This free event is an opportunity to talk with local pilots, see aircrafts up close, and explore opportunities with local colleges and flight schools. There will also be food vendors.

“Paine Field Community Day is all about exposing youth of our community to the world of aviation. This year’s Young Eagles rally registration is full and we expect to fly about 300 youth with about 30+ pilots and planes,” according to the Paine Field website.

The community day is organized collaboratively by airport staff, the Washington Pilots Association, and the EAA Young Eagles program, and sponsored by Propeller Airports and Alaska Airlines.

Due to anticipated high traffic volumes on Airport Road near the Airport Recycling and Transfer Station (ARTS), travelers are strongly encouraged to follow the driving directions here to reach Paine Field Community Day.

Shuttle service will be provided from the parking lots to the event entrance, but you can also walk to the entrance via the sidewalks on 109th St. SW.
