Let's Fly Now! - Jackson, TN
Getting youth excited about aviation
October and November 2018 found Jackson, TN abuzz with aviation activity as the Memphis Chapter of the 99s co-hosted a Let's Fly Now! event at the McKeller Airport. Twenty-four local youth including aviation explorers and Boys and Girls Club members joined Aviation Adventures in learning about runways, aviation careers, flying the pattern and communications before launching out on their first ever small airplane flight. We would like to thank the many volunteers and The Ninety-Nines who turned out to make this a fun and educational experience for all.
