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.

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.

Formal Eagle Flight programs have been put on hold due to the coronavirus, but if you are interested in a flight, contact the chapter and we will arrange it!  Or just come on down to our regular monthly meeting the first Tuesday of each month, and we will set something up!
