Many people from all walks of life learn to fly every day. It is a very fun and challenging hobby, or can be made into a career!
The EAA announced International Learn to Fly Day in 2009 with the aim of growing the pilot population and educating the public about the importance and value of the airports in their communities. Many people don’t know what it takes to earn their wings. For many, flying is only something one daydreams about, because it is such an unknown, and it is up to pilots to invite others ‘across the fence’ and show them what it is all about. Airports as well are great unknowns, but they serve us and our communities – they are ours to visit too!
For Learn to Fly Day, we’re inviting area flight schools and flying clubs to visit the original terminal building at Hobby Airport and help us remove the mystery about becoming a pilot.
