Young Eagles

Young Eagles is a worldwide EAA program that introduces young people between the ages of 8 and 17 to the world of aviation and provides their first airplane ride free of charge.  To date, EAA has given over 2 million flights!


Youth participating in the program receive a Young Eagles certificate and have their name entered in the World's Largest Logbook at EAA Headquarters in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  They will receive their own personal log book after their flight.  Included will be a code to unlock an  EAA Student Membership that includes EAA's Sport Aviation  Magazine online, e-newsletter and free admission to over 300 Science and Technology Museums.  Sporty's Complete Flight Training Course is available FREE to Young Eagles that wish to continue on their aviation journey.  Qualifying Young Eagles receive a voucher for a Free Flight Lesson and opportunities to apply for additional flight training scholarships.
