RALEIGH-The N.C. Department of Transportation Division of Aviation will participate in the Roanoke Valley Wings and Wheels Fly-in at the Halifax Northampton Regional Airport in Halifax on May 30. Gates open for the event at 9 a.m. and the event will last from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The event will bring pilots and local communities together to enjoy seminars, aircraft displays, Remote Controlled aircraft demonstrations, classic cars, musical entertainment, family activities, motorcycles, airplane rides, vendors and great food.
Pilots will have the opportunities to attend a pilot safety seminar, network with peers and get rides in the Allegro Light Sport and Trike (Weight Shift Control) Aircraft.
Tom Freeman, NCDOT aviation safety specialist and Dave Allison from Crane Aerospace will present a safety seminar to pilots titled, "Flight 5481 Unraveled" at 11 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. This seminar features the crash of a small commuter aircraft in 2003 at the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport and how that incident forever changed Dave Allison's perspective on aviation safety.
