Young Eagles flights will be taking off from Boire Field at the Nashua Airport on Saturday June 7th. If you are between the ages of 8 and 17 and interested in flying – or just seeing Nashua from the air – drop by the Nashua Airport to get a free ride!
There is no obligation; totally free, the flights are provided by local licensed pilots who want to bring their love of flying to others. Most of the planes are single-engine crafts based at the Nashua Airport. Participants must be 8 to 17 years old and be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Flights will be taking off every few minutes from 10AM to 1PM.
This international program is enjoyed by over 100,000 kids a year; over 1.6 million in 90 countries have participated. Kids taking a fight will receive a certificate and have their name entered in the Logbook at the Experimental Aircraft Association headquarters.
The planes will be leaving from Infinity Aviation, 117 Perimeter Road, at the Nashua Airport (Boire Field). No reservations required or accepted. In case of inclement weather, the Young Eagles Flights will be held on Sunday, June 8th. For more information about the Young Eagles Program, check out their website.
In 2010 students at Nashua High School South produced a great informative video about the Young Eagle Rally at the Nashua Airport. To see this video on YouTube, click here.
This spring’s Young Eagles Rally is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association, the International Aerobatic Club, and local businesses Infinity Aviation and the Midfield Cafe. For more information, call Greg Lison at Infinity Aviation: 603-598-4526.
