Adults and children will be able to recall the energy, passion, and excitement of the roaring ’20s by flying aboard the Ford Tri-Motor this January 24-27 at the Sebring Regional Airport as a part of the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo. Known as the first luxury airliner, the Ford Tri-Motor redefined world travel and marked the beginning of commercial flight.
EAA Heartland Chapter 1240 has been chosen to host one of the stops on this year’s EAA Ford Tri-Motor tour. Sebring Expo attendees may purchase rides on the aircraft in advance or on site at the event and really imagine what it was like to fly on the premier airliner of the 1920s and 1930s. Funds received from ticket sales will be used to keep the Tri-Motor tour alive and help local EAA Chapter 1240 continue to provide additional youth aviation activities.
