WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- The public is invited to see the region from a new perspective -- soaring above Mercer County -- at Mercer County Community College's Flight Fair on Saturday, March 24, 2007, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date is Sunday, March 25.
Members of the college's Aviation faculty will offer small-plane rides, taking off from the college's hangar at Trenton-Mercer Airport. The cost is 20 cents per pound (weights are kept secret), with a minimum charge of $8 and a maximum of $22 per person.
20-minute ride is a beautiful way to see the area, says Aviation Professor
Jerry Kuhl. Proceeds will benefit the college's Flight Team, which took
first place at the Region VII competition of the National Intercollegiate
Flying Association last fall. Proceeds from this event will help the
team finance its trip to the national competition at Ohio State University
County Community College offers an associate degree program in Flight
Technology that attracts students from throughout the state and region.
The college owns a fleet of airplanes housed at the Trenton-Mercer Airport.
