Wings, Water and Wheels
A family-friendly event comes to the Laconia Airport on June 2nd.

Laconia, NH - WinnAero, the non-profit education group based at the Laconia Airport, is pleased to announce its Wings, Water and Wheels Touch a Plane, Touch a Truck Event scheduled for June 2 at the Airport. The family event runs from 10 AM to 2 PM, rain or shine. Kids of all ages can get up close and personal with various airplanes, large construction trucks, a NASCAR race vehicle from NHMS, police cars, fire trucks, snow plows, ambulances, boats and other vehicles.

Admission to the June 2nd event is just a suggested $5 donation per person with a maximum donation of $20 per family. This is WinnAero's major fundraiser for the year and donations are tax deductible. The Touch a Plane Plus event is supported by the Laconia Airport Authority, the local chapter of the EAA and assisted by volunteers from the Civil Air Patrol and the Gilford High School technology education classes.

In addition to the planes and other vehicles, local chapter 1516 pilots of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the World's largest recreational pilots' association, will be on hand to offer free orientation flights for youths between 8 - 17 years of age. Parents or Guardians of participants must sign the EAA registration and liability release forms available at the event. Participants will receive a safety briefing by an experienced pilot prior to departure.

For less adventurous souls, there will be a WinnAero Flight Simulator available to all to try their skill at flying without leaving the ground! Pilots and other aviation experts plus vehicle operators and safety services personnel will be available to speak with the public. Parents are urged to bring the kids and their cameras to capture some great moments. Local companies who support WinnAero will have informational tables available to meet the public. Businesses interested in adding their vehicle to the displays or in placing a company promotional banner on display at the event may contact dwcaron@hotmail.com or Mordonsan@aol.com.

WinnAero is the STEM education non-profit for youth which approaches Science, Technology, Engineering and Math subjects from an aviation and aerospace perspective. The group sponsors summertime ACE Academies for Elementary, Middle and High School-aged students plus teacher professional development workshops throughout the year.

Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) pilots donate their time and personal aircraft to make dreams of flight a reality for youth. For more information about EAA's Young Eagles Program, visit www.youngeagles.org.
