Aircraft Fly-In and Young Eagles flights for children - Saturday, August 11, 2018

The Aviation Museum of New Hampshire announces its 4th annual Aircraft Fly-In featuring homebuilt experimental, antique and vintage aircraft at the museum to be held Saturday, August 11, 2018. Pilots may fly-in 9:00AM – 2:00PM.  Join us for this exciting event, from 10AM - 2PM! ALL aircraft welcome! This year we are pleased to partner with the Young Eagles organization, who will be offering free flights for children ages 8 - 17!  In the event of rain, the museum will remain open, along with indoor demonstrations and activities. 

"Homebuilt" aircraft, also known as "Experimental" aircraft, have existed since the Wright Brothers pioneered powered flight with their "1903 Flyer" built in their bicycle shop. According to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), homebuilts are the fastest growing segment of new aircraft in the United States, and those attending this event will see just how sophisticated these aircraft have become.  In addition to the homebuilts, there will be several vintage aircraft, often older than the pilots flying them but lovingly restored and cared for!  The homebuilt aircraft on display will have a chance to win a People's Choice Award and a Kid's Choice Award, plus all aircraft will be eligible for an overall Favorite Airplane Award.  All awards will be presented during the event
 
There will be many aviation activities throughout the 

day including demonstrations of aircraft fabric covering, sheet metal riveting, conversations with the aircraft pilots, and tours of the Museum's exhibits.  Activities for children will include a kids' aircraft wing rib building project and paper airplane building.  Raffle tickets may be purchased for a chance to win a variety of prizes. Coffee, pastries, B's Tacos, hot dogs, Lix ice cream and a variety of other foods will be available for purchase.  Join us for this exciting, fun-filled day of aircraft and exhibits at the Aviation Museum of NH, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport!

PILOTS:  Just tell the tower that you are parking at the Museum!  No problem if you haven't pre-registered.  Just fly on in!

For pilot questions call Bob at 603-490-8215.
