EAA chapter at Slatington Airport provides bikes for visiting pilots

Pilots flying into Pennsylvania’s Slatington Airport now have access to free trail bikes, thanks to the efforts of Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 855. According to a story at AOPA.org, Chapter President Gene Salvatore noted that the D&L Trail opened near the airport, running north to south from White Haven to Whitehall Township and beyond. “The greatest thing about the bike trail is that it passes right next to Slatington Airport,” he said. “Last summer as I biked the gap with my daughter Amanda, I started thinking about how nice it would be if pilots from the nearby cities of New York, Baltimore, and Washington could make the short flight into Slatington and take advantage of the great bike trails, hiking and fishing that the area offers.”
