It’s not everyday kids can get this up close and personal with an airplane.

The program, Positive Altitude, aims to broaden the outlook of local kids. Over 250 kids participated in the event – with 25 of those kids (those who won an essay contest) getting the chance to fly in training aircraft.

This event also functions as a preview to the California Capital Airshow, happening at Mather Airport on Oct. 5 and 6.

FOX40 is a proud sponsor of the California Capital Airshow and invites you to witness the spine-tingling performances that promise to roar across the skies with non-stop action throughout airshow weekend! Don’t miss the jets, world-class aerobatics, wingsuit flyers, barnstorming, wing walking, ground acts, warbirds, and endless entertainment and interactive displays from 9:00-5:00pm each day on the one of the largest airport ramps in the western United States
