Once again, GlobalAir.com and Eagle Aviation are sponsoring an Aviation Poker Run this Saturday at Bowman Field (KLOU). Planes take off at 10 a.m., following a pancake breakfast. They will make stops in Frankfort (KFFT), Lebanon (K6I2), Bardstown (KBRY) and Elizabethtown (KEKX) before returning to Bowman for a Spaghetti lunch, live music and plenty of family-friendly activities.
In addition to plane rides and other events throughout the day, there will be a Monte Carlo event to raise money, in addition to a silent auction. Prizes include a golf foursome at Wildwood Country Club, four tickets to the Kentucky Derby Museum and Flight Sim time in a UPS full-motion simulator.
GlobalAir.com owner Jeff Carrithers and Eagle Aviation owner John Prestigiacomo sat down with Renee Murphy on WHAS11 News at noon to discuss the event. Watch the interview here and read more of their coverage here.
We thank them for helping to get the word out. We also thank the Louisville Regional Airport Authority and LouisivilleMojo.com for its Love is in the Air event.
We hope to see everyone there Saturday. Pilots can register in person at the Aero Club of Louisville or online at this page.
