PERRYVILLE, Mo. (KFVS) - Perryville will be buzzing with all types of aircraft and visitors on Sunday, May 1.

The free event will showcase airplanes, helicopters, ultralights, gyros, RC model displays, drones, parachutes and more.

Organizers say the family friendly event is all about introducing aviation to visitors of all ages.

“We trying to attract young people in, the kids,” said Greg Gremminger with the Perryville Airport Advisory Board. “We need to attract people into aviation.
