Hi! Thank you for your interest in the National Aviation Heritage Area!


At some point over the last year, you asked for more information about the National Aviation Heritage Area by listing your email address on marketing materials produced by NAHA.


We can not wait to share with you, the wealth of information regarding all of the aviation-based events happening here in Dayton, Ohio.  Please feel free to pass along this information to friends and family via the "forward email" link at the bottom of this newsletter.


All of the events listed in this newsletter link directly back to the IMPROVED NAHA website.  Also, the NAHA Facebook and Twitter page links are easily found in the "Quick Links" section of this newsletter.


You will receive these emails periodically - some will even have special messages from Amanda Wright Lane, great-grandniece of the Wright brothers, and other respected aviation scholars!


Come. Discover. Fly! in the National Aviation Heritage Area!
