Special Activities Planned for Leesburg Airport Open House

The Leesburg Executive Airport is reprising its popular open house from last year. This year’s event is scheduled for 2-6 p.m. Sunday, June 24.

Many of the aviation businesses based at the airport will have informational displays in the terminal building. Representatives from Angel Flight and Pilots N Paws will be on hand to discuss their charitable organizations’ free air transportation services for medical patients, rescue pets, and others in need. One of the PHI Medical med-evac helicopter crews will be available to answer questions and, barring an emergency call, visitors will be able to view the med-evac helicopter.

The flight schools that operate out of the Leesburg airport will provide information about their flight training programs and will offer visitors an up-close view of the advanced aircraft and flight simulators available for training.

Visitors will be able to tour the Remote Air Traffic Control Tower center currently in testing and evaluation at the airport.  Food and beverages will be available throughout the event on the terminal patio.
