WHO TV’s lead story at 6pm this past Saturday was the great time dozens of kids had at the Iowa Aviation Promotion Group youth camp and EAA Young Eagles Rally that morning. WATCH THE STORY AT THIS LINK BELOW…
IAPG and EAA Chapter 135 partner to put on the FREE programs for kids each year in Ankeny. The aviation camp program includes workshops in principles of flight, airport operations, aviation careers and other topics. EAA 135 provides 39 young eagles rides concurrently.
After the program, participants ages 9-14 recieve a free FlyIowa T shirt, balsa plane and pizza!
IAPG helps make similar programs possible around the state. Kids at airports in Mason City, Clinton, Washington and others will also have opportunities this summer. Since 2006, over 3000 children have participated. Some, like my son Ryan end up attending week long aviation camps at Oshkosh!
Your membership and support of IAPG makes programs like this possible! The future of aviation in Iowa is bright with your continued support…
