AOPA to host International Learn to Fly Day June 2AOPA to host International Learn to Fly Day June 2

AOPA is teaming with Maryland’s Frederick Municipal Airport to host International Learn to Fly Day on Saturday, June 2. The event, part of a worldwide effort, will include a free day-long event designed to introduce the local community to general aviation.

From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., AOPA will offer free familiarization flights for attendees ages 8 and up (on a first-come, first-served basis), a static aircraft display, and aviation activities for everyone to enjoy.

“For many people, learning to fly is a dream, but they’re not sure what it takes or how to get started,” said Brittney Miculka, AOPA manager of prospective pilot and youth outreach. “Through the generous participation of Frederick-area pilots, these dreamers can go up on a free flight, which will help them decide if they’re interested in pursuing flight training now or in the future.

“Learning to fly is a life-changing experience and a tremendously fulfilling accomplishment. And this event is a great opportunity to get all your questions answered.”
