Republic Airways 10th Annual Plane Pull

Hosted by Republic Airways

Event Description

The sky is the limit for this family-friendly event that has raised nearly $3 million since its inception, and this year aims to be the largest, most successful fundraiser yet. The event benefits the following four area children’s organizations: A Kid Again, Indiana Wish, Riley Children’s Foundation and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent. The public is invited to the free, fun event to participate or watch teams of ten race against the clock to pull a 24-ton aircraft across 15 feet. In addition to the Pull, the event will feature a Kid’s Pull where children will pull a LIFT Academy training aircraft to kick off the event, a Kids Zone with activities for youth of all ages, food and beverage vendors, and a fleet of aircraft and airport vehicles to see and tour including the LIFT Academy LIFT Lab, which features a virtual reality flight simulator to take for a test flight.
