Kid's Aviation Day in Pasco

Posted: Updated:
PASCO, Wash. -- Kids from across the Tri-Cities got together in Pasco today to learn about flying. Both the kids and their teachers shared a tremendous enthusiasm for taking to the skies.

Kids from 9 to 16 came out to Bergstrom's air field to learn everything from preflight set-up to how weather effects flight conditions. They even learned how much math is involved in navigating a flight. Both kids and teachers described their passion for flight.

The event was organized by an international women's pilot group called the Ninety-Nines. Most of the organizers have a long history flying and are private plane owners.
