Recently, Smith organized a day with local pilots who gave a tour of the airport to the Boy Scouts to help them earn their Aviation Merit Badge. The scouts also experienced a 30-minute flight as one of their requirements. In addition, the boys earned the Experimental Aircraft Association Young Eagle Award.
