Falcon Field Airport in Mesa is coordinating with aircraft owners to host Cockpit Close-Up, a free community event 8-10 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month.
It features volunteer pilots based at Falcon Field and their private aircraft.
The next Cockpit Close-Up will be on Sept. 2 at the airport terminal building, 4800 E. Falcon Drive in Mesa. The featured aircraft will be a 1977 Bellanca Decathlon, standard. It has a 150-horsepower engine and fixed- pitch propeller. It is an aerobatic airplane, and is often used for basic aerobatic training, upset recovery and tailwheel training.
Falcon Field includes a total of 784 acres between Greenfield, Higley, McDowell and McKellips roads in northeast Mesa. There are currently more than 800 aircraft based at Falcon Field. This includes fixed-wing single- and multi-engine aircraft, turboprops, jets and helicopters, according to falconfieldairport.com.
