      Ford Airport Days means free flights for kids

      The Ford Airport days in Dickinson County are back. This Saturday, September 14, families and friends will be meeting at the Ford Airport in Iron Mountain to take part in many activities.

      The event starts with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m., with flights scheduled throughout the entire day. Toy planes and simulators will be available for the kids, and flights are free for all children coming to the event.

      â??They get a 15 to 20 minute flight, including taxi time, and it's free to the kids; they can just come sign-up with their parents at the door when they come in,â?? said pilot, Will Kroeger. â??We are doing flights for adults, but we're asking for a donation for that.â??

      The Ford Airport Days event ends at 4 p.m. Food will be available, as well as rides in the Sea Plane, and admission is $3 per person or $10 for a family.
