Cessna Demo Day Showcases Aviation Services at Air Associates of Missouri
By Carmelo Turdo
Air Associates of Missouri hosted its Cessna Demo Day at their location on the north ramp at Spirit of St. Louis Airport. The annual event showcases the flight instruction, aircraft rental and maintenance services available at Air Associates of Missouri. Also featured were visiting Cessna aircraft, including a Citation Mustang for which 2 rides were offered through an on-site drawing. The Cessna Skycatcher, the Light Sport aircraft featured in the current Discovery Flight series, was available for inspection along with the Cessna Skyhawks used by Air Associates of Missouri for flight instruction. Discovery flights were offered for those interested in testing their wings, and many visitors inquired about the current Spring Learn to Fly Special. Along with the always friendly staff, representatives from NationAir Aviation Insurance, The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum and The Aero Experience were on hand to discuss their services with visitors. Here are some scenes from today's event:
