The Kansas Department of Transportation's Division of Aviation is partnering with the Kansas Commission on Aerospace Education (KCAE) to host the Fly Kansas Air Tour from Thursday, October 6 to Saturday, October 8.

The annual flying celebration promotes aviation and economic growth. Over 30 pilots have already registered to fly the Air Tour this year, visiting nine communities across Kansas during the three-day tour.

"The Fly Kansas Air Tour brings airplanes and exciting career opportunities within reach for over 1,000 children across the state - an experience we hope many will look back on as their first step into aviation," said Bob Brock, KDOT Director of Aviation.

The tour focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education. Highlights for this year include opportunities for students to learn from pilots, attend community events and view aircraft participating in the tour.

Stops include October 6 in Wellington from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM, Pittsburg from 11 AM to 1 PM, Ottawa from 2 PM to 3:45 PM and El Dorado from 5 PM to 8 PM, October 7 in Augusta from 10 AM to 11:45 AM, Rooks County from 1:30 PM to 3 PM and Hays from 4 PM to 8 PM, and October 8 in Concordia from 9:30 AM to Noon and a final stop in Junction City from 1 PM to 3 PM.
