The Vanderhoof Flying Club is currently planning our June 1st 2019 Young Eagles Day Event. If you are a currently licenced pilot with an aircraft, and would be interested in sharing the experience of flight with some young folks ages 8-17, please get in touch with us! You can contact form on our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org
