[ARCHIVED] Airport to hold open house, youth rally

On Saturday, Sept. 11, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., an Airport Open House and Young Eagles Rally will be held at the Danville Regional Airport. Pilots from Virginia and North Carolina will complete free plane rides for children ages 8 to 17, who have preregistered for the Young Eagles Rally.

Please visit www.youngeaglesday.org to register.

Airport Open House activities include tours of Averett University’s Flight Center, the Civil Air Patrol and the airport’s Operations Tower. Also, the Danville Science Center will demonstrate various concepts of flight relating to lift, drag, thrust, and rocket and rotary wing design, as guests construct and test a Hand Copter or Soda Straw Rocket. Individuals get to take their creations home to continue the fun and introduce others to the world of aviation and aerospace engineering.

There is no charge to attend the open house and free refreshments will be provided to the public.

This event could be impacted by weather conditions and a rain date has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
