Aviation lovers of all ages will be able to experience the joy of flying, either in the air or in a simulator, for the second annual Learn to Fly Day at Mountain Ridge Helicopters, with Leading Edge Aviation on May 21.
Mountain Ridge Helicopters and Leading Edge Aviation have teamed up with the EAA to bring awareness and interest in flying and to encourage the aviation community to reach out to those with a passion for aviation and get them involved. The event will go from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Mountain Ridge Helicopters at the Logan Cache Airport.
Both flight schools will be giving presentations on Learning to Fly, free simulator flights, tours of the flight schools and giving people the opportunity to fly a helicopter or airplane for only $59! Other goodies include a free lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and mingling with pilots, flight instructors, industry professionals, and Mountain American Credit Union.
Other participating organizations include the Logan City Fire Department, Air Med, New Air Helicopters, Southwest, and the Logan Cache Airport Authority. Advanced reservations are required for the introductory flights.
“We want everyone who has ever been interested in becoming a pilot, either helicopter or fixed wing, to know that they can do it!” said Brett Reeder, the event’s organizer and an instructor at Mountain Ridge Helicopters. “Learning to fly is accessible and pilots are needed all over the world!”
The event is free to all ages although there may be age restrictions on the flight lessons. For more information, go to www.mountainridgeheli.com, facebook.com/mountainridgeheli or call (435) 752-3828 to make an introductory flight reservation.
