Default STEM Aviation Event

This past weekend there was a aviation expo put on by the Ascension STEM
Group and Louisiana Regional Airport, KREG.
It was a huge success, with over 500 that RSVPed and many walk ons.
We had eleven categories of aircraft for the people to view. They went from
WWII to modern jets.
Pearl, my RV-9A, represented the Experimental Category. Parked on one side of Pearl was a Navion and a J3 Cub on the other, with a Stearman on the end.
The Air Force, Air National Guard, CAP and State organizations were present.
They had activities and prizes for the little kids and lots of airplanes for the big kids.
This weekend was also the monthly fly-in/fish fry for EAA chapter 244. So it was a super busy time at the airport and a giant success. Lots of RV's also
flew in for the monthly fly-in.
Plane owners were busy the entire 4 hours, 10am-2pm, answering questions
about their aircraft from the folks walking down the flightline of planes.
This was the 1st of this event with STEM and KREG and before everyone left it was agreed/approved for next year.
Great time had by all.
