International Learn to Fly Day event planned for FDK

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is teaming with Maryland’s Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK) 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’s 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,” continued Miculka. “And this event is a great opportunity to get all your questions answered.”
