ATI Celebration Rescheduled

Event Rescheduled for April 8, 2017:

The event that was originally scheduled as Aviation Trail's Celebration of the 113th Anniversary of FIRST POWERED FLIGHT, planned for December 17, 2016, had to be postponed due to unforeseeable circumstances. A new date has been announced, and the "Celebration Event" will now be held on April 8, 2017. Since that date is close to the 150th anniversary of Wilbur Wright's birth (April 16, 1867) the theme will be a "Celebration of Wilbur Wright's Birthday", as well as a belated celebration of the first powered flight. The program will still be held at Sinclair Community College, as originally planned.

The event will be held in the UAS Indoor Flying Pavilion at Sinclair Community College (Building 18), with an open house at the National UAS Training & Certification Center (Building 13) which is home to the nation’s first permanent, custom-built unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flying facility. There will be two featured speakers at the event: Dr. Andrew Shepherd and Dr. Ronald Storm, both from Sinclair Community College and both Ohioans.

Further details, with schedule, times, menu, and reservation information will be announced soon.
