Fun and Flight at Lee’s Summit Airport Open House this Saturday, June 21

June 18, 2014

EAA Young Eagles flights, children’s entertainment and more!

The Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport invites the community to its Airport Open House event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at the airport, 2751 NE Douglas St., Lee’s Summit, Mo.

Admission is free to this family-friendly event which offers fun and flight with static aircraft displays, aviation-related vendors, a hot air balloon launch, helicopter rides and much more.

Children ages eight to 17 have the opportunity to take flight as part of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Young Eagles program from 7:30 – 11:30 a.m. Parent or guardian permission is required. Children also can jump in the bouncy house, have their faces painted and explore the many aircraft on display. The EAA also is hosting an all-you-can eat pancake breakfast from 7:30 – 11 a.m. for only $5 per person. BBQ and Italian ice/gelato also will be available for purchase.

Be sure to visit the aviation-related vendor booths, such as Pilots N Paws, which provides pet rescue services, and Angel Flight, which provides charitable flights for healthcare needs. There also will be Airport Tours from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Several helicopters will be on site as well, including NewsChopper41 with KMBC-TV, and the Kansas City Police Department helicopter. Pilot/reporter Johnny Rowlands of KCCopters.com will provide short helicopter rides around the airport for a fee. For those preferring to keep their feet on the ground, a simulator experience also is available for a fee.

A special hot air balloon launch will take place at 7:30 a.m. prior to the start of the event.

The Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport is an important gateway that connects businesses across the country to Lee’s Summit and surrounding communities. Come see everything the Airport has to offer its customers and the community.
