National Aviation Day 2018 @ Redlands Airport

If you missed it, we had a great time celebrating National Aviation Day Saturday August 18th. Our National Aviation Day event accomplished the intent of the holiday. We definitely promoted aviation to the community at large!

EAA Chapter 845 flew 35 kids and a couple of adults. They great turnout of generous pilots that volunteered their time and aircraft to fly these “Young Eagles”.  I am sure they inspired some of these kids to be future pilots or mechanics.

Our guests enjoyed music on the lobby patio while they visited and enjoyed lunch. No one left hungry!

We held our 1st Spot Landing Contest and appeared to be a big hit. 14 brave pilots slugged it out to win Aircraft Spruce Gift Cards and recognition as the Spot Landing Champs

Here is a link to some photos we have posted on our website under the photos tab. Click on this link: National Aviation Day 2018.  Enjoy!
