The Leadership Union 2014 class, a program sponsored by the Blairsville-Union County Chamber of Commerce, is hosting a community project on Saturday March 29, 2014 called Airport Awareness Day. This event has been created to increase the awareness of the current and proposed facilities at the Blairsville Municipal Airport, located off Old Blue Ridge Highway, to the local residents, the surrounding counties, and the airports within a 150 mile radius of Blairsville. Attendees will gain a glimpse of the broad historical aspect of aviation in our region and be able to take a look at what the future holds for the local airport.
This is a great educational FREE family fun day out. There will be static displays and aircraft presentations throughout the event. There will be coloring contests, aircraft imitation exercises for the children, and goodie bags for the first 100 guests provided by local businesses! The Civil Air Patrol will be available for questions and demonstrations. They will be conducting their Open House in conjunction with the Airport Awareness Day and will have their headquarters open for community members to see all of the available resources and technology used to train their cadets. During the event the cadets will perform drills for the public’s enjoyment.
Parking will be available at the United Community Bank building within the Airport Industrial Park and Mountain View RV Resort adjacent to the Airport. Airport Awareness Day will start at 10:00am and end at 2:00pm with a light lunch served around noon.
