Willits Municipal Airport and the City of Willits presents their first annual Discover Flying Day, Saturday, March 1, 2014, beginning at 10 a.m. Airport Manager Dan Ramsey says, “If you’ve ever wondered what flying an airplane feels like — or you’d like to restart or return to flying — plan to attend this fun and free event at the Willits Airport this Saturday. Experienced pilots and flight instructors will answer your questions about what flying an airplane is like, where you can fly in your own airplane, the requirements for getting a pilot’s license, the new light-sport license and aircraft, how to be a frugal pilot and cut costs without cutting safety, and considering a partnership or flying club. You can ask questions of experienced pilots to see if flying is right for you.”
Contemporary and Historic Aircraft will be on display. If the weather is good, some participants may get to go flying that day. In addition, Ukiah Aviation will hold a drawing for a free Introductory Flight and answer questions about an upcoming Ground School.
Contact Willits Airport Manager Dan Ramsey (manager [at] willitsairport.com) for more information. Coffee, donuts and soda will be served. Bring a friend or spouse. The event is open to all ages. It’s all free. Don’t put you dream of flying off any longer! Join is for Discover Flying Day!
