Eagle Flights

Eagle FlightsEAA’s Eagle Flights® is a free introductory flight experience and informal mentoring program designed to welcome and encourage adults who want to discover flying, but don’t know how or where to take that first step. It begins with a hands-on introduction, where you’ll fly with a local EAA-member pilot who will let you follow along at the controls of the airplane to get a feel for what being a pilot is all about. After the flight, he or she can help you learn more about how to get involved in your local aviation community, including the next steps you can take on the path to becoming a pilot.

Is flying an airplane hard or difficult?  With proper training, no!  Does it take huge physical strength, endurance, or eye sight?  No!  Matter of fact, being detail oriented with a good problem solving attitude is what is needed to be a successful pilot whether male or female, big or small.  

The best part? The whole experience is free. No sales. No pressure. Just a whole lot of fun and education with a big take-home point: Your dream of flying is a lot closer than you think, but you have to take that first step.
