September is Aviation Month!

September 9, 2013

“Citing aviation’s vital role in Michigan’s economy, Gov. Rick Snyder has proclaimed September as Aviation Month in Michigan,” announces MDOT.  At Prein&Newhof we applaud this designation and the Governor’s recognition of the value and significance the aviation industry provides to our state’s economy. We recently expanded our airport team to be able to serve more of Michigan’s airports, and we are delighted to now call 15 Michigan airports our clients.

Here is a calendar of MDOT’s Aviation Month events.

Highlights include:

  • The 84th annual Michigan Air Tour, where a group of pilots will fly to airports in Tuscola County, Presque Isle, Sawyer International and Greenville from Sept. 19 to 22 to highlight each airport’s services and economic importance. The public is invited to view the aircraft, meet the pilots and learn about general aviation.
  • Seven “dawn patrol” events at airports in Alma, Fowlerville, Jackson, Marshall, Midland, Parchment and Sidnaw.
  • An Airport Fun Day on Sept. 7 at Dalton Airport in Flushing.
  • A Fiesta Fly-In at Houghton Lake-Roscommon County Airport on Sept. 14.
