As part of International Learn to Fly Day on May 15, the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) and Cessna Aircraft Co. have produced a Learn to Fly seminar. A customizable template of the presentation is being made available to Cessna’s global network of more than 280 Cessna Pilot Centers (CPCs) for use not only on Learn to Fly Day, but throughout the year during other events as well.
Most CPCs plan to participate in Learn to Fly Day, according to SAFE officials, who note that anyone who visits and registers with a domestic CPC on the day of the event will be eligible for two drawings: First prize is a $10,000 flight training credit at a CPC; second prize is a $5,000 flight training credit at a CPC. In addition, participating CPCs around the U.S. will hold local drawings for a free Cessna Sport/Private kit and a first flight lesson.
EAA‘s International Learn to Fly Day is designed to raise interest in flying and encourage current pilots to get individuals involved in aviation.
