Young people seemed thrilled to have had a chance to explore the world of aviation when the East Hampton Airport and Sound Aircraft Services hosted a family day, “Just Plane Fun Day 2017,” at The East Hampton Airport on Sept. 9.
Co-sponsored by the Hampton Flyers Association, the event combined education, career counseling and fun activities while showcasing the airport as a valuable community asset.
