FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2012) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, in conjunction with the Kentucky National Guard, will host Aviation Day at Capital City Airport in Frankfort, Saturday, Sept. 22. The event is 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT.
“The purpose of Aviation Day is to highlight the Capital City Airport by giving folks an opportunity to come out and see the wide variety of aircraft that fly in here,” airport Assistant Director Scott Shannon said. “We’ll have civilian, private and military aircraft on display."
In addition to seeing aircraft up close, free airplane rides will be available for youths at least 8 years old. Flights for adults will also be available for a donation to the Kentucky Institute for Aerospace Education.
