New Youth Aviation Program Ready for Take Off in TC

Posted: Updated:

A brand new program is getting ready for take off here in Northern Michigan.

Aviation Explorers will give local youth age 14-20 a chance to focus on flight (and have a lot of fun along the way).

(The new Aviation Explorers post will operate as a partnership between the Experimental Aircraft Association Post 234, U.S. Coast Guard Traverse City and Northwestern Michigan College.  The Open House will take place Wednesday, February 1st from 7-9pm at NMC's Parsons-Stulen Building located at 2600 Aero Park Drive in Traverse City.  For more information, contact Bill Donberg at 231-409-5780 or EAA Chapter 234 via email at pres@eaa234.org or head to the link posted on the left.)
