RAF Halton Young Flyers – Fri 20 Jun 14
The 15th Annual RAF Halton Young Flyers event will take place at RAF Halton Airfield on Friday 20th June 2014 (1600-2030hrs). The origin of the event is in the global Young Eagles programme which started in the late-90s with the aim of flying over one million children prior to the Centenary of Flight – although this was achieved in 2003, the RAF Halton event has been so successful that it continues as an annual occasion.
The RAF Halton Young Flyers provides children between the ages of 8-18 with a free flight in a light aircraft around the Vale of Aylesbury. To date, almost 1000 youngsters have enjoyed this aviation experience and returned home with a certificate to prove it! All costs are borne by the members of the RAF Halton Aero Club. To apply for a place in this year's Young Flyers contact the Project Officer, Nigel Marshal, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07967 752362. Service children will be given priority for bookings until mid-May 2014 – however, places are strictly limited.
