About the EAA

Young Eagles Program

 

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 1.6 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 more than 42,000 volunteer pilots.

 

EAA Chapter 471s ‘Young Eagle’ program celebrates it’s 25th year in 2017.

The program has helped develop the next generation of young aviators in America and continues to introduce more children to flying through annual events. If you’d like your child to learn to appreciate flying, then watch this page for the next scheduled Young Eagles event..

 

We hope you enjoy a Young Eagles introduction to the exciting world of aviation soon and continue exploring the wonderful world of aviation!
