Wings and Wheels rolls into town

The third annual Wings and Wheels Fly-In and Car Show rolls into town from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, April 8 at Minden Airport. This event will feature various aircraft and cars on display, pilot competitions, door prizes, food, music and vendor booths featuring local businesses.

Hosts AirRunners Aviation (ARA) is composed of young, inspiring aviators that strive to bring together the community and familiarize them with the opportunities and benefits of aviation. 

Molly Fowler, with ARA, said the organization was founded in 2021 by Parker Still, herself, and Landon Wilhite. 

“On one of our cross-country flights we realized that there is not a way for young pilots to communicate with each other about aviation,” Fowler said. “With the average age of a pilot being 40-plus years, ARA wants to help younger pilots come together to help each other, so we can be the pilots of tomorrow.”

With that goal in mind, AirRunners Aviation began hosting the Wings and Wheels Fly-In and Car Show.
