The Civil Air Patrol will have some hands-on activities. The Military History Center of the Carolinas will bring historic vehicles to view and ride.
“Anytime we are able to highlight the opportunities that aviation has for our youth by bringing historic planes, tours, or educating people about the airport and our Community Corridor, we are excited to do so,” said James Stephens, Airport Director for GMU. “The Warbird Adventures team really does a fantastic job and we know this is going to be a great event.”
All the events in the Community Corridor hosted by GMU are meant to inspire our community to fall in love with aviation. The Community Corridor on the South Ramp of the Greenville Downtown Airport has great venues like the Runway Café, Runway Park, Military History Museum, and Takeoff Mini-Golf for families a place to enjoy.
