The community is invited to explore the world of aviation when the Port of Skagit hosts Community Day at Skagit Regional Airport from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 16. Admission is free.
Pilots may fly in to KBVS prior to the 11:00 seminar, or the 11:00 start time for the activities. Pat Donovan will be on the CTAF to help your arrival, and CAP marshallers will guide you to parking on the GA ramp. An early as possible arrival is best and relax at Flyers Restaurant. Directions to the seminar will be available at the Information booth by the terminal; the lectures are in first hanger just to the northwest of the terminal location.
The event will combine education, career counseling and fun activities while showcasing the airport as a valuable community asset. Events will take place at the airport, 15400 Airport Drive, Burlington.
The 2017 Community Day is made possible by Skagit Airport Support Association, Heritage Flight Museum and other airport businesses.
