Youth get introduction to flight
The airspace around the Bemidji Regional Airport was busy Saturday as more than 100 youth went on free flights during the Young Eagles Rally.
The event, sponsored by the local Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1397, drew 112 participants, more than ever before, said Capt.
Steve McGuirk, a member of both the EAA and the Civil Air Patrol Northland Composite Squadron.
"We have never had this many," McGuirk said. "It was a team effort."
