Ten children took plane rides during the event which seeks to encourage excitement around the field of aviation.

Nies has given plane rides to 350 to 400 kids over the years through the Young Eagles Pilot program. "It's really important that we try to get these kids into engineering and avaiation or both", says Nies.
