The Taos Youth Flight Rally event created to interest young people in aviation. As part of the event is Free airplane rides. We hope to build one-to-one relationships between our Taos Local Pilots and young people, giving a new generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that exist in the world of aviation.
Pilots at the event will also explain more about their airplanes allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure each flight is conducted in a safe manner. Each pilot volunteers their time, fuel and aircraft so the flights can be provided free of charge for interested young people. Flights will begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. through 11:30 a.m.
