Friends of Jenny is proud to announce "The 2015 Flying Jenny Centennial Air Tour".
Our Jenny, 38262 is available for public appearances. Based in the heartland of America, Bowling Green, Kentucky (BWG), 38262 is scheduled for flights as far south as Florida, as far north as Oshkosh, and as far west as Columbia, Mo. and several points in between. Each flight plan will be supported by a team of FOJ pilots and ground Crew that will travel in support of the mission. Each major flight will look for partnerships along the proposed flight path.
Weather permitting, our Jenny will fly between 150 and 200 miles per day. While transiting, we will seek partnerships that will typically include an EAA chapter hosting our visit, by providing an enclosed hanger and fuel, lodging for our crew (homes are just fine) in return for tours of the 38262, demonstration flights, educational packets on the importance of early aviation to America, and media kits to promote in advance the Jenny's appearance.
If you would like to be included in one of Jenny's flight plans, please let us know, by clicking here.
