"Get Airborne: What You Need to Know” will provide participants with the basics of aviation and learning to fly through eight dedicated learning stations led by industry professionals. During lunch (provided by AOPA), participants will be entertained by Luke Hickerson and John Ponts, from the TV show, Flying Wild Alaska, who will talk about their exciting flying experiences.
