Minnesota Aviators Needed For International Learn To Fly Day

AirSpace Minnesota is seeking volunteers to celebrate the importance of aviation to Minnesota’s economic future, just as they did in 1938 during the National Air Mail Week Campaign.

During this event created by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the U.S. Postmaster-General, 210 Minnesota cities adopted special seals, and pilots from around the state delivered the mail to Wold-Chamberlain Field (now Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport) for a major celebration. The 75th anniversary of this event coincides with “International Learn To Fly Day,” Saturday, May 18, 2013, an annual event to support flying through airport open houses, flights and special events.

Pilots wishing to participate should contact Joe Harris, Anoka County – Blaine Airport Manager, at joe.harris@mspmac.org, 763-717-0001.

To sign up as a community liaison, contact Kristi Rollag Wangstad, AirSpace Minnesota President, at krw@airspacemn.org, 952-473-3066 (www.airspacemn.org).
