The Green Mountain Flyers - Chapter 968 of the Experimental Aircraft Association is dedicated to promoting general aviation to the public by offering free airplane rides to young and old, supporting aircraft restoration and experimental aircraft construction. For more information, and to receive event and meeting announcements, please send your name and e-mail address to the chapter secretary at: EAA968@vermontel.net
On September 21-23 we are hosting EAA's B-17, Aluminum Overcast, for its first visit into the northern reaches of New England
Flights will occur in the mornings from 10am till 1pm and ground tours in the afternoons from 2pm till 5pm. Complete information on flights and ground tours at B17.org.
Along with this tour stop we will have a two-day Young Eagles Rally with an emphasis on both modern and historic aircraft. Our intention with this YE rally is to add some history of aviation along with the science and math emphasis the YE events already provide.
We feel it is important to do our part in keeping the young ones informed about what our parents and grandparents have done for freedom in this world.
On this weekend we will also be running the grills hosting an all-day fly-in, as well as working to feed the many who attend the tour.
Additional menu items will be available at the Hangar Cafe upstairs in the terminal building.
Along with our B-17 weekend the Civil Air Patrol will be having their open house here at Rutland airport on Saturday the 22nd. Be sure to visit them to learn all that they offer for youth and adults in community and aviation activities
