A Little History about International Learn to Fly Day
International Learn to Fly Day is a cooperative effort set in motion by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) (http://www.eaa.org/) of pilots, companies, governments, and organizations in countries around the world to raise interest in flying and encourage current pilots to get others involved in aviation.
International Learn to Fly Day was announced at EAA (http://www.eaa.org/) AirVenture Oshkosh (http://www.airventure.org/) 2009 by EAA President and Chairman Tom Poberezny, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) (http://www.aopa.org/) President and CEO Craig Fuller, REMOS (http://www.remos.com/) GmbH CEO Corbin Huber, NAFI (http://www.nafinet.org/) Executive Director Jason Blair, and others.
International Learn to Fly Day is held the third Saturday of May.
