Pearson hosts multifaceted aviation fair



Hudsons Bay — The first Aviation Resource Fair at Pearson Field was a big success, according to director Laureano Mier. More than 300 visitors of all ages turned out April 13 to learn about the history and science of flight and flying machines, careers in flight and air traffic control, airline transportation, search-and-rescue operations and summer camp opportunities. Visitor Carter Strader won an introductory flight lesson from Aero Maintenance Flight Center. The whole affair was sponsored by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
