays and great food. There is a pancake breakfast from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. It costs $5 for adults and $3 for children under age 12.
The Sierra Vista Municipal Airport is located at 1800 Airport Drive, north of the Highway 90 and Buffalo Soldier Trail intersection. For more information, contact Bobbie Freeman at (520) 458-5775 or Bobbie.Freeman@nullSierraVistaAZ.gov.
