National Aviation Day is the US national holiday to celebrate the development of aviation. The holiday was established in 1939 by President Franklin D Roosevelt. It is observed officially on August 19th and coincides with Orville Wright’s birthday. Orville and his brother Wilbur invented the first successful powered aircraft in 1903. The presidential proclamation for the holiday encourages citizens to observe the day with activities that promote interest in aviation. So, in accordance with the proclamation we will once again celebrate aviation at Redlands Airport on Saturday August 18th. Its just easier on that day.

Our EAA Chapter 845 will be flying Young Eagles in the morning. Pilot briefing will be at 8:30 am and Young Eagles flights start at 9 am. Kids with an adult must register between 9-10. For more info contact Beverly @909-771-3279. The Redlands Airport Association will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs and serving them with all the fix-in’s and cold drinks between 11 am and 2 pm. Lunch is $7.
