NORTH LITTLE ROCK (NLRMA) – The North Little Rock Municipal Airport at 8200 Remount Road #1 will host its 2nd Annual Airport Day and Car Show on Saturday, June 28, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Organized with assistance from the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the event is free and open to the public.

“North Little Rock has a hidden gem in our airport, and we want to share that,” said airport director, Clay Rogers. “Last year’s event was a tremendous success and this year will be bigger and better.”

Pilots from all over Arkansas and surrounding areas will be flying in for the event in sport planes, antique planes, custom and home-built planes. There will be formation flying and antique cars will be on display. Car owners paid a $20 entry fee per car which will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Free hot dogs, chips and drinks will be available for everyone.

"With the parade of flights, formation flying, static displays, and antique car show to go along with it, there is something for everyone. Families, children, and people of all ages would have a great time and are encouraged to come," Rogers said.

North Little Rock Airport Day is part of the airport’s efforts to help the community understand its importance to the local economy and to inspire interest among younger generations in aviation. Last year Airport Day drew 500 people from the local area.
