Floatplane Discovery Flights at Lake Hood Seaplane Base

Members of the local chapters of EAA, Women in Aviation, and the Alaska Airmen’s Association partnered together to provide Young Eagles discovery flights to youth on July 28.   Thank you EAA Chapter 42 for guidance at the event, and to the Alaska Airmen’s Association for donating the use of their building and dock for the event. Kids who completed an essay on “Why I am interested in a floatplane ride” were invited to attend.
