What is EAA Young Eagles?

The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 - 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

Since 1992, more than 1.1 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by nearly 40,000 volunteer pilots.

Participation is easy.
Print and complete a Young Eagles Registration and have your Parents or Guardian sign the form. (Note: Please print out the form on one sheet, so that the liability waiver is on the reverse side of the  registration section.)  Then show up at our event! We hope you enjoy a Young Eagles introduction to the exciting world of aviation. Make sure you come back to visit this web site to check for updates!

So what will your flight be like?

The biggest question on your mind might be about the actual flight. So what should you expect?

First of all, your pilot will explain what will happen during the flight. This might include talking about the airplane; reviewing an aeronautical chart (or map); identifying reference points during the flight; completing a careful "walk around" preflight inspection of the airplane and identifying the parts that control the airplane.

Once you are ready to go flying, your pilot will help you buckle your seat belt and describe the interior of the airplane, including the instrument panel. Pretty soon, it will be time to go flying!

Once in the air, you’ll see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way. You’ll experience the wonderful freedom of flight that many people only dream about. If you are like most Young Eagles, you’ll remember this experience for the rest of your life.

Most Young Eagle flights last between 15 and 20 minutes. Once back on the ground, there will be additional time for you to ask questions about the flight. Ask away! Your pilot will be happy to tell you more about flying and their particular airplane. And you'll be presented with your Young Eagles logbook.  (An official logbook that can be used to log future Young Eagles flights as well as actual flight lessons.) 

But your Young Eagles Flight is just your first step into the exciting world of aviation.....

The EAA has now launched a 5 step program called the   Young Eagles Flight Plan.

     Step 1   Young Eagles Flight - Introductory flight and Young Eagles Logbook.

     Step 2   Free EAA Student Membership. (Includes EAA's Sport Aviation magazine and much more.)

     Step 3   Sporty's complete flight training course. (Free online course to prepare for FAA written exam.)

     Step 4   Free flight lesson voucher. (Upon completion of Part 1 of the online course.)

     Step 5   Flight Training Scholarships.  (EAA Student Members have access to flight training and college scholarships through EAA!)
