A real-life experience is defined as life as it is lived in reality, involving welcomed and unwelcomed experiences, as distinct from a fictional world. Real life experiences are mainly thought to occur with adults. However, children can have a “Wheel” Life Experience at AVP come July 10th, as they can get up close and personal with air and ground vehicles, rather than just reading about them, or seeing them in action around their communities. These machines are something that children get to see, but not get to touch or be close to. Those real-life experiences can now be “Wheel” Life Experiences that children can enjoy!

This event will be family-friendly, where children will be able to experience all types of vehicles, including air transportation, construction, public service, emergency, utility, landscaping, delivery, and many more. Children will be able to get in the driver’s seat of their favorite vehicles, learn about those vehicles, and have a “Wheel” Life Experience like adults get to do on a regular basis, as well as see and talk to the men and women who serve and protect our community.

What is AVP’s Wheel Life Experiences?

Wheel Life Experiences will be a family-friendly event at AVP that offers an up close and personal opportunity to explore air and ground vehicles that are usually seen, but not necessarily have to advantage of getting to touch or be in close proximity to those vehicles. The children CAN at this event!

How much does it cost?

Tickets are $5 per person, and can be purchased online.

Where will this event take place?

This will take place at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport (AVP).

What does it benefit?

Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Pittston Twp. Police Department’s K-9 Unit, and their willingness to have a 2nd K-9 join their police force!

What does the Pittston Twp. Police Department’s K-9 Unit do for the community?

The Pittston Township Police Department’s K-9 Unit responds to assist officers in the field when necessary. The K-9 Unit is also deployed upon calls for assistance with other local, state and federal agencies. The K-9 Team is used for a wide array of tasks, which include drug detection, locating fleeing suspects, missing persons, searching homes and buildings, and search and rescue.
