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, April 22, 2006 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date is Sunday, April 23.

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.

The 20-minute ride is a beautiful way to see the area, according to 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 in May.

The Trenton-Mercer Airport is located in Ewing Township. Visitors should take I-95 to the Scotch Road exit, then follow the signs to Ronson Aviation. The college’s hangar is down the road to the right of Ronson. Food and beverages will be available. Call 609-530-1272 for more information.
