National Aviation Day Celebration

Sat, Aug 17 at 09:00 AM + Add to Your Calendar

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. The proclamation for the holiday encourages citizens to observe the day with activities that promote interest in aviation. So, we will once again celebrate aviation at Redlands Airport on Saturday August 17th. EAA Chapter 845 will be flying Young Eagles in the morning.

Young Eagles flights start at 9 am. Kids between 8-17 with an adult must register to participate between 9-10. 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. Local pilots will be competing in a spot landing contest in the afternoon. Come out and watch the fun!
