Thanks Brandon flight center

I'd just like to say thanks to the Brandon flight Center for the bbq/free scenic flights today. I'd like to thank all the volunteers that gave their time to put on this event. I know it isn't cheap to fly aircraft and there were a few club members as well who brought their own planes out on their own dime to give people a flight experience that they otherwise might not have been able to do. My kids and I had the opportunity to go up for a flight and they loved it. We're hooked. The staff and volunteers were excellent and catered to everyone young and old. The skydiving was also fun to watch. Also air traffic control had a huge amount of air traffic to contend with and did an excellent job as well. Kudos to all of you. It really meant a lot to my kids.

That is

Kind of what I was thinking too.  
Sounds like it was not widely advertised.

We were busy yesterday with another activity, but I have also thought this about quite a few events.  
I am not the only one missing the announcements of events, obviously. Where are the places where these events are advertised so those of us currently missing them can become more aware of them?

I did not hear about this event neither. Obviously they did not have good advertisement. We always look for fun things to do in Brandon. Wish I knew about this .  
Sledhead, how did you find out about the event?

Fly in/drive in bbq

Saw it on the Brandon flying club website. I've always had an interest in aviation so I check their website once in a while to see if there's anything happening. It was a good turnout.

I saw

it on their Facebook page through my news feeds. It's actually getting harder to advertise even with all of the possible sources, there's too many. Not everyone has Facebook, reads the local papers, listen to local radio, has Twitter, reads eBrandon. And even then, even when advertising people will still say they didn't know.

Brandn Flight Center. Great place to learn.

A shout our for Brandon Flight Center. I was at the Fly / Drive/ Walk in on Saturday. A wonderful time was had.  
I learned to fly at BFC and can assure anyone who wants to learn to fly they treat you with kindness and they work at your pace.  
I can thoroughly recommend this as THE place to learn to fly.

I find Brandon

has very good reporting of events...once they are done! To bad local news couldn't have stories about what is coming...instead of what has passed

Brandon Flight Centre

I'd like to say thank you as well. My wife and I were lucky enough to get a free sightseeing flight, with pilot Ryan.
