[ARCHIVED] Airport sets new date for open house, youth rally

A new date has been set for the Airport Open House and Young Eagles Rally at the Danville Regional Airport. The event now will be held on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

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.

Airport Open House activities include tours of Averett University’s Flight Center, the Civil Air Patrol and the airport’s Operations Tower.

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.
