THE VAN WERT COUNTY WELCOMES ANOTHER NEW YEAR AND LOOKS FORWARD TO MEETING NEW FRIENDS TO THE EXCITING WORLD OF AVIATION. THE INDUSTRY IS PRIMED FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF PILOTS WITH PROGRAMS FROM THE EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) AND THE AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association). BOTH OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS HAVE FREE TRAINING MATERIAL AND PROGRAMS TO SAVE EXPENSES FOR An AVIATION CARREER. THE EAA OFFERS its “YOUNG EAGLES PROGRAM” AND THE AOPA OFFERS IT’S “AV8RS PROGRAM” FOR TEENS AGES 13 TO 18. THE VAN WERT AIRPORT IS HERE TO HELP WITH THAT INTRODUCTION RIGHT HERE AT YOUR BACK DOOR!
The Van Wert County Airport is also the home of Charter Number: GLR OH296 of the Civil Air Patrol.
