Get Dad more than a card, or maybe a tie, this Father's Day. Take him for an airplane ride.
The 2015 Aviation Days are June 20 and 21 at York Airport on U.S. Route 30 west of York.
The annual event features free admission, static displays, plane and helicopter rides, antique cars and street rods, radio controlled airplanes and a pancake breakfast by the Gettysburg Barnstormers, airplane enthusiasts who describe themselves as "plane crazy."
Event spokesman Steve Nagorny said the yearly event is held "to open the airport up to the public." Nagorny called Aviation Days a "general aviation" show "to promote aviation" in York County.
Also featured will be rides in a Stearman biplane.
"They are wood and canvas planes that were used as basic trainers before World War II," Nagorny said.
Stearman plane rides start at $35 a person for a 10- to 15-minute ride, Nagorny said.
Dad can also get a ride in a Cessna or a helicopter for the same price.
Static displays include a B-25 Mitchell bomber and other WWII era light aircraft.
Aviation Days is hosted by York Flight Training and is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 20 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 21.
In addition to the Barnstormers' breakfast, a barbecue lunch and dinner also will be available.
