Aviation Explorer Post Open House Print
Wednesday, October 12 2016, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

This October, Balloons Over Morgantown returns, and the Aviation Career Explorer Post will be there!

Join us at University Motors on Don Knotts Boulevard on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 from 6 to 8 pm and learn more about the Aviation Careers Explorer Post at our Open House. We will be recruiting new members for this exciting program, which meets one evening each month to experience hands-on activities relating to the aviation industry. On this special Wednesday evening, those joining the Explorer Post will have the opportunity to fly in a tethered hot air balloon and can even log the pilot time!

Come out the night before, Tuesday, October 11, at University Motors from 6-8pm for free tethered balloon rides, but on Wednesday, the Explorers are the balloonists!

This precedes the University Motors’ Balloons Over Morgantown 2016 event that officially begins at Mylan Park with a Night Glow on Thursday, followed by mass ascensions of balloon from the Morgantown Airport throughout Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Ballooning is just a portion of what the Aviation Careers Explorer Post is involved with. Last year, they operated the flight simulators, had first-hand experience with airport equipment such as aircraft de-icing vehicles, learned about Search and Rescue, visited the Jet Center to see aircraft maintenance, and toured the Pratt and Whitney jet engine repair facility in Clarksburg.

We're planning some new and exciting aviation experiences so, join the fun and learn about aviation careers!

Bring a friend or two with you on Wednesday, October 12 at University Motors, Don Knotts Boulevard, Morgantown and get up in the air!
