MADISON, WIS. – “International Learn To Fly Day” was first announced in 2009 during EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  Subsequently, on May 10, 2010, the United States House of Representatives provided support for the event by passing a resolution entitled, “International Learn To Fly Day.”  With this action, Congress officially designated the third Saturday of May as the annual date for this event to be held throughout the aviation community.
