Children on spring break are invited to attend “Flights of Discovery,” this Wednesday, April 16 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Floyd Bennett Field’s Ryan Visitor Center, where they can learn about airports and planes of the past.

Kids can design their own pilot wings and receive a passport to adventure. Then, visit Hanger B where Floyd Bennett’s Historic Aircraft Restoration Project (HARP) volunteers are restoring vintage planes.

Anyone can come and reservations are not required.

To learn more, call (718) 354-4606 or check out Gateway National Park on the web.
