We at GTO Aviation also know how to have some fun! Every other month during the summer and fall seasons, GTO Aviation and the local EAA Chapter put on Fly-Ins. These bi-monthly parties are held in one of our large corporate hangars where the EAA cooks the absolute best breakfast including eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes waffles, pastries, fresh fruit, hashbrown casserole and biscuits and gravy.
After everybody has some food in their stomachs, we try to shake it up a bit. Some of the base customers donate their time and airplanes by giving children under the age of 16 the chance to earn their own wings. Kids can become Young Eagle certified by taking a flight with one of the EAA pilots.
Please call GTO Aviation for dates and times of upcoming events!
