Aviation Day Celebration at Butler Airport
Butler Airport has partnered with PennDOT aviation officials as part of the department’s National Aviation Day Celebrations being held on Saturday, Aug. 18, Sunday, Aug. 19 and Monday, Aug. 20, at 11 airports statewide.
The event, now in its third year in Pennsylvania, offers students the opportunity to participate in activities designed to meet Scouting aviation badge requirements, learn about aviation, and share in the 74th annual nationwide celebration.
National Aviation Day, established in 1939 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, is annually observed in the United States on Aug. 19 to celebrate the history of and promote interest in the development of aviation.
It coincides with the birthday of Orville Wright who, together with his brother Wilbur, made significant contributions to powered flight. Pennsylvania’s events will occur over three days as the national celebration occurs on a Sunday this year.
Monday, Aug. 20 – 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
