Sequim: Pilots to take children flying this Saturday

Children interested in learning about aviation can experience flight first hand Saturday at Sequim Valley Airport.

Experimental Aircraft Association pilots will take children ages eight to 17 flying as part of their Young Eagles program. Parental permission is required.

Port Angeles pilot Paul Messinger said participating children will receive an introduction to aviation careers as well as going flying.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the airport, 468 Dorothy Hunt Lane.

In August, 131 children participated in a Young Eagles event at William R. Fairchild International Airport in Port Angeles.

For more information, call Messinger at 360-457-1711.
