EAA’s Ford Tri-Motor Takes to the Skies

Residents are invited to experience the Golden Age of Aviation this weekend at the Putnam County Regional Airport, by flying on the Ford Tri-Motor Airplane.  They will be offering rides at $75 for adults Children 17 and under $50.  Rides will take place 9 am to 5 pm Friday through Sunday.  Visit FLYTHEFORD.ORG or call 877-952-5395.

In addition, after the terrible weather they had Airport Appreciation Days. EAA Chapter 1374 has decided to have another Young Eagle Rally.

EAA Young Eagle Rally – Ages 8 -17
10:00 am To 5:00 pm

If your child is between ages 8-17, they have the opportunity to go flying with an EAA member volunteer pilot. Start your aviation adventure at the event!

Get ready to have the experience of your lifetime. We’ll show you how to become a Young Eagle and taste the freedom of flight that most people only dream about.


Here’s how the flight will go:
1. On the ground
A pilot explains what will happen during the flight. You may talk about the airplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” preflight inspection of the airplane.

2. Just before takeoff
Your pilot explains the interior of the airplane, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.

3. In the air
The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls!

4. Back on the ground
There’s more time for you to ask questions about the flight and the aviation field. A pilot and/or EAA Volunteer will be happy to tell you more about flying

You also get an official Young Eagles logbook with a personal code to activate your free EAA Student Membership and Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course.
