Satur­day, Septem­ber 13, 2014 from 10 AM to 4 PM

This is the bian­nual open house and fun day at the Springville-Span­ish Fork air­port for young and old. Sev­en­teen thou­sand free coupons are be­ing handed out to kids. The sin­gle per­son ticket is $2 and fam­ily tick­ets are only $5. The event opens at 10 AM with Sky Divers leav­ing their air­plane about 5,000 feet above the air­port Drop Zone. As the name of the event im­plies, new and old air­planes will be on dis­play, model train en­thu­si­asts will have an ex­hibit, and the kids will be able to get a train ride around the air­port. A large col­lec­tion of an­tique and clas­sic ve­hi­cles will be on dis­play for the au­to­mo­bile en­thu­si­asts. To com­pli­ment all this ac­tiv­ity a live band is sched­uled for the cen­ter stage. What a fun multi-faceted day for the en­tire fam­ily.

A ma­jor event of the day will be FREE air­plane rides for the young peo­ple age 8 through 17. This will be done through the na­tional Young Ea­gles Pro­gram. Young­sters and a par­ent can reg­is­ter for the Young Ea­gle Flights start­ing at 10:30 AM fol­lowed by an ori­en­ta­tion to ex­plain how air­planes fly and then the flight. The goal of the Young Ea­gle flights at the Springvill-Span­ish Fork Air­port will be to fly as many as 200 young peo­ple. Each young­ster will re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate and a log­book pro­vid­ing a record of the flight.

Bring the whole fam­ily out for a day of fun at the Springville-Span­ish Fork Air­port Satur­day, Septem­ber 13.
