The Young Eagles program encourages students ages 8 – 17 to learn about aviation. The free Young Eagles flight allows students to see what real pilots do on the ground and in the air. Since 1992, more than 1.9 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight from EAA’s network of volunteer pilots. In early June, the local EAA Chapter 291 volunteer pilots took over 200 young people on flights. For many, it will be the start of their journey to becoming a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller, or many other career possibilities.
