ForestLakeAirport.org Daniel A. Deponti Airport (25D) - Forest Lake, MN
The 15th annual Forest Lake, MN Airport (25D) Open House and Fly-In Event is TENTATIVELY scheduled for August 20, 2016 from 7am until 4pm on the Southeast end of the airport near the new hangars.
Runway construction may be underway in August closing the airport for several weeks, possibly forcing us to cancel the 2016 event. We will update this notice when we know more about the construction schedule.
Young Eagles demonstration rides last approximately 10 to 15 minutes, and are provided free of charge to children 8 to 17 years of age to provide a meaningful flight experience in a General Aviation aircraft.
A parent or guardian must accompany the child to the airport to be eligible.
These flights are provided courtesy of local EAA members. Additional information on this program can be found at www.YoungEagles.org
Through the generous volunteer efforts of local EAA pilots at the 2015 Fly-In, 157 children were provided demonstration rides under the Young Eagles Program. The process involved:
1) Registering your child at one of the available laptop computers at the event. 2) Waiting to be boarded on an aircraft for their flight.
To eliminate your time waiting to register at the event, you may Pre-Register on this link.
Weather permitting, rides will begin at approximately 8:30am.
If rider turnout is high, you may spend some time waiting.
Please understand that these rides are provided by local pilots donating their time, aircraft use, and fuel; every attempt will be made to provide every qualified child a ride at the event.
