Events include the seventh annual fly-in at Gogebic-Iron County Airport on Sept. 8, and the Western Michigan University College of Aviation fly-in pancake breakfast on Sept. 15 at W.K. Kellogg Airport in Battle Creek.

Dreams and Wings Fly Day will be held on Sept. 29 at Dupont Lapeer Airport in Lapeer, where pilots will give rides to children with disabilities.

Michigan Air Tour, where a group of pilots will fly to airports in Detroit, Marshall, Adrian, Battle Creek, Cadillac and Alpena from Sept. 21 to 23 to highlight each airport's services and economic importance.

State officials say aviation-related activities contribute more than $10 billion annually to Michigan's economy.
