Every year on Memorial Day weekend, the town of Brookings holds its Azalea Festival in celebration of a local wild flower, the Azalea. The event lasts the entire weekend, with parades, music, food, and lots of other interesting activities. The Brookings Flying Club holds their annual Airport Day on Sunday of that weekend. This year it will be held on May 24, 2015.  The club will offer plane rides to the public for $20 per person. Kids under 14 accompanied by 2 adults will fly for free.  The club uses a reservation system that has worked very well.  A time slot is assigned ticket holder, and they can wander and do other things, and not have to stand in a long line.   The rides are very popular. Helicopter rides will be provided by Cal-Or Life Flight for $40 per person. A few years ago we had three T-28 Trojans arrive in formation, doing several low passes before landing and going on display all day.  All are welcome. There is no charge for the admission, but the Civil Air Patrol will ask for a $2 donation for autos. If you fly in, it's free. 

Brigadier General Chuck Yeager gave an hour talk for the Young Eagles Day to about 400 kids and adults at the Brookings Airport on Sunday, March 9, 2003. Young Eagle rides were to be given after the talk, but high wind, rain and fog forced the rides to be held at a date to be announced. For more info click here.

The club is also involved with kids.  A Scholarship is given to a local student each year from money generated from the airport day.  Click here for a Scholarship Application. The club is now working with the Big World of Flight, an organization from the state of Washington to introduce kids to aviation, and becoming involved with the Young Eagles program.
