About Sugar Valley Airport
The NEW Sugar Valley Airport was established for the purpose of providing diverse support for persons interested in general aviation. The support may include simply giving a young person a tour of the airport and letting them sit in the airplanes. It might include mentoring someone interested in becoming an airplane mechanic (A&P), or helping someone get started in flight training. The airplanes are being used to support organizations like Remote Area Medical and others that provide needed services.
The classroom and other facilities are used to support the education of pilots providing them with the valued FAA Wings Pilot Proficiency Program credits. Free aviation ground schools are conducted periodically during each year. Check out some of the most recent educational activities.
A Civil Air Patrol unit ("flight") has been established at Sugar Valley Airport. An auxiliary of the US Air Force, the CAP has three major activities: Aerospace Education, the Cadet Program, and Emergency Services. Aerospace Education is provided for cadets and adults. The Cadet Program, which will be a major focus of the Sugar Valley Flight, provides leadership training, character development, aerospace education, and physical fitness. Details here, call 336-998-3971, or email aviation@SugarValleyAirport.org.
The facilities are available for recreation such as Scout camporees, cookouts, and fly-in camping.
Sugar Valley Airport partners with other organizations with similar goals and objectives in order to establish a network of like-minded people who can achieve more by working together.
In addition, some of the facilities of the airport are being used to support the development of arts and crafts and to train those interested in developing such skills. This is being done under the leadership of Sugar Valley Craftsmen.
The end result of these efforts is to develop relationships around which persons interested in service and aviation can gather to explore and pursue their interests.
