Aeroplanes, Trains, and Automobiles
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.
