The EAA Young Eagles Program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. The children will experience a safe and enjoyable flight that will give new perspectives on the world and life in general. Participation in the Young Eagles Program will help them understand that an individual’s potential is unlimited. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers. Most flights last between 15 - 20 minutes.
Flights will include the pilot sharing information about the airplane, reviewing an
aeronautical chart and identifying reference points to look for during the flight, completing a careful "walk around" preflight inspection of the irplane/identifying the parts that control the airplane and helping children buckle seat belts and describing the interior of the airplane, including the instrument panel.
Registration with a parent's signature is required to participate in the airplane rides. For more information or to register your children, please contact Jamie Bryn at 701-840-2324 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
