NORTH NORWICH Ė A large assortment of aircraft, in addition to airplane rides and air shows, highlight the 18th annual Chenango County Airport Day coming up next weekend at the Lt. Warren E. Eaton Airport in North Norwich.
The free event begins at 7 a.m. June 14 with a pancake breakfast. Sign ups for orientation flights begin at 8 a.m., with airshow activities running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Plane rides, sponsored by the local chapter of Young Eagles, are free to children ages 8 to 17 years old. The Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.
