Kids fly free at Lake Tahoe airport Saturday

Children age 8-17 can fly for free starting at 8 a.m. at the Lake Tahoe Airport courtesy of the Truckee Tahoe Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association. All children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The mission of this event is to provide young aviators with a free flight experience at Lake Tahoe Airport. As a result of last week’s high winds, the event was postponed. Saturday is the rescheduled date.

Free airplane rides are subject to weather, in addition to pilot and aircraft availability. Children are to arrive at the terminal building at Lake Tahoe Airport accompanied by their parents and proceed downstairs to the lower level entrance where registration will take place. Parents are encouraged to view the flight from The Flight Deck Restaurant on the upper level of the terminal building. For additional information, e-mail Charlie White
